Sweet Sunday

1 Comment

No better way to start a Sunday than an early morning ride. And by early morning I headed out at about 6 am to the gas station first because I felt like more than just a short drive. Summer morning 70 degrees and the top down, what is not to like.

Plus the roads are a pleasure to drive on in the early morning even if I do have to share with cyclists. Because like them I like the streets where the guardrails are corn stalks.

Today I also got to be with family and hold my grandson for just the second time and celebrate my Son’s birthday coming up this week. So it was a peach of a day. Looking into a newborn’s eyes, the softness of their skin, and squeeze of those tiny fingers and I’m in love all over again.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The world is so interested in instant gratification that the patience to wait for something meaningful to develop is impossible.
  • Some events cause you to prioritize things in life differently.
  • Did you notice how the phrase “Certified pre-owned vehicle” has replaced “Used Car?” And I imagine you get the pleasure of paying more for that change.
  • A great day bookend by disappointments.
