Touring the Birmingham (Alabama) Botanical Gardens
I noticed something magical about a wheelchair this past week.
First, getting a loved one out of a chair or bed away from four dark walls does wonders for their psychological well-being and self-confidence.
Second, without exception, every person my mother and I encountered while roaming the streets and parks in this chariot could not have been more generous, thoughtful, patient and kind.
Happy Mother's Day!
No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope and fear;
But grateful take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
- John G. Whittier
