The power of this group is strong, and I’m not just talking about physically. These HIMs continue to show up and show out for one another even when we’re not on the turf fields. I’ve relied on the support of several HIMs through my own ups and downs. The hardest thing to do is admit you need help and then to ask for it. But when you do, there are no regrets. We’re all trying to get a little bit better. Grateful for this group.
