NMS: Great work this morning, field trips are always fun. Temp felt great at the beginning but the humidity struck back with a serious vengeance. Good sharing about the need for vulnerability and compassion in our friendships. Strength is not the absence of weakness, but the capacity to admit weakness and having the kind of friends who will hold you up and make you better.
