Farewell 2020

I bid you adieu 2020.
To say 2020 was rough would put it mildly.
As a society, we went through so many unexpected changes. There’s no denying this year ruined many things and seriously wreaked havoc in our world and personal lives.
We’ve been divided and come together.
We’ve lost and learned to love.
We learned to have patience.

Most of all we gained a sense of humor along the way. Because if we didn’t laugh most days we would’ve cried.
From empty shelves of toilet paper and paper towels like a storm was headed our way to homeschooling our kids.
We lost services for our kids but learned to manage.
We became hairdressers and DIYer’s.
But as this year comes to an end I look back and appreciate how much I learned and how grateful I am for the little things.

How much I appreciate bike rides, puzzles, and games of tag!

I’m not going to lie there were days we struggled and seemed like they would never end.
There were meltdowns they left me, and I know Collin feeling defeated.
During this, I found my TRIBE. I found a group of moms, dads, grandparents, and caregivers. Thank you, Kate and https://www.findingcoopersvoice.com/. I learned that I’m not alone on this journey. And most importantly I found myself along the way.
So here’s HOPE for 2021! Here’s HOPE you find your TRIBE no matter what that might be.
And don’t forget YOU DID IT!!! WE DID IT!!
