The year 2022 is on the horizon, and, once again, I refuse to make any new year’s resolutions. I don’t believe in them because I would never keep them. But that won’t stop me from wishing and praying to see something different happen in 2022 from what I’ve seen over the last two years. Resolutions you can make happen, but with wishes and prayers you just have to hope that 2022 will be a better year. I think we can all connect to some of the following while others are strictly personal. Here’s some of my hopes, wishes, and prayers for 2022. What are yours?
I hope we’re coming out of the worst of this COVID tragedy. The above may seem a little light-hearted for such a serious subject. If you feel that way, I’m sorry. I’m sure we’ll be hearing stories about the hardships that we’ve gone through for a long time like our ancestors talked about surviving the Great Depression.
There’re not many good things to say about this journey except that we’ve gone through this mess together and the lucky ones have survived. Here’s to hoping and praying for a better, normal 2022.
