As beautiful summer is reaching it's summit and the fall season swiftly approaches, I can take some time to reflect on the challenges I have had to over come within the past few months. I am eternally grateful for the reminder of love, support and positivity from friends and family in my life whom I can always lean on in times of crisis. Although a summer vacation did not turn out how I'd hoped with a personal health scare that shifted my focus and altered my world, I am glad to be in recovery both physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. And just as I have, I also know, many of you have also had to overcome challenges in this unprecedented time as well. Let us remember that we are survivors and every breath we take is an opportunity at life. Let us not take it for granted.
