My big birthday gift from Drake was setting my bicycle up to be fit for two-a rider and a pint-sized passenger. He dusted off and outfitted my old mountain bike with a child safety seat and equipped it with helmets for both adventurers, particularly the wee little one.
Requesting this gift was an important step for me.
I have wanted to go biking, but hated the idea that I didn’t need a bike trailer for both my kiddos; a simple bike seat for only one would suffice. Somehow, equipping my bicycle in this way felt like a reflection that life goes on-without Jud.
I don’t want life to go on without Jud…
But I know it must.
Yet, as I rode my bike around town this week, the wind brushing my face and my little ladybug seated behind me, I felt replete with vitality and glad I had taken a step forward.
