I hadn't heard of that term until today. What is a pocket rider, you might ask? Loosely, it's someone who can't be with you in person, but is with you in spirit, and are thinking of you.
Say, for example, I'm having a bad day. I text a friend and ask her to be my pocket rider. She could say, "sure!" and will proceed to "hop in my pocket".
Corny as it sounds, it basically means you're never alone.
This may sound rather strange, but I believe that love has no physical perimeters, like space and time. Of course, someone can love you from near, or far away. During a particularly hard time, they can be "with" you too. Just thinking or praying for you.
It's nice to know you have a pocket rider, or a few.
Strangely comforting, I think.
Is that weird?
