But what hasn’t changed are the hearts of the people I work with every day, and that was reinforced for me again in the last few weeks.
Isn't it funny how much bigger everything seemed when you were a kid? I recently had the chance to revisit the house I grew up in as a child – the same house my family lost when I was just 15 years old. Walking inside again all these years later, I was stunned at how small it felt. In my memories, through my eyes as a child, everything seemed so much bigger.
