mom's bike

People neglect the importance and blessing that is transportation. Planes, trains, automobiles- we all take for granted. Yet many people who have dreams- bigger and better dreams- have no way of getting to those dreams. Except for on a bicycle. A few months before my birth, my mother made a choice. To give me the best life that she could. Being single and barely an adult, she struck out to make a life for soon-to-be the both of us. The only problem was that she had no transportation. Her parents were too poor at the time to help afford her a car. But she had two wheels and a dream. Everyday, she rode an old beat-up bike to town looking for a job. When she finally found one, she continued to ride that bike until the day I was born. That bike helped me get to where I am at.
