I was in a car accident on January 12, 2009. You probably already knew that. I just passed the six month mark last week. It is hard to believe it was that long ago!
On January 20th, a handicap parking permit was issued for me. I remembered looking at the date on the tag...July...JULY! No way am I going to need a handicap parking tag in July. By July I will be back to bopping in and out of stores, restaurants, businesses, etc.
It's July. Today the handicap parking permit expired.
While I am not "bopping" anywhere. I do go wherever I want to go. It is amazing to me that I get around well and can continue on after such a trauma. The wheel chair and walker are long gone.
I am blessed to be able to throw that placard away today and not need to request a renewal!
(Although I will miss snagging those close parking spots!)
