Happy New Year everyone!!!! We are in 2022!! I know I am am little late with this post….I really must apologize. It’s been a hectic 2 weeks!
But before I fill you guys in on all of my hopes and plans for this new year, I thought I would address a topic that has been on my heart for a while. I actually started this post weeks ago but just couldn’t seem to find the right words.
Right now the climate is so very distressing as there has been a large spike in Covid cases in my country, similar to many other countries across the world actually. This of course has brought up the discussion about offering booster shots. Which makes me wonder…….. just when will the world realize that offering booster shots for every new variant that pops up probably might not be the best approach?
But that is a conversation for another day.
I mean, I have no problem with the vaccine itself as I am fully vaccinated. What I have an issue with is the attitude that people have during this very trying season. They are so very inconsiderate!
So many people seem to be of the opinion that unvaccinated persons are a ‘threat’ to them, their families and society in general. Nations seem to be divided by the status – vaccinated or unvaccinated. I literally just looked at a new report in which the president of the U.S called this pandemic the ‘unvaccinated pandemic’. Yes we all know that risk of hospitalization decreases in the event of being vaccinated. But has anyone stopped to wonder how persons who have different statuses within the same family are being affected by these harsh tones and propaganda? What are they supposed to do? Be mad at their mom/brother/wife for not wanting to get vaccinated?!
We are living in a scary time my friends.
As I said before, I am fully vaccinated and apparently due for a booster shot. But my husband – is not vaccinated. He just doesn’t feel comfortable getting it just yet. I thank God for keeping us from the virus thus far, because trust me it’s only God that can keep anyone right now. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t trouble me. I am human! I want my husband to be safe!
It has been difficult to keep my tongue in my head and not pester him about it. But you guys, he has a choice!!! And that is what so many other persons who are running around headless and full of fear seem to be forgetting. Choice. Everyone has it. And yes others can be a threat to you but they have a choice and so do you.
My choice right now is to love my husband inspite of his decision (or indecision). And to trust God through it all.
How about you? Are any of you in a similar situation? How are you handling it? And what are your thoughts on being vaccinated? I would love to know.
Have a blessed weekend everyone! ❤
