It has been an interesting week around here, to put it mildly. The unexpected resignation of my boss has effectively ended my VISTA project. That said, I will be returning to Virginia in mid-September. I am still getting some of my end-of-service benefits for the 7 months I served which is somewhat helpful. This is all pretty sudden so I am still sorting out the details & making future plans. I would like to continue my work with the RC in some capacity.
Despite all that has taken place over the past week, I can not say that I regret my decision to move here & take this adventure. The lessons I have learned are both describable & indescribable & I know many of my experiences will have a lifelong impact on me. This has been a time of great personal growth & reflection. I am grateful for the support of so many people who have helped me along the way - both new friends & old.
As you know, it is nearly impossible for me to write an entire blog without mentioned my beloved daughter, Molly Brown. She has been a truly faithful companion through all this & I've seen her grow a lot too. I guess her personal reflection takes place while napping!
