Best Part

The best part of the ride was coming across this lovely lemonade stand not 7 miles from our house. Colin, age 7, made lemonade from fresh lemons and simple syrup. Made it the night before do it would be cold. It was delicious.

Last week in Middletown Springs VT I shared a bench and a scratch ticket with Don. An older gentleman who has lived his whole life in Vermont. Yesterday I was blessed to meet Colin and his mom Mary.

I could have sped by. I really was looking forward to getting home after close to six hours in the saddle climbing through over 5000 ft of elevation. But God puts people in our path and ten minutes of time, two glasses of lemonade, blessed us all at that stand yesterday just shy of noon. I will never forget them.
