A note from Jennifer Lachermeier,
As I try to contemplate what to write to you all I reflect on a recent talk I watched from Brene’ Brown. Now, in her speech Brene’ quoted Teddy Roosevelt and “Daring Greatly”. She also talked about gratefulness for what you have, what we have. Say that again. What- We- Have. So much had been taken from us the past 3 years. Did we ever stop and be grateful for what we still had? I know personally, I struggled with that. Seeing everyone in person on February 2nd put the wind back in my sails. It lit a fire under me that I haven’t felt the warmth of in at least 2 years if not more. Here on the MAPA board, we are going to work diligently to put together the very best year of IN PERSON sessions for all of you to attend. We are so grateful for every one of our members and we thank you from the very bottom of our hearts!
