Story #2.... I've upgraded my bicycle by downgrading the year. For the past year or so I've been commuting to and from work (every now and then) on my 7 speed Schwinn Cruiser. However this morning I came into work on a Schwinn Tempo Roadbike. Man, what a difference! Thanks to my Father-in-law, my ride to work was cut down by at least 10 minutes. This bike has seen it all too - rode the mountains of Europe and the amateur Tour de France when it was in its prime. My Father-in-law looked at my Schwinn and then looked at his and said, "Yup. Mine is one of the last good bikes Schwinn ever made." ....I agree.

April is the month of birthdays in my family (one more birthday post tomorrow!)... But today is all about my mom! She is an amazing woman & has taught me more than she could ever know. I hope that everyone has a mom (or surrogate mom) in their lives like I was blessed to have. Through adversity and trials she has remained a woman of peace and prayer. Happy Birthday Mom. :)
