Trish, you ask about our definition of resilience. The old country music song, “Give Me One More Shot” comes to mind. We all go through loss and defeat and failure. Often, these experiences create feelings of grief, fear, uncertainty, and doubt. The ability to bounce back and get back in the game is my way of thinking about resilience. Below, I describe my son’s reliance after his surgery. For me, that ability to bounce back comes from my faith and hope that things will get better. As our author demonstrates, that is a process and not an event.
