I hope y’all enjoy my eleventh entry for Becca’s Nurturing Thursday Challenge. This week’s theme is stepping stones. Here’s a link to Becca’s Blog https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2019/10/17/nurt-thurs-stepping-stones/

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens to “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy!” I thank her for starting a challenge that will help us get through the difficulties that we all face. I thank Becca for doing something to help everyone feel better especially since this world has been so cruel lately.
