      I am so excited! 🙂 Yesterday my cane and I went on an outing. We walked to the truck (over gravel) and then I [U]drove[/U] to the bank, Walgreens and actually got out and went into Wal Mart. They have those motor cars so I was able to drive to the potting soil display and talk someone into putting it in my basket. After a C S person took it to the truck for me I drove home. This is the first time I have driven since May 4, 2009 and it felt wonderful! It didn’t feel like baby steps, it felt like great big wonderful leaps and bounds.

      I think it is time we share some really happy thoughts. Think about one thing last week that was a “good thing”, and share it with the rest of us. I love how we support each other through the tough times, but I get so much hope through the happy thoughts sharing.

      Blessings to you all

      either baby steps or giant steps a step is a step. Congratulations to you and your cane. I remember my celebration when I and my cane went out for the first time.

      True Story…
      My Mother took me to Sears about two months out of the hospital. I had my cane and ugly orthopedic shoes. I looked emaciated but had a bump from being 8 months pregnant. I was not a pretty sight. As I hobbled about, I got a lot of stares. Two women asked my mother, “what happened?” Without missing a beat, my Mother replied, “skiing accident.” The stunned looks on their faces was priceless.
