I love New Hampshire!
OK, so we have moved, been here a week and a half. It is so awesome! People have been great, church has been great, the schools have not been so good, but there will be other opportunities here. I am especially glad my kids will finally have a decent church experience. There is a lot to get used to, I'm not used to being included at church, I'm not used to people acting normal and not purposely ignoring me or trying to avoid me. I've forgotten how it feels to enjoy going to church too. I feel vindicated in a lot of ways too, the contrast is stark in some respects. It will take me some time to mull it over, and be ready to process it all. I have decided to not talk about my past experience with people here, it doesn't do anyone any good and it just reminds me of the pain. It's just time to look forward. In time I will be able to compare and contrast and really learn from the whole experience. But for now I'm just going to enjoy being left alone, being allowed to live my life the way I see fit and not having to expend so much emotional energy just to stay afloat. Go New Hampshire, I love the "live free or die" state! I'm sure I'll write more about it some day, but I am looking forward to some good times and meeting and getting to know some nice people and spending some good time with my family. Life is good!
