For the Love of Shopping

Yesterday the girls and I (along with my mom and John) went to the Ridgedale mall to shop for back to school clothes.  We roamed the mall for nearly five hours and were sucessful in our search for the pefect pair of jeans for Winona and cute shirts for Sharon.  

It is a great feeling to be able to walk without holding onto my mom or needing to use a mobility scooter.  I can get in between those narrow paths of clothes so my mom doesn't have to bring everything to me in the big isle.  Yesterday, I was able to dig through piles of jeans until we found Winona's size.  Plus, I could assist Sharon is getting the shirts that were up high, so she could get a better look at them.  

I can't help but feel blessed to be able to shop independtly with my daugters.  My mom always had to come with to help me.  These days, I can call her to come shopping with us just for the fun of it!  I love my mobility and will NEVER take it for granted.  


  1. We take it for granted so many things, I think its awesome that you take the time to just appreciate, and celebrate even the littlest things! We all need to do that once in awhile.

    1. Thanks Bonnie! I know that you know what I mean when I talk about appreciating the little things in life. I hope all is well for you up in Canada. I sure wish we were in Mexico though. :)

  2. I can recall you telling us the tale of one of the first times you and Ann went shopping after you had gained mobility. You were full of energy and didn't want to lull around.... Shopping was fun! :-)
