I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to run away from your problems, but on this particular day, I was having a bad day...and me and Had got in a fight over something dumb. I needed to just get away for a little bit. So I grabbed this little light in my life, and we went for a bike ride. We rode and rode. For miles and miles.
He's the best little biking partner. He seems to just soak up the surroundings and stare at everything in awe. I feel that way too when I'm out in nature. I love this particular bike path because it is so lush and green, and I feel close to the Savior when I'm in places like this.
We stopped at this overlook and watched for alligators. We took pics, and threw rocks in the water. I just felt so lucky to be a mom. To live in this beautiful world. To have a husband that cares about me. I know life isn't always gonna be perfect, and there's gonna be ups and downs, but I am grateful for what I have, and for the chance I had to get away for a minute to help me put things in perspective.
