One Small Step Toward the End of This Pandemic

Today, with blue skies and a hint of clouds
I took my folks to get vaccinated
I said a prayer, giving thanks and giving praise, my parents were going to be protected from this virus
what a strange thing, all of this, to take your family to get a vaccine and to thank God for it

Like so many other trips throughout this Pandemic
I took my folks into town, just another errand we had to get done together
but what a strange task this one was when you really think about it
not a chore in the least, but a thing I’m grateful for

I registered them, took them, sent them in with their paperwork, and let out a sigh of relief
we were on our way to what I hope and pray is a little more safety
not just another task to meet, but a moment to begin
one step toward the end of this Pandemic

We traveled a little trip toward hope today
I said a prayer, giving thanks and giving praise, my parents were going to be protected from this virus
one small step toward the end of this Pandemic
just another day, like any day, blue skies and a hint of clouds
