An Update

I just couldn't resist posting this picture of guess who....
There has been a lot happening for Sophie, since she arrived back from the Paralympics & I could pretty much fill a month of posts with her!
But there is a special reason I am posting this picture - it also features her beautiful sister Rebecca & it's just so darn nice to see them together!

It was taken at the "Attitude Awards" last night
The Attitude Awards are a new initiative developed to honour the outstanding achievements of New Zealanders living with disabilities.

Such lovely young women, Deb! I think that award was tailormade for Sophie...she has such an incredible positive attitude. Actually, saying that almost sounds like it takes something away from Sophie's attitude. To me, it seems she lives life fully, and her disability is just a circumstance that happened. . .it isn't the focus of what she does. Does that make any sense? Sophie, you are a person to be admired!

P.S. Thanks for the HoHo Hoe card! I needed a giggle to get me going this morning :)
