It's funny we had some family members say they hated it when we called her Shy-shy so now we make sure to do it.  She always goes by Shy as as she says my name is Shy inless I am in trouble then it's Shyanna Marie!  Shy and Spring have become "the girls" .  Shia is a cool name , it's different but not out there . Conner is named after a hair dryer! The way hubby said said it sounded like Conner and it stuck.

I am thinking about doing a few different photos and putting this poem in the middle over Springs paw print and Shyannas hand print  or is that just too tacky?

Just because you cannot see it, doesn't mean it isn't there. I may have a disability; no one should have to bear. I may not use a wheelchair and I may not use a cane. To you, I walk just perfectly, though you don't feel my pain.  I have two arms; they seem to work just fine from what you know. But inside I may be dying even though it doesn't show. I may have diabetes, a disease with no known cure. It can kill me as I sleep tonight; my future is unsure. Inside my body may be slowly dying from disease. Just because I'm talking normal, in a minute I may seize. Maybe I'm autistic; I may have ADHD. I may have suffered trauma; maybe it's PTSD. You may think I'm just silly; I just need to take it slow.  Maybe something in my brain doesn't work, but you may never know. To you I seem just fine, and all is well from what you see. But I could have suffered a great loss that may have broken me. I could have lost a child, or a spouse or a best friend. A loss like that can make a person's life seem like the end.  I may be losing hope because a cure is coming slow. So when you see me with my service dog, don't judge what you don't know.  Maybe he's the only thing that's keeping me alive. For all you know his presence here is helping me to thrive. So, just because you cannot see it, doesn't mean it isn't there. I do have a disability, one I hope you may never bear.
