It makes my heart smile whenever I see Creighton smile like this. We’ve been skating together for the past five years. Hockey has given this bright, creative and kind-hearted young man on the Autism spectrum an outlet to connect with people.
However, sometimes depression makes Cray stay away from our crew and it becomes a battle to get him to come out. Exercise – moving the body – always helps elevate the spirits once those “feel-good” endorphins start flowing.
It’s Mental Health Awareness Month and today I send my love, respect and gratitude to Creighton for being a blessing in my life all year long.
