* Sabrina is one of my students in a workshop for so-called mentally disabled persons.

We discussed the last days, if God has a (heavenly) Christmas party. ‘No, I don’t think so, Sabrina’ … ‘Oh, what a boring life!’ … ‘But if he has one who will then be the guests? … ‘Angels, Santa Claus and my neighbor!’ … ‘Your neighbor?’… ‘Yes, she told me this morning, Christmas will kill her’… ‘O.k., so, what will they have for dinner, Sabrina?’ … ‘For dinner? No dinner! Or did you ever saw a picture from God eating? But a Christmas Wheel of Fortune would be fun!’

So she was cutting, coloring, clueing … angels, her neighbor, Santa Claus, God, stars, the moon, the wheel and a few simple stools … even God gets tired after a while from standing around and having small talks …

    A priceless display of Sabrina's Christmas Dinner! Thank you so much for sharing this with the JPG community. I wonder, along with Llorenç, who decides on the disability. She seems to have a very good grasp of the idea of Christmas!

    HOw incredibly sweet! From a child's heart came this increcible piece of art! My grand daughter in school was asked to draw a pic of Jesus..she drew Jesus with long hair painted nails and pj's with hearts on them..Jesus is a girl! Children are so wodeful. Such great gifts to us all..Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful srory with me. I loved the stools!

    What an abundance of love Sabrina has in her heart and so well illustrated in her wonderful work of art!!!!!!!!! I do so agree, who decides and on what basis that certain people are disabled. The truth is that we are all disabled in one way or another and have to learn to compensate for such!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this profound artwork and Christmas wishes, I wish you, your family and Sabrina a beautiful Christmas filled with love, compassion and joy.
