counting your blessingsJoin Adrienne this week for an exercise in counting your blessings as we reflect on the past year and our caregiving journeys. The lives of caregivers can be especially difficult but each of our daily lives include things that make us smile. The simple act of reflecting on the moments that bring us joy, both big and small, has been shown to make us happier.
