“Untitled” because I can’t think of an appropriate title.
I ride my bike with my younger daughter frequently. In two days, she will be a second grader.
This morning we recommenced our morning ritual of riding our bikes to the Crozet Mudhouse, a pit stop on the path to Crozet Elementary.
Upon our return home, we stopped for a bit of exploration and she seized the opportunity to cut me to the quick:
“I wish I could stay 7 forever, and you could stay 35. Because today is just perfect.”
With that, she got on her bike and started by herself, a skill she mastered two days ago. And she said,
“Come on Daddy!”
And I followed.
Lesson of the day:
Live life every day. You don’t stay young forever. And these moments must be appreciated.
