Surf Therapy is Awesome! I found a heart-shaped rock with many stones on it during my mindful walk on the beach. The rock reminded me to accept the loss of my granddaughter! But to also remember the ones who are still with us. It taught me to stay in the present! And for that, I thank Jody and Will for sharing surf therapy with this community
