In gentle and various ways help aids have been incorporated into our lifestyle. The latest was a surround aid on the toilet. It is an aid to help with standing rather than reliance on the wall or the seat to help me (particularly) unravel my rather long legs.
It looks and feels a bit like being in a throne chair. There are even facilities for storing of magazines. Thankfully I do not spend much time here. I have not stopped yet long enough to read anything.
When our youngest grandchildren came for a visit it was the remark from the four year old which made me think.. He said, ‘Gran I love this toilet. Now, I can hang on and I’m not afraid of falling in’. This highlighted to me the value of help and aids that are cross generational. From my lofty older position it is hard to remember when toilets indeed were scary places when maybe they were waiting to draw you in and down.
It’s often the little insignificant moments in life which bring to us memory.
Today is a new day and I’ll leave this thought from Oswald Chambers.
You do not know what you are going to do: the only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing……It is this attitude that keeps you in perpetual wonder ……you do not know what God is going to do next.
Blessings and Love!
