Hey! Where Is My Wheelchair?

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting in from the BoggsMobile. I hope you all had a great week. My week was wonderful! The revival at Sterlington Holiness Tabernacle was so sweet.  The entire week the Lord met us and touched many people. I praise God for reviving me this week!

Our family always enjoys our visits with Pastor T.D. and Sis. Shea and family!!  We laughed about our past good times and made new memories. Thank you to our friends in Sterlington for your kindness and hospitality. We love you all!

Today the BoggMobile has carried us to Texas. We are looking forward to being in Gainesville, Texas and then we will move down to Sweeny, Texas. We are looking forward to seeing friends and family and good revivals this week. In Gainesville you will find us at House of Prayer Assembly on Sunday thru Wednesday. Then we will transition Sweeny, Texas at Full Gospel Lighthouse starting Friday night. 

Are you ready for another laughable “Odie Moment”?

I use a wheelchair for mobility when out of the BoggsMobile. My wheelchairs and I are tight we go everywhere together, well almost everywhere. 

I have been known before to forget to make sure my wheelchair is loaded in the car. I accept responsibility, it is my job to make sure I have my correct mobility devices with me. It usually happens when I transfer from the power chair to the car. Last week in Mississippi I had a dumb moment. 

Last week after riding in Pastor Tim Cauley’s vehicle I used my manual wheelchair to transfer to the Green Machine. I was waiting in the car for Mom and decided to use that moment to make an important phone call. I shut the car door to block the wind while I was on the phone. When Mom came to the car I was excited about the details of my phone call. I was discussing the phone call and forgot to remind Mom about the wheelchair, sitting right outside the door on my side of the car. 

We proceeded to drive 3O minutes into Mobile, Alabama to a couple stores. We arrived at our first stop and realized my wheelchair was still sitting in the church parking lot!  Oh my goodness I felt so dumb! All I could do was laugh at my silly mistake. 

I had to sit in the car at Burlington while Mom ran in quickly to pick up her needed items. Our next stop was Walmart and thankfully they had a manual wheelchair available for use. That chair was a tank and I was not able to self drive the chair so it was an adventure getting where we need to go. It also was a bumpy ride. I missed my chair!

When we pulled back up to the BoggsMobile I was happy to see my chariot waiting right where I left it parked. Since then I double and triple check to make sure the chair is loaded in the correct place. 

I want to say I am so thankful to those responsible for creating wheelchairs and mobility aids. They help make my life so much easier, especially lightweight wheelchairs, IF I remember to take them with me.

I sometimes get questions about my exact wheelchair. My current manual wheelchair is the second one I have had in this design. We love that it is lightweight, compact and comfortable. It is less than 20 lbs without the footrests. 

It is also very affordable compared to a lot of other chairs! I have purchased mine on Amazon. My chairs get daily use and my first chair this design lasted four years.  It has my stamp of approval. It the Ergo Flight Ultra Lightweight by Karman

Thanks for stopping by visiting with me. Maybe my craziness brought a smile to your face. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
