This is Jeri here –
Today began a new chapter in my life, and ultimately in our lives. Yesterday, after 17 1/2 years, I retired from United Way of Snohomish County. It was a strange and surreal feeling. I went to work like any other day, had meetings, did some email. Then at lunch, I was given a send off, lovely gifts and sentiments, and then it was time to leave. Such mixed emotions! I was so seriously ready to go, but this new chapter, though incredibly exciting, is a bit scary because of the unknown. Still, I anticipate it with joy, because I am stepping out, trusting in God and jumping in with both feet with my best friend and partner in life.
Tonight we met with our dear friends, Cyndy and Ken, who fed us dinner, and then tomorrow, we pack some more. We are now eating on paper plates, the movers come Monday the 27th, and we head out, if the weather permits, on March 2nd. First stop, Cheney, WA where we will spend time with kids and grandkids. May our weight on the RV be low and balanced, and may the weather gods be kind!
Here’s to new beginnings!
