Today we went to the ball field for the afternoon. Brian and Emma's boys both had their first baseball game, we went to be supportive. It was a fun afternoon. Emma was determined to see her boys play their first games, I don't blame her at all!! So, Brian wheeled her out in the mud and gunk. It actually appeared to go much more simply that I had imagined it would. So, Emma was positioned in a place where she could see her boys without sinking into the mud. I cannot tell you how many people walked up to the fence and stood right in front of her so she could not see at all. Okay, maybe it wasn't that many....maybe 4 or 5.....but it seemed like a TON! Could they not see her and the wheelchair, and her leg sticking out? Could they not see that she couldn't move to see around them? Did they even notice her there at all? How many times are we oblivious to the things going on around us? It made me think about myself and how aware I am. I am sure I could be better, more considerate. I will work on this!
