Everyone learns to pitch in

On the weekend we move in with friends who are putting an addition on their home. My girls babysit while the adults work the construction crew. This weekend the adults were treated to lunch on Sunday. What a blessing to be able to come in and eat without the prep work.

We all need joists.

Evenly spaced to support us in life. Imagine in we didn't have them. We would end up in the basement.

What does a warrior look like?

Like this woman. First ride on her street bike and she takes on the toughest hill for miles. She is teaching me to take life on, head on. We had a summit welcoming committee of turkeys. Very cool.

What is your hour worth?

Yesterday I drove to my daughter's college so we could have a chat over a frozen yogurt. Her choice: coffee or yogurt. Good choice.

We chatted for an hour. Catching up. Classes. Extracurricular activities. Apartment life. Vacation plans. Money. Longterm plans.

We text pretty much everyday. I get the day to day. But still I need the face to face. Maybe she does too. She knows I have her back. She lets me hug and kiss her in public, on the street outside her apartment. Greeting hello and saying a long good bye.

And as I drove back home I realized I could do a commercial. One of those touch the heart ones where the take home message is: I would pay absolutely anything to have one hour, one more hour, with the one I love.

Selfie from morning ride

Something about myself: My brain is not wired for insults and jabs. They don't process when delivered to me and I am unable to formulate a response.

Handicap or blessing?
