2020 was hard, I think we can all agree on that. There was so much grieving - for the loss of normalcy, gatherings, connections, hugs, concerts, play dates, kindergarten, family visits, vacations, loved ones. But also, there was gratitude. Because once life was stripped of all that we once thought we needed to make it full, we found new ways to love and laugh, to connect and feel whole. Grief, gratitude ... and growth. Perhaps 2020 was the year that forced many of us to shed old leaves and make space for new growth.
