Day 6: I am grateful for my bike!

I am grateful for my bike!

For all the bike rides I have enjoyed throughout my life.  For how bicycling helped restore my strength and balance. For all the fun, smooth roads, fresh air, freedom felt…for all the exercise, peace, joy and good times bike riding has brought me.

I love bicycling!

A bicycle is the vehicle for long thoughts…for novelists and poets!

“The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets.” — Christopher Morley

It’s been said that it’s impossible to ride a bike and be sad.

Bicycling brings out the kid in all of us.

When was the last time you enjoyed a bike ride?

  1. I am so sorry to read you broke another toe; been there, done that: OUCH! Special prayers for you to have speedy healing, Debra! I hear you & understand; reading what you write tells how hard you continually work on your health. Think of the progress you have made to this point. You are a survivor! We may be each day; but we are wiser from learning from our experiences! We are also encouraged by you everyday!

    We don’t have bikes; but our cars are sure wonderful to have, for which we are very grateful!

    • haha, I almost did a post with my feet, thankful for the few toes I HAVEN’T broken! Yes, I think you are right: We survive one day at a time. Cars are good! They both have their merits, don’t they 🙂

  2. A wonderful way to travel. I am enjoying your post, you are so creative that it is another plus to your writing. I’m so happy your feeling so much better.

    • Thanks, Judy. I never had to work so hard on my health! It’s been endless this past decade…and tonight I broke another toe! That always sets me back. Oh, well, at least I’m used to it and know what to expect. Thank you for keeping me lifted up!

Please share your thoughts.
