What love has wrought

Gary Presley, the author of Seven Wheelchairs: A Life Beyond Polio, writes about meeting and marrying his wife in this piece. He candidly talks about issues of physical dependence, expectations and feeling as if he is "a chore, an obligation", as well as the day she brought him a ring and simply said "See if it fits". And he writes about what love has wrought.

Gary Presley's book can be purchased at Amazon.

The links seems to be broken...can't wait for you to repost it, although I guess I could Google it. ;-) Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Amy,
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. The article now appears in the NY Times, so I put up a new link!
