Wow! We’ve lived almost two years in a pandemic. When we thought that things were getting better, another strain was identified. Families divided and reunited. I was able to visit my parents for the first time in three years. I didn’t see them in 2019 because we relocated to Texas, and we all know about 2020. Once all three of us were vaccinated, I made my flight arrangements. It was also the first time in 8 months when I didn’t have to care for my husband. I needed the break.
I faced hard realities during this year. The biggest was accepting that my husband would never be the same. We won’t be able to travel together. My vacations will be solo, or with someone else. I had to accept that our bedroom is mine alone which was a difficult pill to swallow. I will never hear my husband’s voice.
However, there have been some triumphs this year. Professionally, I’m doing well. I passed the difficult PMP examination and achieved the honor of being certified as a PMP Project Manager. I found my voice photographically, and I was one of 12 featured photographers in the 2021 Georgetown, Texas Photography Festival.
Throughout 2021, we’ve all experienced highs and lows. I know that there were times when I felt that I would never get out of the valley. It was then that I would remember whose I am and who I am. I am God’s child. He made me the head and not the tail. Psalm 23 states that I will walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I try to hold onto these thoughts every single day.
Lord willing, I will officially launch my business in 2022. I am making strides toward that goal. Here’s to perseverance and leaning not to my own understanding. I pray God’s blessings and peace on your lives.
