April 7 Day 395: Second Hope

I’m waiting my 15 minutes, followed by 2 more weeks. I’m surprised how emotional I feel. There is a lump in my throat and tears pool in my eyes as I thank everyone involved from the volunteers on crowd control to the RNs dispensing the coveted elixir.

I can finally imagine visiting my family in Tennessee or teaching in person in the autumn. For the first time I know this pandemic adventure will come to an end. We are not there yet, but we are making progress.

In the meantime, be well. Stay safe. Get vaccinated.
