Peace out Burmingham… Hello Raleigh…

Week one = done.

Tomorrow we head out at 7 am in a tan mini van name Sweet Caroline and a little blue Car yet to be named (chances are it will be some exotic, sexy male name).

It was about one year ago that I asked God to change my life. I had no idea what I wanted, or what He would do, and in all honesty, I am still a little lost.

I just spent the last week with a ton of college students, asking what their majors are, what they want to do with their lives, what their next great adventure is and I’m finding myself a little jealous… ok a lot jealous. I remember how it felt that last year of school, dreaming what my next adventure would be. I wrote out a detailed 5 year plan, and have yet to accomplish one item on the list, lived 3.5 years in Fargo feeling amazing, lost, confused, loved, destroyed, and stuck in the middle, and now I’m on a summer adventure with the joy of unemployment awaiting me in August.

Ok, no more introspective stuff. :)  Training went well. I’m excited to get to Raleigh. I’m looking forward to what God has in store. There… ending on a happy, non-stressed note.

Step one…

Woke up this morning in Atlanta, GA. Step one to getting to RALIEGH, NC. Can’t say it was easy to leave, but in all honesty, I know that the entire weight of my summer adventure and huge life change hasn’t hit me yet.

So today, I will continue to sing a line to my current favorite song, “I’ll take what the good Lord gives to take.”

I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good
