Lately I have caught myself complaining of how our world has changed since the onset of Covid19. I even catch myself thinking of "BC times"... Before Covid! Of course it's not just covid but also an election year!
I am praying the changes brought on in 2020 are not permanent but I have been absolutely flabbergasted with how far this has gone... I predict it will all end or conversely we will fall into complete anarchy on November 4th!
However since I have done an awful lot of internal complaining dialogue over this mess... I have begun to discipline those thoughts into all the GOOD that has come into my life with these crazy circumstances. I have been working on a COVID TIMES GRATITUDE LIST!
This list contains many of the good things that have happened and/or I have accomplished since March1st 2020! I plan to keep adding items to this list daily until it all is over on Nov 4th!
What good has happened for you since the onset of the covid craziness??? Here is what I have come up with so far!
