I sent this article http://www.articlealley.com/article_789379_17.html to a friend who uses a wheelchair and had an email response back from her. It had made her very emotional but she was really pleased with it.
I think I summed up how others feel about being in a wheelchair and the various circumstances we come across when using one. There are numerous reactions to someone in a wheelchair and I just wrote from the heart.
It turns out this friend is celebrating something she was told would never happen when she was younger. She is finally getting her wish to live independently. She is one determined lady who I greatly admire.
It is these people who touch my life that spur me on to help others and offer support wherever I can.
Just knowing this lovely lady is a privilege.
