St. Ignatius of Loyola on "offering it up": "Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O Lord, I return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and Thy grace, for this is sufficient for me." May it be done to me according to Thy Word.

I think this quote speaks to the twice exceptional child perfectly. If parents and teachers always harp on the disability and what they cannot do, they begin to feel discouraged and frustrated. Seeing the abilities of the student and drawing attention to their strengths encourages students and helps to ensure their success.
words of the wise.
A quote I live by....people are too worried about being safe. They think they take a risk, but think of the last risk you took, did you do it whole heartedly...fully aware of the pain you might have? Or did you even notice if you were really done holding on to whatever it was you were holding onto before deciding to take this jump?
