I believe there are some impressions from childhood that will last – that will emerge from the subconscious maybe even at times into adulthood.
That’s what I think might have happened at Sharing Our Hearts fun night right here at The Parenting Place last week.
Derek, a dad who uses a wheelchair – told us his story – showed us his “tricks” – said he loves to dance but can’t because his legs don’t work – except watch this – he can make his wheel chair dance – and dance he did!
And then whoever wanted to independently have a turn at climbing into the wheel chair and turning the big wheels to make it go – could – and did.
This is what I was hoping for during this Sharing Our Hearts night – that we might understand a little bit more, appreciate our differences – and joyfully embrace them.
Thank you, Derek for sharing and showing us how.
