Fast forward to today. I am an adult now, no longer attending school (I do miss it) where I had more contacts. Though building relationships is difficult for me, I really do enjoy friends. Listening on the radio or TV to baseball and football games is a big deal for me. I mostly enjoy quiet surroundings, as unexpected loud noises hurt due to my C.P., but Young Life is very cool, even with my noisy friends! Since it is difficult for me to be in a regular work environment, finding a job where I could make friends and perform the tasks, taking into consideration my speech and physical limitations, was not easy.
That is where the team came in; they shared their creativity, dedication and vision. We brainstormed, compiled ideas, laughed, cried, ate some great dinners and BJ Card Company was born. Now I work embossing the cards and envelopes – this takes strength and perseverance – I go on some sales calls and deliveries – this takes courage and calm- and I listen to and encourage others when they accomplish things for this company – this takes focus and caring. All in all I love working in and with BJ Card Company. When I hear from people how much they love the cards and see the embossing I have done, I feel good. Accomplishing something enjoyed and appreciated by others makes life much more fulfilling, it brings me joy!
