This time last year, Center City was a swirling snow globe.
|Even 20 degrees is|
invigorating when you've
got your own wheels!
But my wheelchair’s green tag granted me access to the entire hospital. So my arms propelled those wheels frantically! My first taste of independence in almost two months!
|One year ago, a visit from |
my favorite Skatin' Santas
|How can you NOT|
believe when your gym's
decorated like this??
Last December, that party was just a photo. It hung on the wall of my hospital room for weeks. Returning to that warm holiday tradition seemed miles away. (Turns out, it was!)
We strayed blocks from my house. The cement sidewalk sent reverberations through my socket.
And behold, Termini’s Bakery was still open at 5 p.m! We basked in the light of those dancing cannolis.
This week, I also received a long, skinny box in the mail. Inside was a Snow Broom, a curious tool with a 5-foot handle and a huge Styrofoam blade.
BELIEVE, I wanted to tell them!
They know I'm wishing against snowdays this year. As a teacher, it contradicts my instincts. I am choosing to believe in a WINTER WITHOUT SNOW.
Of course, Riley is wise beyond her years.
