Touching Story

I'm not one of those mushy types who forwards 'inspirational' messages but I must say this one is touching....


The awesome power of a wife's love:



A very old man lay dying in his bed. In death's doorway, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookie wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed.
Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom,
and with monumental effort forced himself down the stairs, gripping the railing with both hands.

With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven!

There, spread out on newspapers on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies.

Was it heaven?

Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted wife,
seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

Mustering a great final effort he threw himself toward the table.
The aged and withered hand, shaking, made its way to a cookie
at the edge of the table......




where it was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife.




"Stay out of those, they're for the funeral!"

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!

I am so glad I didn't have a drink in my mouth at the time. I would have had to clean up my monitors.

"Why do I ride?"
