That's What Friends Are For

Photo: Two boys double-riding to school. Lahore, Pakistan 2009.

"Lean on me, when you're not strong, and I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on, for it won't be long, 'til I'm going to need somebody to lean on."
- "Lean On Me" By Bill Withers

Ahhh, You've got a friend, Ron. As Deboshree says, simply beautiful. I love the shot of the boys on the bike. I remember riding like that with my little sister on the handlebars. We used to ride to the top of this huge hill by my house and time the street light. About halfway through the red we'd go barreling down the hill as fast as we could and shoot through the green light...LOL In hindsight, not the smartest of endeavors but we LOVED it! By the grace of God do we make it through our childhood!
Love and Hugs, Ron :)
Have a Happy, Happy New Year!

Happy New Year bro! If you are getting a bike, let me know. I can recommend something that's not sissy.

Are you looking for a friend? .. I don't get it.

Hey Ron, I noticed you're a blog friend / reader of Cheryl from Confession Of Twenty Something Years Old and me and a bunch of friends are trying to get her to be featured in 20SB for February. She's awesome, right?

So if you have an account in 20-Something Bloggers please help vote for her. All you do is visit here
and write "I vote for Cheryl from Confession Of Twenty-Something Years Old" or "I second this nomination" :D

thanks so much before, I hope you participate.
