Thankfully, though, I did most of my shopping early this year, so Ken and I don’t have to worry about finding parking at the mall (yes, even with a handicap placard, it’s still hard to find a parking spot in December!). I only have but a few more gifts to pick out on...

A Christmas Longing

Beautiful FeetThe other day, I met with a friend, and oh my goodness — she had the cutest shoes on! You know… high heels, with nicely manicured toes. It made me think of back when I was on my feet and I could wear all kinds of fun shoes. But now? Well, not only can I not walk, but my feet have changed. Sitting in a wheelchair all day...

Space at The TableI grew up in a family of six, and when dinnertime rolled around and Mother would call that dinner was served… we would all run to our place at the table.
