I have missed so much being unhealthy, out of shape and scared. The kids had such a great time watching mom venture out, wobbly and uncertain on the bike. They were encouraging me and of course laughing at me a bit. It was so great to have this time together to enjoy one of the most beautiful days God has given us outside in it. Off the couch, out in the sun and the breeze. Out smelling the flowers.
I'm not going to say it was easy and all idyllic. There was lots of uphill and the whole stopping and starting is still difficult and awkward but I'm not scared to try anymore. I actually did better than Liberty. With her little bike and legs she struggled up the hills. But how can she stop when her mother is doing it?
