Move in day at MC runs like a dream. We were told to pull in at 8AM. We were there at 7:45 and there were 75 cars lined up! Soon, the line was moving, we pulled up to her dorm, and upperclassmen unloaded us. We never even left the car!
It was extremely efficient and organized.
We parked and began setting up her room. Big furniture placement came first.
CC was really longing to be there that day. He wore his MC t-shirt all day in Turkey! He texted me questions like, "What's the view out her window?" I did my best to answer him.
In all honesty, she didn't need much help from me. But I loved being there. I put together her closet and desk drawers. Her room was looking more and more like Turkey!
Her roommate is a sweet girl from Mississippi. She also began finding her other connections, including this senior from our home church in Memphis.
And I found an old friend too! I haven't seen Shelby since high school graduation day, but we found each other that day and hugged and laughed about our yearbook camp experience!
She texted me this picture this week, as I wanted her to send one with the rug included. Her rug was a graduation present. We also ran together to Walmart just before I left to buy a piece of fabric for her wall, feeling like the color would warm up the white wall and complement her rug. Her sister told her on FaceTime, "If this were on Pinterest, I'd tag it!" "Really?!" she replied. That's a compliment! I just want it to feel like home and represent her. And I think it does.
This time was busy and exciting, an easy avenue to avoid the thought of walking away from her in a matter of a day and a half.
