While the past two and a half (2 1/2) years immediately conjures words like “challenge”, “hardship”, and “crisis”, there are lessons to be learned that offer optimism, and important perspective as we embark on the future. As human beings we have a spirit that is capable of withstanding stress, and we are learning how to adapt and adjust.
