So much to be grateful for.

The day before my last event of 2023 means a day of full-on rest.

Because you can’t give what you don’t have.

I can reflect and wrap up next week.

Because the truth is that there is a lot to reflect on and wrap up from this year.

So much to be grateful for.

Actually, I am in total awe of it all.

And because the truth is that I am tired.

So, it was helpful when my team helped me see why…. The hours I spent actively teaching and training almost doubled this year from last.

Twenty-four more to go starting tomorrow.

So, today, I rest…

In holy shit total awe of what God has done.

Because how could I not?
