When the sun shines, it brings out the best of who people are limited in mobility. Much like the flowers, blooming people come out to enjoy the warmth of spring. People and animals alike are happier and friendlier.
People smile more and say Hello. It seems to me that during the winter people tend to be gloomy and stay inside. Now as the weather warms and the sun shines, people are coming out and talking to each other more, not to mention really feeling the happiness the warm weather brings.
People are in their gardens or hanging plants just to see the color it brings to their lives.
This is when we all show what the warmer weather means to our quality of life, particularly those of us with physical limitations. Most people who don’t know what it is like to live with a disability think "Ah it's only spring". But people with disabilities find it exponentially easier to get out of the house and enjoy life.
It’s the time of year we can enjoy ourselves and do the same things as the non-disabled, by going outside and relishing in the weather the way we did before becoming disabled.
For those who have always been disabled, it is a newfound freedom we don't have during the cold and treacherous winter months.
So, when the sun shines it also brightens up the way we feel. Here's to summer and feeling more free!
