I was in a car accident on January 12, 2009. You probably already knew that. I just passed the six month mark last week. It is hard to believe it was that long ago!

On January 20th, a handicap parking permit was issued for me. I remembered looking at the date on the tag...July...JULY! No way am I going to need a handicap parking tag in July. By July I will be back to bopping in and out of stores, restaurants, businesses, etc.

It's July. Today the handicap parking permit expired.

While I am not "bopping" anywhere. I do go wherever I want to go. It is amazing to me that I get around well and can continue on after such a trauma. The wheel chair and walker are long gone.

I am blessed to be able to throw that placard away today and not need to request a renewal!

(Although I will miss snagging those close parking spots!)

Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog and being so sweet about my nasty attitude. :) I don't know all the details of your accident but I'm sure glad you're done with that sticker. Any chance you can change that little 7 to a 9 and mail it up to Oregon...I sure could use a break on grocery day!

All kidding aside - glad you're healing nicely. Good work!

Congrats on working so hard to get your mobility back; what a great milestone!

And also, good for you for surrendering it; too many folks try to milk those things indefinitely.
