Another Trip Around the Sun

There have been past years to which I was more than a little excited to say goodbye. But this, this ending of 2020, garners an international sigh of relief. Yes, we’ll all welcome 2021, hoping it brings with it a new day. The light at the end of the COVID tunnel seems to be on the ’21 calendar. Not even going to say ‘2021’ because I’m so done with 20. President-elect Biden will take office despite the current administration’s unprofessional actions to make the transition more difficult than it was already going to be, as we wait for a federal vaccination program to be implemented through state and local health departments.

The other, hugely important societal eruption was the cry of people all over the country demanding change to concretely address racial injustice and inequality. Nothing seems to have changed significantly, from my perspective, but I’m confident President Biden and VP Harris will be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. As millions of people receive the vaccination, work will continue to address racial and economic disparities.

Personally, I haven’t shed tears in several days! That’s big for me. I’m enjoying this and taking one day at a time.

Happy New Year, may it be so. ♡

Writing is one of my passions. Most blog entries are relatively short articles regarding a wide variety of topics. I'm a middle-aged wife and mother of two adult sons. I've been a teacher, counselor, medical transcriptionist, student teacher supervisor, substitute teacher and retail clerk. Staying home now due to fibromyalgia. Seeking purpose.
