As you said, we should be thankful for all those things we take for granted - such as our mobility.
My man fractured a bone in his foot yesterday, and is finding the experience of losing his mobility for 6 weeks frustrating and humbling.

thank you, both. yes, the things we take for granted...

i visited Bandelier many years ago (a national park near los alamos, new mexico), and noticed a visitor in a wheelchair.

i climbed the ladder which led to a kiva, while she was forced to remain on the path.

now i notice handicapped parking, but rarely see visitors in wheelchairs.
