It was cold, I didn’t want to wake up but 7 PAX called me out of my home. My brain may have frosted and forgot some details but I always look forward to the gloom for lessons in discipline and accountability. Opportunities to lead and be lead by this group of HIMS reflect help me to grow daily. I am continually thankful for the opportunities presented.
