began to fail me. It was bad enough when one knee hurt but now both knees are failing me leading me to walk with a cane for balance.
Now that I have entered the physical disable category, I am experiencing a level of kindness from strangers that I never had before. People are just being so caring and nice to me. My husband on the other hand insists on me getting a knee replacement and that will solve all my problems and he genuinely believe he is helping me by constantly bringing up this operation.
Two months ago while I was walking in the Parkway Mall with my cane, my shoelace was untied and I got the shock of my life. As I scanned the area for a sitting place because there is no way I could stop and tie my shoelace. Gone are the days when I could balance on one knee and bend down. Any attempt to do this now would have me toppling over. I need to find a seat, spread my legs wide to make way for the stomach drop, and then bend down to tie.
Two browned skinned women approached me and the younger one said, "Excuse me Miss, but, can I tie your shoelace for you? This surprise had me in a lockjaw.
She continued. "My Mom said I should tie your shoelace for you before you trip over them."
"Thank you so much. I really appreciate it," I said.
The young lady bent down and tied my shoelace leaving me in awe of human kindness.
