I finally turned 15 years old! I wasn’t sure what the day would bring, so I rolled out of bed with more enthusiasm than usual to prepare for school and… my birthday party!
I floated through my classes as if in a dream and let my mind wander, thinking about all of the possible birthday surprises. When I got home, I was greeted by a brand new red motorbike.
My dad and I have been riding mountain bikes and motorbikes together for as long as I can remember, but before this bike, I had never been able to ride beside my father as an equal. But getting my own bike was that turning point. It was a coming of age gift, and my father’s acknowledgment that I was growing up.
The weekend after my birthday my dad and I took our bikes to a place where we could ride. That day I learned a lot in between the riding and falling and even some breaking of motorbike parts. I can still remember the look on my dad’s face the first time I started up my bike. Since then we have shared something not many fathers and daughters are lucky enough to have. I will be forever grateful for the bond between my dad and me, and it is no surprise he feels the same way about me.
