There we were, my good friend, sister and cousin, flying home from a relaxing girls weekend in Florida. The entire flight was turbulent and not very enjoyable like most of my flights. About half and hour before we are due to land, the pilot announces that the storms in Atlantic City are so severe, we are going to circle until they pass, but not to worry, ” we have plenty of gas.” That alone made us a bit uneasy, but we had to leave this in the hands of professionals.

Today I was doing my normal gym routine, and got caught up thinking about someone who inspires me. A very close friend of mine had been through a double mastectomy over the past 10-15 years and loves life to the fullest every waking moment. Whenever I am around her I feel inspired that she can grasp every waking moment with a positive smile and something nice to say about her day or someone around her. She never fails me.
