Broken pieces

Hey everybody!

I was just thinking about something & wanted to share. I worked for several years with licensed therapists who worked with severely abused children. One of the therapists was just awesome. She was working with this one kid who had attachment disorder. She took him out looking for broken pieces of glass for a couple of weeks. They gathered up the pieces of glass and when they had enough, she started having him glue the pieces on a picture frame. This went on for over a month. When they finally finished his picture frame, she told him: "When we first started, all we had was a bunch of broken glass. But now we have this one of a kind picture frame. We took something that other people would call useless (or bad) and turned it in to something wonderful! It is like your life. Even though bad things have happened, we can pick up the pieces and you can be anything you want to be!"

How cool is that!? I just thought it was a neat way to get a point across, and something that child will always remember! I was blessed to have worked with the ladies I worked with! They have really made a difference in the lives of some children who literally have nobody to care for them!
