I am taking a leap of faith….in God and man. I am trusting that God will help me through this life and I am trusting the advice of the staff here at the shelter.
Tomorrow I am going on a 5 hour trip to another shelter. In a tiny little town…smaller than any place I have ever been. I am a city girl, south side Phoenix was my stomping ground. There are over 4.5 million people in Phoenix and the surrounding cities. It is massive.
When I came to Missouri…I was poking fun at the population signs of 21,000 and 19,000. Then I moved to a town of 9,000 and was blown away by how small it is, how little there is and the whole small town thinking.
Tomorrow…I will be going to a town that has less than 2,000 people. I don’t even know how to react. That is so small. So different. So outside my comfort zone.
I am at peace with the decision. It is worth a try. I don’t have any friends or family in Missouri except for a few friends I made at this shelter. This shelter was never a permanent solution…so I will say goodbye and move on to a place where I can finally get my life straight.
Wish me luck.
