Location, Location, Location

I've already shared that I don't like change. I especially am not a fan of geographic change, though, somehow, I managed to leave New England through North Carolina and end up in Middle Tennessee.

I could never be a "traveling nurse". I like to have a home base. Preferably one where I can set down roots - literal and figurative.

At church, I prefer to sit in a certain location. When I've changed churches, I've continued to pick the same general geographic location. It was a big deal for me - as crazy as it sounds - when I joined the deaf ministry. It meant I would have to move from my preferred seating area.

I knew it would happen when I started karate. You see, the "new kid" lines up on the very end, on the right, in the back row. The problem is, I didn't expect another "new kid" so soon. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad she's here, but she's kinda in my spot.

So, challenged again, I have taken two steps to the left.

Yes, of course I'll get over it.... and perhaps I will even learn a little bit about my tendency to stay in one place.
