52 Blessings: Week 3

Week 3.  (Again, a week late.)


I gave David this tandem bike for Christmas this year, after much deliberation.  It has turned out to be one of the best blessings of my new year.   Our family has been all over town (literally) on our bikes and I have been so surprised by the bonding that is happening "out on the trail."  Not only are we enjoying, and truly appreciating, the gorgeous Arizona winter weather, we are sincerely enjoying each other's company.  No small potatoes.  The real magic of this blessing though, is happening between me and my husband as we pedal this tandem bicycle together.  A "oneness" has reemerged and as we ride together I feel my heart lifting and expanding in a way I had forgotten I could feel.   Our "bicycle built for two," a blessing indeed.
