How is everyone holding up?

I do believe in God and everything is done in His timing and not my own. Just that this COVID 19 is testing my patience. My love and I, had plans and it  had to be postpone.

1. He works at a hospital (essential worker) so he couldn't even come n visit me when we planned. I am grateful we were able to spend time together during valentines weekend.

2. We had to stop all the wedding plans because we do not know at this rate when we can have the wedding.

3. We are praying that the forms and rules do not change to be more difficult or serve before we are able to submit our I-130 form. 

I always had a tourist visa and both of us are employed at hospitals at our respectively home country (US and Bahamas) and we are saving for our wedding,  applications fees and our new home. (yes we counting out pennies) 

I have to say we are praying for all that they will over come this season of life and we all will be able to be with our live loves sooner that later. 

Oh how I miss him dearly. Face time is getting boring. 

How are you guys making it through  and passing the time by during these uncertain times.
