Fantastic!! Enjoy those moments, I desperately wish my mom would still ride with me though I have no doubt she'd whoop me in any event we chose to compete against one another in lol! She had some injuries many years ago and hasn't gotten back in the saddle, very disappointing for me because she really, really knows her stuff and I would love to see her put it to use instead of picking her brain via conversation :(
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
