When the bottom fell out of our lives almost five years ago, I wish someone had been there to tell me everything would turn out okay. Hindsight is a beautiful thing. Then again, hitting the deck was what it took to force us to examine where we were in life and where we definitely weren’t.

Truthfully, if someone had told us all would be well, we might never have embarked on what has been the most significant journey of our lives. In crisis mode, my husband Malcolm and I rediscovered perseverance and redefined what success means to us. Sounds profound, doesn’t it? I promise it isn’t.
