Early Introductions



I love riding my motorcycle. It's kinda like a healthy way to "run away" for a little while. Today, being so warm and sunny, was a perfect day. Patrick came home and offered, and it didn't take much convincing! Sure, it was a little cooler than summer riding, but it was incredible! There is such a free feeling, and I usually find myself talking to God. It's easy to remember to thank Him for His creation when you have an unobstructed view! Of course, when I stopped for gas and the bike wouldn't start again, it was also an opportunity for another kind of prayer...

Seriously, I think riding a motorcycle is one of my favorite releases. I cannot: listen to the radio, talk on a cell phone, hear the cell phone, turn on the TV. All I can do is pray, sing, or enjoy the sound of the wind outside my helmet. When I came back I was calm, refreshed, and ready to spend time with my favorite husband and daughter!

So does it beat sleeping?

No, it's fulfilling in another way altogether - I find peace and recharge my batteries while riding even at times when I'm either not tired enough to sleep or don't want to take a nap. Besides, it's a total rush which you can't get from sleeping ;-p!!!!

Keep your motorcycles (I'd be scared I wouldn't be able to stop and crash spectacularly) I'll stay with my horses (at least when they don't stop it's not my fault AND there's at least something with some level of intelligence choosing what happens... lol
