Worst Thing About Disability


Trudy’s greatest hobby was stitching plastic canvas and she wouldn’t let this enjoyment go, even when she broke her left arm. Trudy was determined to finish her niece’s birthday present, a Dragon’s Stadium sign for her bedroom door.

When Trudy told her brother of her project, he laughed and said, “Good luck with that. How are you going to succeed with a broken arm?”

Trudy felt discouraged, recalled her other skills and became determined to complete her project. She knew she could complete the project.

Trudy used a pin cushion to hold her needle while threading it, then held her canvas down off the edge of a table with her chin and a can while she stitched. After a day of stitching and using her chin as a second hand, Trudy’s present was ready.

While wrapping the gift, Trudy smiled to herself and said, “The worst thing about disability is that people see it before they see you. A person can do anything they put their mind to.”
