#30daysofbiking Day 14: I get by with a lot of help from my friends

End of a day I am glad to see over with and behind me.

I have four wonderful, inspiring, intelligent, beautiful, amazing sons.  If I have left a small mark on the world, it is only through them.  When someone takes them for granted, mis-treats them – especially an adult who knows better – well, my fangs come out.  And that’s all I am going to say right now.

During the mess that was today, I can only say I got by with a lot of help from my friends.  I include my bicycle in that group … the brief ride I managed to take today cleared my head, calmed me down, reminded me to breathe.  Anyone who rides knows the sanity-inducing power of pedaling, the simple sensation of moving forward, the meditative act of the inhale and the exhale.   The rhythm.

Feeling a little more peaceful as the sun sets.  Grateful for friends.
