I see signs of better days ahead. I feel as if shards of light are piercing through the gray film we’ve all been living under since 2020. Each day there are more people being vaccinated, plans being developed for schools and businesses reopening, the promise of a Covid relief bill, and spring on the horizon. I am hopeful.
Few of us in our lifetime have ever experienced the likes of this Pandemic, or America’s heated political climate, or the assault on our nations Capitol, delivered at the hands of our very own citizens. It has changed us. It has divided some of us. It has united some of us. And it has misguided many. I know it’s naïve of me to think that things will return to “normal.” But I’m hopeful that there will be better days ahead. Small steps, but towards a better tomorrow.
I wish all of you the best. Stay safe, be kind to one another. I’m spending more days just hanging with my pup, taking deep breaths, and being thankful that I’ve made it this far.
