“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything."Riders in The Ride to Defeat ALS - July 13, 2013

I was the kind of person who thought I could endure anything alone and then ALS showed up! I have had the opportunity to learn many lessons during this time of trial. One lesson is that life is a whole lot easier when we don't go through it alone. Also, in times of trial, God gives us blessings but sometimes we must look for them. Fortunately, I didn't have to look hard to recognize God's gift in all the wonderful people placed in our lives to help us through this time. It is an amazing feeling to be surrounded by supporters wherever we turn. We would never have had the opportunity to feel so feel so loved and supported were it not for this awful disease. This journey has shown me that one's success should not be measured by career, position or financial status but, rather, by the depth of the relationships one has cultivated over the course of a lifetime.
