As I was floating on a bright pink raft on Lake Powell's clear waters, I took a breath of fresh air and closed my eyes.

Life changing moments can happen to anyone at any given time during their lifetime. From a tragic accident to crossing the finish line of a marathon.

My feet sank deep into the gritty, warm sand forming to every minute crevice as the ocean’s tides crept slowly forward. Its touch was wintry and met me like frozen ice cream on a scorching summer day. The sky was...Tags:
