A Shot of Hope

Today, I got a “Shot of Hope”! I got my second dose of the Covid vaccine! When I got the first one in February, there was a since of relief that the light at the end of the tunnel was getting brighter. Now that I’ve had the second dose, I’m filled with hope!

I am filled with hope to hug people outside of my household soon.

I have hope that friends who haven’t seen their parents and grandparents since last March will get to see them soon.

I have hope that Mr Kisby will be able to get it soon along with all of our loved ones!

I have hope to see people in person that I haven’t felt comfortable visiting since last March.

I have hope that LilKsby will get to safely have play dates.

I have hope to be able to travel without worry so we can show LilKsby the world.

I have hope that we will start hearing more and more survival stories than stories of death or other long term impacts.

I have hope from the “Shot of Hope” that a brighter future will be here in the next few months.

Frankly, it feels AMAZING to have so much hope! For so long it seemed like there was not light at the end of the tunnel; it seemed like the pandemic was never going to come to a state of control (a true end still seems like an impossibility). There was a time when it seemed like we were never going to see people outside of our household or travel ever again. Those times were hard, so to have hope again is an extraordinary feeling!

I hope this extraordinary feeling keeps going; I hope that I can keep from getting brought down by those who don’t share my hope. Believe me, I understand that there are people who do not want to get the vaccine. I understand that there are people who have not been as cautious as me and my family have been. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, whether I agree or not, in any situation. As someone who understands, all I ask is that you don’t rain on my parade of hope. For me, the vaccine gives me hope for a better tomorrow…in a couple of weeks when it’s reached the max level of effectiveness!
