We are not big party people but this New Year’s Eve feels different than any other. I think we have such high hopes for the coming year and all that we may be able to do again it feels charged with hope and tinged with fear. This year my son will graduate high school. Both of my kids will to to college (fingers crossed). We will vacation as a family. We will see my parents. We will go out to eat in restaurants at some point this year.
I am excited. I have started cleaning and planning. I feel like I am coming alive again. I feel hope again. So many times it has been dashed this year. I think I just gave up hoping and was going along with the flow. Nothing is going to change so why plan? Why hope when everything has been cancelled so many times?
I see my friends who are older or in the medical field getting Covid-19 shots and saying how grateful they are. Things are going to change. No they will not be like they were before, ever, but they will change.
What are you planning for in the New Year?
