Waiting Thoughts

Today has been a day of waiting from afar.

Wedding, Bride, ParentsMy sweet little Niece will be a mother soon.

The last time I saw her was at her wedding, and because of the last year have not been able to get back to the Midwest to visit family since.

The next time I go back to Iowa or Missouri I will get to see my great niece.

I am having memories of the first time I saw my niece. I was living in Kansas City and took a flight up to Michigan to see her on her first Christmas.

Today is really putting time in perspective and I am realizing how long we have been socially distancing.

Christmas Market, Jena Germany, snow, Christmas TimeI have only made one trip since I was back to the Midwest for my Niece’s wedding.

I made a trip to Germany just after in December 2019. Who would have thought that we would be sheltering in place a couple months later?

It has been a year of waiting for a vaccine, and for numbers to drop.

We are still waiting, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. A month from now I will have had my second shot and perhaps thinking of future trips to catch up on some of the things that have been left undone this year. Especially a trip to go see my great niece.
