I used to enjoy going to church to be with the people. The sense of community and seeing familiar faces. Thinking back on it I believe that the pews were too uncomfortable to sit there for a full hour. Sometimes I would leave because the church was so full and nobody would give up their seat for this person with an invisible disability.

I feel now that my spirit is supported and strengthened by the quiet moments of reflection, the love of friends and family and the ability to get out to marvel at the nature around me.

I will accompany friends or family to their place of worship occasionally now. Easier when they are with me to help me to take care. True community in action, right?
