31 Good Things that Happened in December

Hello and welcome back to another edition of All the Good Things, the final edition of 2019!

2019 was a year full of good things, even though sometimes the good seemed hard to find under the bad. I can only hope that 2020 is filled with just as much, if not more good, and that this upcoming decade magnifies that good to the highest degree.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and I wish you a very Happy New Year!
