Traveling in a wheelchair has it’s moments and once in a blue moon years of frustrations are redeemed.
Restrooms can be a test with only one handicapped space to 10 others. And in airports, in particular, women with luggage, love the extra room. Departing from SFO, preparing to pre-board for a flight with no wheelchair access to the restroom, it was no surprise to find the airport ladies’ room wheelchair stall occupied. As I parked my chair outside, the door flung open and a woman burst out. “I saw your chair and came out. I’ll use another.” Two strangers hugged in the restroom knowing that though we both had been inconvenienced
Love had won.
