Wonderfully Blessed Wednesday

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”

    Now I am hungry and I want them to open my bike trail. This is a good message to hear today. Thanks Mary.

      I want to get back to Arlington to the best Huevos Rancheros I’ve ever had…Silver Diner. They have to “open” your bike trails. I must be blessed that I have so many blacktopped bike paths that I can use all year around…even in winter.

        You are blessed. I only have one close by, and it’s always closed Nov-Apr and April turns into June when Eglets hatch.

        If I ever move to another city (or state) I would have to ensure there were bike paths available.

        Ironically, Pittsburgh is said to be very bike friendly. I grew up there and pedaled my butt off on those hills. If I ever go back for s long stay, maybe I’ll take my bike.

        Good idea! Did you know Friday is “Ride Your Bike to Work” Day? I’m contemplating…

      • Dan Antion says:

        1) I have to take a coworker to the airport on the way home. 2) There’s no good way for me to get into Hartford anywhere near rush hour. The road through the north-end actually has a combination bike/bus lane…I kid you not.

      • bikerchick57 says:

        There’s no way I would ride the bus/bike lane. Even the sole bike lanes in the city are not my cup of tea. If it wasn’t for the bike path, I would not be biking to work. It’s just too dangerous.

    How like you, M-J ! 🙂 The positive looms large: the simple things have great significance. I’m not going to say that Queen Ziva’s expression, coupled with His Lordship Gibbs’ look of incredulity, cracked me up or anything … but I did give a loud bark of laughter that caused Lui Stringer to rush back to bed. 😀

    Ahh the contentment. The bike trail is great, and the food and drink also.
    On another note and speaking of Gibbs and Ziva… did you watch Tony’s last night on NCIS?

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I just watched it this morning and was trying very hard not to bawl. Not exactly the ending I had hoped for, but the writers always keep me guessing and that’s probably the second best ending that could have happened. There was joy wrapped in with the sadness. NCIS will always be my favorite TV show. Ever.

      • LB says:

        My favorite, too!! In fact, I’m watching an NCIS marathon while catching up on blogging. Sniff …
