Got coins in my pocket and the baby on my hip.

Before now I never realized the security I place in having a vehicle. When I want to go somewhere I hop in the car and go. I think, "I'm out of eggs", or "coffee sounds good" and in just a few minutes I'm there. These past two weeks has shown me what it's like for people who don't have this option. Public transportation makes one uncomfortable. It's so...public. It's not your own, you didn't wash and vacuum it...nor can you wash and vacuum your fellow passangers. Going anywhere takes planning, extra time, and lots of walking. Nor could I carry A, diaper bag, stroller, grocery bags, and a coffee cup. Riding the bus takes a little more patience and a little more love.
