AN ABRUPT CHANGE OF PLANS

This time last year, I couldn't wait to see the brand new year. I had well thought out plans. I was going to start afresh and start anew. I was going back to school and do something that I always wanted to do. My goal was to go back to school and get into the healthcare field. I was a nurse's aide several years ago. As soon as got my taxes I was going to enroll in school. But the dreadful pandemic hit and put my dreams on hold. It felt like my life was passing me by. In 2020, I have experienced fear, hurt and complacency. However, I have felt sadness the most. Sadness for the folks that lost their lives to an invisible enemy A.K.A. Covid 19. I feel stuck in between the land of broken and unfulfilled dreams. But in the midst of all the noise and chaos in my soul. I have hope that all will get back to normal one day. I came to realize that without hope it would be real hard to face each new day. Alexis Y. 12/04/2020

What a lovely poem Alexis, thinking of all the unfortunate people who are going hungry, the ones that are very sick and the ones that have passed on. You will get your chance to study further, you will know when it's the right time. Hugs and blessings my dear friend, Jennifer.

Consider the California poppy; it chooses to shelter in place until conditions are appropriate to burst forth in beauty! Time is of the essence, so use it wisely! Aloha! Rico

Alexis, so sorry to learn your noble plan to enter the health care field has had to be set aside for awhile. There is such a need for folks in this career field now. Like you I pray we can get back to some semblance of normalcy soon. I'm glad you enjoy the TPeed Christmas tree write. A Merry Christmas to you and yours! Bob

Hello Alexis Y. I want you to go back to school and be a health care giver. With this illness going on it is best to put this plan on hold. Unless you can do this course on the computer. Enjoy your day my friend.
