My Gratitude List for 2022

in , by Linda B Hurd, December 19, 2022

Flowing from my heart is gratefulness. This holiday season I am grateful for quite a few things. I wanted to create a list of fifteen things that I am wrapping up this 2022 year with a grateful heart for. I believe that many people do not take the time to practice gratitude or reflection.

We can get so consumed with our struggles, finances, love life, work, and even for women like myself motherhood that we can lose focus on all the things that we could be smiling about that we are blessed with.
