I Have A Handicap That My Husband Doesn't See.

I have a slight handicap in my leg. After an injury I sustained I lost the use of one of my legs. This put me in a wheelchair, eventually. I have been married to the same wonderful man for the past 14 years, and he says that when he looks at me he doesn't see a handicap. He says he sees the girl he married. Pretty and full of life. When I first started to get the weakness in the leg prior to the total loss I would try to hide the lessening of the strength I was feeling. I was so afraid that I wasn't living up to what he had when he originally married me. It took some convincing and time to come to the realization that there is more to me then just one leg. This is something that he saw all along. I am so grateful, and thank God that I was blessed to have him. He has been my rock, my strength and makes me happy to be alive everyday. The loss of my leg wouldn't compare to the pain I would feel at the loss of my husband.
He has made my world completely accessible to me. My home, although it is a two story is totally accessible. And when I go out in public I have a mobility scooter to get around on. Actually, I have 4 scooters. Each one serves a different purpose. One is even set up to go off roading so I wont miss out on the great outdoors...:) I have one for upstairs and one for downstairs and one for shopping. All of the things he has done for me don't even come close to compare with how much he makes me feel loved and cherished. He is such a strong man, and a great father. I don't know how I was so blessed, but I am thankful I am.
