"There she goes again"

An Essay By Bridget // 11/4/2013

It's happening. I'm leaving. I'm becoming a storybook character. I'm moving away - far away. I know one person there. I will be starting all over. This is something I've always kind of wanted to do, and I am terrified. And I can't wait. What is it about me that makes me want to throw my entire life into the craziest venture I can come up with? Because this is insane. Truly and certifiably so. And I'm doing it. I am. You can't change my mind. An army of tanks led by a cannibalistic group of Nazis couldn't. But oh, I am so scared.
And yet here I come.

Is there anything specific I

Is there anything specific I can pray for you about? I know my first year away from home was really hard and full of new things to adjust to.

Thanks, guys, and thank you

Thanks, guys, and thank you especially, Kestrel. I'd rather not give a ton of specifics, but I am moving to Colorado, which is quite a ways away, and I'm doing it because, among other things, I have a very dear friend who needs some support. So if you want to pray for something, pray for my friend. And again, thank you. :)
