  • Are you up for a challenge?

    By ALICE NICHOLS, guest columnist

    One of the things that I am most grateful for in my life is the privilege of always having had work to do that feels “meaningful.” It is a great blessing to be able to end the day knowing that we have had the opportunity to do something that makes a positive difference in the life of another person or something that contributes to the greater good.  Meaningful work often is difficult, challenging and, at times, frustrating.
