366 days of gratitude

We spotted a parking space just a few metres from the cafe where we planned to eat lunch.

I pulled in then noticed a sign saying it was a 30 minute park.

“Is that enough time?” I asked.

“Maybe, but with this it won’t matter,” my friend said and pulled a mobility parking permit from her handbag.

She has a physical disability which enables her to use the permit which doubled the time we were able to stay in the park.

I was grateful for the extra time it gave us and that it made me appreciate that the ease of movement which I consider normal isn’t normal for everyone.
