Denver, part II.

I am now gainfully employed. In my first grown-up job! With benefits, 401k, and no end in sight. I am thrilled and so incredibly thankful. I get to fill my days with sweet children and their formerly homeless and/or addicted mothers, helping them learn self-sufficiency and good life skills, and how to love and raise their children well, and how to have healthy relationships, and everything. The Children's Coordinator at Champa House - That's me!

I seriously love living in Denver. Why? So many things... I love the snow, and the sun that melts it away the next day. The random bars and coffee shops that crop up where you least expect them. The old, old buildings. It's Colorado - we wake up to the mountains every day!

Anyways, I never thought that I would find a place in the United States - or anywhere, for that matter - that I could see myself living in forever. Never leaving. Not that I want to do that, but if it were to happen... I think I would be okay.

A new job possibility is on the horizon as the end of my time at MOC looms. Most of me is dreading the leaving, the being away from it and them, but then there's a part of me... That knows there is something better. That realizes that I am capable of anything I set my mind to. That I'm not just passionate... I'm kinda talented (not really sure what at, yet), and I'm "part of the family".

And being married... It's great. I get to live and do life with my best friend. What could be better?
