posted for Nov20words: thankful

Around the start of the first Covid lockdown, my osteoarthritis took a down-turn leaving me only able to walk about 150m.

Imagine how thankful I was when friends generously gave us this scooter as they were upgrading to a roadworthy scooter (which will always be a step too far for me!)

I was a bit shaky to start with, also a bit self-conscious, but was soon doing passable 3-point turns. (Don't ask Ray for verification....)

The scooter has enabled us to have outings to local gardens, seasides and National Trust Properties during a time of mainly stay-at-home directives.

So 'thankful' is not really even an adequate word.
What a lovely photo of you scooting about the place. A wonderful sense of freedom for you.

How lovely that you are still able to be mobile and what a generous gift from your friend.

It must be so chilly you look really rugged up.

What a great way to be able to still get around and enjoy the outdoors - good for the spirit, too.

That is wonderful for the word. We are lucky to live in a world with so many helpful devices. That was very nice of your friend.

You look ready to conquer. Being thankful and showing gratitude is so very important, especially this year.
