This is our first lunch date in Croydon (on the corner of the main street) for 15 months. – and it was hard work!!
It was also really nice.
I parked the van outside the cafe then Ariel walked in with the crutches – that was a first time experience.
We can’t wait to get our disabled parking sticker –
because it will make outings like this more possible (Ariel cannot walk long distances with his crutches).
So we look at this photo and have tears in our eyes that he is “walking into a cafe with crutches!!!”
and also tears in our eyes that it was very slow and hard and a little dangerous (and took the afternoon to recover).
He still needs a lot of help with hand tasks, which are a big part of life.
Thank God for Ariel’s determination.
Thank God for a safe home, kind carers and food on the table.
Pray for endurance – For Ariel physically but also the whole family spiritually.
We are helped by a playlist of good Christmas songs at present!
“Hark now hear the angels sing a new king born today.
And man shall live for evermore because of Christmas Day”
Always good to hear that good news…..
