I'm currently taking an online "life skills" class from BYU Idaho, and this week the lesson was on work. As I read this week's material and worked on the assignment I had a good opportunity to reflect on the past few years of my life, the progression I've made, and the things I still need to work on. The small required assignment inspired me and I decided to create a blog post out of it.
I just want to take a minute to give a shout out to American Heritage school, and the faculty, teachers, and students who left hand prints on my heart. I also want to give a shout out to my amazing parents, Bob and Leanne Dalton, for teaching me the value of hard work, and never giving up on me no matter how difficult the circumstances.
To my chronically ill friends, my message to you this week would be to keep working hard through this tough journey. Even if all you can do on some days is say a prayer, do it! The effort you put into your life, even if it seems small, will bless you in the eternities. I hope the best for all of my chronic illness community, and to everyone who is struggling in any way this week! Keep working! Keep taking it one step at a time!
