New Beginnings

The first day as a Cap Corp Volunteer at Capuchin Youth and Family Ministries

Saying goodbye is hard.

But, new beginnings are exciting. Especially when you’ve only ever lived in your bedroom at home.

After 24 hours, things are starting to feel more complete. We now have keys to our home.

And then I was finally able to fully make my bed,

And eat cookie butter with pretzels,

And successfully go grocery shopping. We even came in under budget.

With some down time I was able to write a few good letters.

Overall my first day was good. We received a lot of information at work, and I’m still processing that. That’s okay though. I have all year to adapt, and get better with the way things work here. My room is mostly unpacked. It feels kind of empty, but that’s probably because it’s much bigger than my room at home. Tomorrow we have mass at the Red House and some more orientation. So, Jesus will officially be moving into our house (he couldn’t make it yesterday).

Lots of love and prayers,
Mary
