Reckless Saturday

True story. Tara accelerated forward unaware of the people on either side of her. Turning a corner she swiped a stand causing the store employee to move quickly then pick up after her once she passed. At each turn I held my breath as she seemed not to care about the vehicle she was in or the consequences of her mistakes. I kept looking behind us, expecting to have the authorities step in, but only catching brief glances of concerned people. She came to a dead end, what I thought could have ended it, right then and there. But nay nay, she threw it into reverse hitting another stand, making me grunt in disgust. I didn’t think we had insurance for this and it was starting to concern me. Finally she pulled the electric wheel chair cart back up to where we got it. I was relieved she was done.

Despite that, it was a great day. Tara wanted to venture out to the mall so we did (the scenes above took place in a number of unnamed stores there). The kids hung out with us, tried on some clothes, bought a fraction of what was tried on and then we capped it off with a HuHot lunch. You can tell that Tara is doing much better. Tonight we are even going to church and Tara is really excited to worship with her community.

Your prayers and thoughtfulness continue to bless us. Daily we get cards of encouragement in the mail and comments on the blog. Thank you for lifting us up in prayer to the one who sustains us.
