On January 1, 2020 we began running this gratitude marathon, and it continued despite all the surprises 2020 brought. Even in the most tumultuous times, these posts show that we can always find reasons for gratitude no matter what's happening in the world. Read on and be inspired in your own life.

I found my other half! When we're walking through thunderstorms, torrential rains, and downpours, it's like there's a patch of sunshine and rainbows and blue skies and fluffy clouds. Daisies just pop up in green grass as we walk in the happiness and glow of the sunshine above us. So yes, I'm thankful for this person here.
