So I'm so pleased to have my truck and my vehicular independence, and I think, Finally... now, if I want to go to the store and get some chips or a snack or dinner or anything... finally, I can.
And then I think, But then I'll have to walk around the store.
And walking... that's not good. It's certainly not fun. Or easy. Or pleasant.
So, I can get there, but I don't want to do what needs doing (walking around the store) once I get there.
So, being free to go anywhere, any time I want... is freedom to suffer.
I am, though, still going to get hand controls. Truck is much easier to drive now, and I can still operate it safely and successfully, but the nerves in my legs are sending so much "static" that it's only a matter of time before foot-operated controls won't be accessible.
And some stores have those cute little electric goodies you can drive around the store in... I've used them twice now, and they're a godsend.
Blessings come in very interesting flavors.
