Ira, August 2014

Hello John,
Thank you so much for everything! But, saying something as simple as that doesn’t really  begin to cut it.  You have given me such a gift.  Since our last lesson, one  week ago today, I have gone swimming every opportunity I have had (including Wednesday after work and Sunday morning).  I am swimming laps, playing with my float and exploring my balance and how my body operates under the water.  I am challenging myself with new tasks each day and thanks to you, I feel confident and safe while doing so.  Every day gets better and better and better and better!  Know that I am taking my time (in for the long haul with this one!), but here are the words I haven’t said for over two decades: I’m a swimmer!

It has been so exciting to swim with my husband and I have to tell you, words can’t describe what it was like seeing the look in his eyes when I made it from one end of the pool to the other by myself.  My body already feels better and I can’t wait to use it as a fitness tool.  After swimming in a public pool for the first time without you right there . . . I decided to share my story and post a 15-second video of my freestyle stroke on Facebook.   It was a big move for me personally to publicly “come out” as someone who couldn’t swim before I met you and people really connected to it.  I received over 200 “likes” and 60+ comments in one day!  It amazes me how many people share my same fears and after working with you, I have been telling everyone I know about it in hopes that my story may inspire others to achieve the breakthrough that I accomplished!

You are truly a inspiration and my life will never be the same again!
