Besides being a little light headed I finally feel back to normal physically after chemo. Yesterday my wife and I spend the day at a friends lake house and it was very peaceful. The best memory we have of that trip was traveling home. We had just left the lake house and we were on the back roads just off of the main highway. We were riding on our motorcycle and we slowly approached several Amish children who were walking with their horse and buggy and picking up trash on the side of the road. I slowed down the motorcycle and almost stopped completely because the children were waving at us and smiling and it seemed like they wanted to get to know us. It was a change to see kids that didn't recognize me from American Idol. As we continued to stare at them they continued to stare back. We quickly realized they were more surprised to see us on a motorcycle than we were of seeing them walking behind a horse. We immediately felt like we were traveling back in time from a time machine and that these children had never looked at a motorcycle. We came back from the future.
Most importantly, we had a great time relaxing on the side of the lake and watching the sunset. I am thankful that the Lord has slowed my life down. It became too easy for me to forget about the sunset.
