Today, the girls and I got to go on an informative tour of the Braille Institute. First of all, I didn’t even know we had one in our area. Secondly, we learned about all the wonderful classes, services, and programs they provide for the visually impaired. The institute is a non profit organization and relies solely on the support of donors. All the classes and services are offered free of charge. 

We even saw a letter signed by Helen Keller herself in the 1940’s.

All in all, it was a fantastic way to spend the morning, learning something new with our friends.

Thank you, Lord for these opportunities!
