I still wonder how she came into my life.
She is a whirlwind of smile and energy.
She showed up this morning to ride with her bike. And a gift for me. Pink John Deere gardening gloves. They can also be used for snake wrangling.
We loaded bikes on the rack and drove off to a relatively nearby path. Biked 14 miles. Laughed so hard reaching our halfway point, where they had a museum, and a kids' craft station. She made an owl out of paper plates. And then she tossed the only other crafty item on the table my way: a construction paper snake.
I laughed so hard.
Can't wait to ride again. I missed my bike. And that kind of laughter. And how good it feels to be that sore and sweaty.
