Living with a chronic disease, we have to reach daily to our inner strength for a simple task that a healthy person takes for granted. When I do accomplish a milestone, it means far more to me than to a normal person. It's similar to having your first job as a teenager, when you bought something with money that you had earned, it meant so much more to you because you did it on your own.
The weather has been dreary and cold here, I haven't been riding much lately. I have been researching old bridges and other points of interest that I would like to ride to in 2011, and have some interesting prospects. Just need some constant warm weather to roll back in. I'm getting the helmet cam set back up so I can shoot some video of our rides in the future. Hopefully, I'll have enough good footage to put a few clips together and post here next year.
As the holiday season is upon us, we usually find ourselves reflecting on the past year and on those who have shared our joys and sorrows. Thank you for your friendship. I wish you and your families a Merry Christmas (yes, I still say Christmas ... not Happy Holidays) and I hope that 2011 will be better for all of us.
