Circle of Trust – Alliance’s birthday reflection

Birthdays are a time to reflect.    This year marks the anniversary of  Covid.   Of course it was a difficult year personally, and a complicated, awful year for our country and the world.    I feel like if I am lucky enough to make it to old age in a rocking chair, when I reflect on this year, I will be able to say that I made the most of it.    I met a bunch of new guys and worked hard physically to push myself to get into the best shape of my life.   For that, and to all of you, I am grateful.
