I have to admit that even though I knew this was a first worth sharing widely with family, friends, colleagues and my network near and far, I wasn’t prepared for the reaction.

And while yes, Monday was amazing because of the article itself, it was made infinitely more so by the love and support that was positively unavoidable the entire day.

I’m thankful to have people in my life that do such things. I hope in some small way, I’ve either done so for them at some point or will have the opportunity to do so soon.
