Swagger aka wheel chair wagon...

We have been truly blessed in the fact that an organization on the east coast Mobility Freedom, Inc will be donating a new van (I could even choose a color preference and leather or cloth) that is adapted for wheelchairs! What does this mean for us...freedom for Ben and I to do things on our own! Once I am trained then Ben and I can go and do things together. Also, when we are settled back in WA (don't know that time yet) I can take him to all of his outpatient therapies and all the other appointments that we need to get to! The van is ready and we are just waiting on the paperwork to go through!
Did I mention that we are not paying a dime for this van!!! What a blessing from the Lord! HUGE, AMAZING BLESSING!!! I think the Lord has a sence of humor because He knows Ben and I discussed that we would never buy a mini!! I had to humble myself a bit but now I am ready to master driving the mini!
Watch out because we are going to be the party van swaggerin down the road!!

Katie, the Lord had to humble me before my Toyota Sienna for I said, "NEVER"! But, after spending a whole night with me arguing with Him, I woke up humble and ready to get a van. It is one of the best investments we have ever made. I LOVE MY VAN!!! You will love yours too, and it sounds like the price is right! :) This is a blessing, a true blessing!

I love it...I passed along the video to Zach because he feels the same way you did - we'll see if this changes his mind :) You'll have to crank those tunes in your new ride!

Katie!! I am so blessed to see Father's care for you. You will have such a wonderful feeling of freedom, getting to go out on your own. Hugs, Marion
