It’s been a little quiet of late within this community. I have to admit that Jackie and I have been busy doing all the usual things that MSA demands of us but also have spent a couple of weeks on a cruise through Europe.
Our holiday reminded us of how incredibly kind and caring some people can be. We are lucky that we have a wheelchair that can get us to most places - with some pushing power from me. There was always however someone offering to help, to open the door, to give up their seat or to carry a bag.
All this made me think that it’s not the width of the doors, or the slope of the ramp that really matters. As important as that is, what counts most is the willingness of others - friends, tour guide, shopkeeper or cafe owner to be positive and make things as easy as can be.
What have you been doing over the summer and how can we all help each other “make things easier” over the winter ahead?
