  8. This is great! In light of the current situation, we have been focusing on showing our appreciation to different people who have touched us in some way, shape or form. For example, this week we dropped off a gift card for a local pizza shop with a thank you letter in our neighbours’ mailbox, thanking them for being amazing neighbours. Everyone needs a little light in the face of the negativity right now.
