My sweet boy is 10 months old today. December has been filled with a whirlwind of emotion, but the word that keeps coming to mind is resilience. I continuously see it all around me. In this little one, my community, my husband, those who have lost their homes, my mommy friends, local businesses, my neighborhood, our firefighters, and city. I am so proud to be part of this town. I have already witnessed beauty coming from ashes. And I know that from these ashes we will rise.
