This year I had the privilege of being a counselor at a camp for kids with juvenile arthritis. It was the top two most rewarding experiences in my life to date. To see a group of kids be in an environment where they could feel normal and forget about their woes was nothing short of great, but seeing the kids grow before my eyes was simply unbelievable. I took this opportunity to heart and made it a goal to offer guidance and empower the 5 young individuals to make the right choices under my watch.
There were laughs, there was yelling, there were tears, at times feelings of defeat. But overall, feelings of pride and joy ruled our cabin group.
How do you turn a band of misfits into a rocking unit? Compassion + Respect + Unity
This was an experience I will never forget and one that I hope to build upon for the future... #GRATITUDE
