Laura's bike and I have been acquainted for a few months now but now with the Pan Mass Challenge only about 10 weeks away, we will enter into a very intimate relationship between bike and rider. She will be my sole ride until after the event. Only by forming a team will we finish.
Last night at 9:45 my youngest announced her beau was feeling a bit low and could I drive her over for a hug. I was on deck for picking up the middle daughter at the high school at 10:30 after play practice so I said sure and off we went. To be honest this was not the first time the request for a quick beau visit had been made and granted. He lives about 4 miles from us.
So we arrive and the young man presents me with these Mother's Day presents. And thanks me for being a great mom. I was so touched.
I have raised thousands of dollars towards eradicating cancer. Have rode in six Boston Brain Tumor Rides. Will ride in my first PMC this August, God willing. Was a Girl Scout leader for five years. Taught Religious Education for six years, and counting. I am a Rock Star as a freight broker; I truly love my job. I have a PhD. Have cycled thousands of miles with no horizon in sight. Authored a book.
But the best actionable 24/7 is being a mom. And then, second is being an aunt.
