Kendall’s Letter

Mountainside M Logo By Mountainside

As I sat at my grandparent’s house completely stuffed after a Thanksgiving feast, I was not only stuffed with turkey and mashed potatoes, but I was filled with gratitude. I wish I could say I feel this way all of the time, but for me, it comes in sporadic bursts and this was one of those moments that I always cherish.

I have so much love in my life today, and the opportunity to truly connect with family, friends, and each and every one of you is so very important. The conversation, laughter, and friendship I share with all of you ignite a spark in my soul every day. That very spark helps fuel me to continue on this road of recovery, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

Beginning in January, I would like to invite all of you to write introduction letters for the newsletter each month. This is an opportunity to share your creativity, strength, and inspiration with the entire alumni family. By sharing your stories, life lessons, and what has worked for you throughout your recovery journey, you can have a meaningful impact on someone else’s recovery. With a new year, there is change, growth, and new beginnings, and I am so excited for you to all to help me shape our alumni newsletter.

I know that you are all such talented, creative spirits. If you feel called to write, please reach out to me. I hope you all have an amazing and safe holiday!
