Beautiful Day


I had no idea what time it was when we mounted our bikes this past weekend for a family ride through town because, quite frankly, it didn't matter. It had been awhile since we had no where to be, no one expecting our presence at any kind of gathering. I love feeling wanted and having goals to accomplish but the novelty of an unscheduled afternoon proved deliciously refreshing. "Be still," I reminded myself as the children stopped to ogle at a puppy, "This day, your life, is beautiful."
