You Made My Day

Posted on Thu, Nov 3, 2011 at 3:01 PM

I have MS (I know big whoop). However, over the past year or so, my ability is not perfect (whatever). But I continue to walk. And this is where the story starts.

The other day I was walking (with my Nordic Poles - love them) from the Halifax Infirmary to the IWK (I know what am I bitching about, but for me it was like running 10 full marathons). Needless to say, by the time I arrived at the corner of Spring Garden and Summer - my legs had had it. I tripped and fell (oops). Nothing untoward, but fell. I got up and waited for the lights to change to walk across the street. I did with a bit more difficulty. AND THEN out of the blue behind me, I heard "Be proud of yourself." It was from a guy in a car that was turning.

I cried the rest of the way.

You made my day. Thank you. —My "Shout Out" Guy
