This Black History Month and beyond, it’s important to look for and celebrate the little things that bring us joy, as well as the big achievements and accomplishments. The joy of resilience. Of caring for others and ourselves during trying times. Of sharing our stories and our assistance. Of connecting with others, even if at a distance. This is a Joy Supreme.
