2020. What a year it has been. I’m fairly certain as I was sitting myself down to write out my goals and plans for the new year I did not include living through a global health crisis or having to adjust to stay home orders. I also don’t think I planned on budgeting my time around when I would be able to find toilet paper in the stores. I will be honest. I had big hopes and dreams for this year. We were beginning to get ourselves established with the local homeschool group, the kids were getting active and involved in community activities, and I was looking forward to finding ways to get involved in the community I had grown up in as well.
And then March came. I think we may resort to calling this the year that must not be named. The rest of the year had its ups and downs. Some would probably say more downs than ups but Dusty and I have chosen to look at the good things that have happened this year rather than dwelling on the stuff that was ugly and out of our control.
Does that mean that none of that ugly stuff happened??? Of course not. But we want to look at where the blessings are and not allow the hard and negative stuff to take a hold. So this week on the Married and Replanting Podcast Dusty and I are taking some time to recap some of the things that happened during the year not only in our personal lives but with the church as well. I will be honest when I say that as we sat thinking things through we had quite a bit of good come out of the year. More than I anticipated that is for sure.
So I hope you will grab a cup of coffee, a glass of tea, or your favorite soda and join us for a conversation about the things that have taken place this year.
