As hot as it has been this summer, the thought of jumping into an ice cold pool of water sounds refreshing…until you actually do it. Then it’s more of a shock.

Last Sunday was Father’s Day, and Friday marks the second anniversary of my own father’s passing, so I’ve been thinking a lot the last few days about things like legacy, family, grieving, and wellness.
