Sandy is a dear friend of mine. She has had two knees and a hip replaced. She walks with a cane mostly. Yesterday we went to a street fair and she used her walker. The fact that she agrees to participate in events like this says much about her; she avoids nothing.
As we walked, I was so appreciative of the space people gave her. The fair was very crowded, and people stepped aside to accommodate her. She had no expectations and is very patient. We walked, we explored vendors, we bought a couple of things. And then we decided it was time to go. She was in pain and I was ready to leave. We typically have similar timing.
Aging with a friend.
