I am learning a lot about handicap accessibility and getting a meaningful, humbling glimpse into the life that so many lead not just for a season but for years or a lifetime. I am restricted to not putting weight on my right leg for 6 weeks. It means I am not supposed to drive and am limited to walkers, crutches and wheelchairs. Everywhere I go, I learn about how accessible a place is in terms of wheelchairs and handicap needs including homes, churches, malls and businesses. Its amazing to see what is the most challenging. For example, at the church, the challenge is that all of the key doors (bathrooms, elevators etc.) are very heavy which makes it harder to navigate. I still cannot fully imagine what someone goes through living in a wheel chair, but I am thankful for this experience as I have gained so much understanding.
