Can you believe it? 2020 is almost over? This has been a painful year and trying year to say the least. But that doesn’t mean that people aren’t experiencing happiness, joy and growth. I asked my followers to share their best moments of 2020, aand was just so emotional reading everyone’s responses. So many new babies, weddings, relationships, new careers, healing and all around good news. Reading this filled my heart with gratitude and hope. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
Here are your own best moments. Thank you for sharing with us.
