I’ve been circling a holding pattern for the last couple months, getting a few household projects done, keeping up with some of the household chores, and spending way too much time playing video games. Now I’m turning crosswind for a final approach as the Nursing Program at my local state college was scheduled to send out acceptance letters two days ago. Considering wind direction, airspeed, rate of descent, and drag, I expect good news to land in my mailbox by lunchtime today. These moments of anticipation bring a heightened state of excited awareness mixed with concern and a dash of reverent fear like those tense moments in flight school years ago, when it was time to bring my free-flying wheels over the trees and onto the runway.
Your prayers are always appreciated.
