2020 Birthday Gratitude List

Here are the 23 things that I am grateful for this year:

I started this in 2019 and have made it an annual endeavor. Each year I will create a list of one thing that I am grateful for to go along with each year of life — this year I put together a list of 23 things.

After creating this list I went back and reviewed the 22 things that I wrote the year prior.

What I particularly liked was the centeredness between both lists, I understand how small I am in this world and I also understand that I am God’s divine creation — just like each of us are.
