Today is Tuesday, April 8th, and I made it safely to Navasota–yes, Texas–safe and sound!
We left the Best Western Hotel in La Grange and followed some quiet two lane roads, some busy, truck-filled two lane roads, and a country road. 70 miles in total, and at last, our Best Western in Navasota!! Today, the sky was a beautiful blue the whole way with lots of cattle ranches, horse farms, and a few pesky DOGS! My bike buddy today Sally had her whistle ready and a load voice. I did not have my whistle handy, and I can’t yell loudly so she kept us safe!!!
It’s interesting that people I meet say, “Are you having fun?” Fun, that’s a funny word and I am not sure where it finds it’s place on my journey. I find words that come to my mind are words like ‘purpose’, ‘awareness for a cause (Alzheimer’s)’, ‘challenging’, ‘personal introspection’, ‘personal reflection’, ‘cautious’, ‘grateful’ and ‘blessed’! Yes, there are fun moments with a nice group of women, laughs, shared stories, getting to know women who were strangers 5 weeks ago, but for me, it is the bigger picture and the deeper journey I hope to hold onto for a lifetime.
Thank you as always for your love and support I treasure it everyday!!
