This past year has been filled with so many amazing things and also some setbacks. It’s been a trying year when it comes to my health. Last year I had a liver resection and was miraculously better after 4 weeks and back to working out at 6 weeks. The fact that is wasn’t cancer was an even bigger praise! But this year, I’ve had stupid stuff happen to my health. Dropped a 30 pound weight on my foot in March and had a bone bruise for 3 weeks. Then in June my calf muscle tore.

My mentor and I had a long conversation the other day about how to respond to my friends’ trials. I truly haven’t had the words to encourage this person. My sweet 81 year-old mentor referred me to the article below adding a sixth bullet. Her encouragement for my friend ended up encouraging me.
