Lately, I’ve just been going through the motions of putting one foot in front of another. I’m faking it until I make it, you could say. This year has taken quite a toll on me, as it has most of us. I’ve counted my blessings and I promise I am grateful. However, some days putting on that happy face is a huge struggle. The holidays haven’t really helped much. Fortunately, that’s almost over for a while. I’m holding on to the hope that 2021 is a better year. I want to say that it has to be, but I think that this year has proven…repeatedly…that it can always get worse.
