2020 was a year that was highly anticipated and that knocked us off our feet! The year started off on a devastating path with deadly tornadoes in Nashville and then led right into Covid, quarantine and masks. While this year was always be remembered as a very difficult year, there was joy amid the chaos and heartache. I’m thankful for the lessons our family learned, for the ways that we slowed down and how we had to be creative and make the most of every day. Like most, I’m ready to usher in the new year and the hope that it brings. However, I would like to focus on the good things this year brought.
