So, I won’t complain about the cold, knowing that I have freezing Yammies in Alaska, Chicago, NYC and DC.  I won’t complain about the aching feet from walking all these Washington hills because it gives me the opportunity to see my community up close.  I won’t complain about the feelings of being overwhelmed and a little scared as I visited Mary’s Place (my new site) for the first time today, because everyone was so inviting.  I won’t complain the new time differences that make phone calls between Kris and I difficult because at least we are in the same country now.  And I won’t complain about being lonely (yet), because my wonderful mother has been here with me this week, helping me get settled in and meeting my new community.
But what I will do is be thankful for the chance to start afresh, however scary that may be.  I will continue to keep my eyes open for chances to settle into this new life.  I will be adventurous and learn my way around.  And I will say this – only three days in, and I’m already falling in love with this city!!
