So the last few days have been pretty rough emotionally, to say the least. I was feeling beat up, drained and down right hurt.

I have always felt like my team member who have joined me on this journey are like my family. They may be all across the United States (and beyond) but we bond daily in our discussions and chatter.

So, out of the blue today I received a private message on Facebook from one of my team. She and I have never met in person but she sent me a message simply asking me if I was OK! She went on to say she could tell from a post I had made that I was not myself and, even though she and her family have been sick for a few days, she took time from her day and her own ailments just to check on me.
