The process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress is called resilience. It means being able to bounce back from difficult experiences. It seems that resilience is ordinary, not extraordinary. If we are strong in will and spirit, we are resilient every day. Resilience is not a trait that people have or do not have. It involves attitude, thoughts, behaviors, and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone.

A combination of factors contributes to resilience. Many studies show that the primary factor in resilience is having caring and supportive relationships within and outside the family. Relationships that create love and trust, provide role models and offer encouragement and reassurance help bolster a person's resilience. My husband is my support system. Every day his love and defense against persecution and evil assist me in building resilience. It is a tough world when combined with bullying and anger. We have to be resilient in our actions towards those who wish us harm and behave in a manner fitting a mature individual.

As I travel the end of the celebration of Thanksgiving with my husband and family, I am gracious in my appreciation of being able to move forward in strength and persistence to overcoming the forces of evil and travel my path of success.
