What is there to say? I’m going to miss living here, in Minnesota. I’m going to miss waking up and knowing Peter is 5 steps away from me. I’m going to miss coming home from work, taking a shower and watching all the dirt run off my body. Sometimes I would have to sit on the floor of the shower just to scrub the dirt off my feet. I’m taking this each moment at a time. I couldn’t even fathom this reality back in March when I decided to accept my placement in Seattle for Lutheran Volunteer Corp. And then again when I was struggling to figure out where to live this summer, I just somehow got lucky enough to find a cute apartment with Clara and Peter.
I’m a lucky girl. But I’ve also worked hard to be where I am. I’m trying to take each moment as it comes. It’s better this way.
