Mobility Aid

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

We had a seminar about two years ago emphasizing that a person has to always think of excellence in everything that he does and it was initially presented with two disabled partners dancing--a woman has only one arm and her partner has only one leg.  Now, you can start wondering how did they manage to dance... they danced without riding a wheel chair or any mobility aid.  We were simply amazed.

Of course the two dancer underwent training to do those graceful moves. 

There are a lot of institutions who assist disabled individuals, elderly too, to learn how to do things that a non-disabled person can do and assist in finding a suitable mobility aid for them because no two persons have the same disability or mobility requirement--everything is personalized.  One organization that does this is NMEDA (National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association). 

NMEDA does not sell mobility aids but assist in finding the dealer with the perfect aid for a person.  You can find their dealers near you just by visiting their website and typing your zip code.  I checked mine and it is just a few blocks away.

NMEDA also makes sure that the products of the dealers  underwent evaluation through their Quality Assurance Program to make sure that patients get the best value for their money.  Their QAP is the only nationally accredited program of the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry.

If you have friends or family members who are in need of assistance, you can check out NMEDA and see for yourself how they can help you.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
********************
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
