Describing the birthday cards

This is what happens now that I no longer have enough sight to see for myself. Since 2004 this is what happens each year as either my friend Gabriella or my mom do it for me. I still have lots of fun listening to them describe my birthday cards to me but just remember now, each person describes things differently and this is often the case with my birthday cards.

Some of the birthday cards come with raised images but truth be told, if I am not told what these images are then I am at a loss to know what they are. However, there are times when it is a bit easy to guess what they are.

So, how do I appreciate my birthday cards these days? I pay much more attention to the written words and whenever my birthday cards are described to me I can easily recall images from my memory bank and use these to help me remember.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
