Wish 23- Take someone out who couldn't go otherwise

For lack of a better word, being housebound sucks. The whole world keeps rotating yet your world grinds to a complete halt. I am lucky to have 2 fantastic parents and the moment I am feeling better they will do what ever it takes to get me out, other housebound people aren't do lucky. Some are housebound just because they don't have the help or transport. When you have been stuck indoors for a long time a simple trip to a local park, garden centre or cafe can give your spirits a huge boost and getting to choose things in a supermarket rather than relying on others can be surprisingly enjoyable! My parents once took a neighbour to visit the lady who raised her, it was a pain to do as it was a long drive but the way the 2 ladies faces lit up when they saw each other is something my parents won't forget. Years ago we also took a very distant relative out of the nursing home he was living in for a drive and an Icecream, he smiled the entire time, anyone would of thought we had taken him on a round the world trip!

My wish is for people to help someone experience the joys of the outside world again.
