I realized after moving away that I had a spring in my step. Shantal asked me what was going on and I told her I finally moved and she said that explains the walk. “So it wasn’t just me who noticed,” I said to her and I smiled.
When packing I started to come across things that I’ve not seen in 10 years including court papers of the man who’s name I’d forgotten three years before. There was his name and all the memories came flashing back I left the apartment and went to All Saints and cried. Barb, Shantal and Marjorie created a safe place mentally for me. After talking with them I went back to my soon to be old apartment, packed a few things I need and went home to my new place, thanks to All Saints I found my piece of mind again.*
