I Suppose I Had Been Worried

My COVID-19 test returned negative less than 24 hours later.

I was so relieved!

I supposed I didn’t realize how worried I was. After all, I’ve been teaching residentially in a hot spot for over six weeks. I’m on campus 3 times a week; I’ve been in grocery stores; and I’ve even been in Pittsburgh for a weekend. And while I always wear a mask and practice social distancing, I did carry this underlying fear of becoming ill with the virus. How could I not?

In fact, when I wake up in the morning and feel great with no fever, chills, sore throat, or any other symptoms, I always praise God and thank Him for one more healthy day. Maybe teachers everywhere do this as well.

So I breathed a deep sigh of relief to know that at least for now, I’m still healthy.
