Lee and I finally had a chance to talk after our January meetings, and she wants me to attend the Houston Low Vision Support Group in Bayland Park to talk to them about making blankets and possibly reading books to them. This group formed when Lee was a student at University of Houston and saw a need for people with low vision to form a group to help each other. The group became large enough to break off into a Southwest Houston Group and that is the group I will talk too. The initial visit will be just to show them the blankets and talk about what we do. They will then have some time to think about if they want to make blankets individually, in a small group, or wait awhile before deciding. They meet on the 2nd Friday of the month at Bayland Park, 6400 Bissonnet. This is another opportunity to have someone help us make more blankets while letting them know how wonderful it feels to help the community. I am looking forward to this new challenge.
I would like to think that I can't be described in a short paragraph. Some adjectives that come to mind: curious, caring, kind, generous, excitable, motivated, emotional, fun, organized. What do you think? Claire
