One can recover academically, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. I myself happen to be in the midst of 4 out of 5 of the listed areas right now. I love this word because it is so full of hope and life. When you go through a trying time or event and you begin to recover or you hear the potential for recovery it can bring real tears of joy to the brims of you eyes (like it’s doing to me right now). This word and all it encompasses is very dear to me, as I am familiar with it in incredibly deep rooted ways. When I hear it I can’t help but smile and know that my story isn’t over, nor has it peaked.
