2020 has been an exceptionally hard year. It has also been a blessing.
In the midst of my state locking down, our family welcomed a second child into the world. If she had showed up even a few days later, I would not have been allowed into the hospital with my wife.

There are two kids at home full-time and it's made work a nightmare, but we know a lot of other people face greater hardship.
