A quote: “God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless.” ~~ Chester W. Nimitz

I’ll start with a story …

**************************************

I woke up with my husband saying, “it’s time” and Duke sticking a wet nose underneath the blankets to hurry me.

As they left, I rolled out of bed to dress, then down the stairs and out the back into pitch blackness. Only the porch and barn lights were guides.

Duke was leaning against my husband as both looked over the whelping box.

Just like Duchess to pick the last hours of the year to give birth.

One, two, … the little miracles arrived, and number 7 was born just after midnight. A sign? Let’s hope so.

Happy New Year.

**************************************

Now, it’s your turn.

    Thoughts of a new year come with thoughtful recollections of the past one-we are surrounded by a general yukiness- yet daily I witness the invincible hopeful human spirit existing despite these challenging times- I for one will remain hopeful knowing that my spirit is holy and God given. I look back in the year and think about the amazing moment of watching my grandson enter into this broken world crying and I feel peaceful grace in consolation- I will remain steady, hopeful and prayerful that my spirit will become as contagious as the virus that is coming for all of us-

    The weather system had moved on into the Atlantic, leaving crisp, clear air in its wake, along with a nice blanket of snow. George Waite looked up at the full moon overhead.

    Ridiculous to imagine that Reggie would be looking back at him. Shepardsport was on Farside, so even if George’s eldest son were in the observatory, or suited up and on the surface, he’d be looking out into deep space, toward places that had still been explored only by robotic probes.

    More likely Reggie was in his office, preparing yet another video appealing to the American people to demand the Administration be held accountable for the Kitty Hawk Massacre. That or meeting with his department heads, trying to figure out how to make their life support systems stretch to accommodate the ever-increasing number of people coming up there with Writs of Expulsion against them.

    Sometimes George wished the call would come for him, that he could take his own stand and bear his share of the burden. Other times he was glad he was an old man, too battered from the wounds he’d taken in Vietnam to pass the necessary physicals.

    “Glad you were able to make it. Move your vehicles into the shed before the storm hits, and then we’ll have dinner.”

    “Good to be here. I imagine you saw this one? Paraphrasing here.”

    ‘And it came to pass in those days that a decree from Antonius Fauci went out that all the world should be vaxxed . . . ‘

    “Yep. Well, his reach exceeds his grasp for at least a while.”

    “Thankfully, your governor is a little more sensible.”

    “If it gets too bad in blue land, we can use some extra ranch hands and the garden will keep everyone fed.”
