I am thankful for all of the prayers that you have given me in the time that I was stressed out and accused of things that I didn't do as a teacher. Well I left my job on the Reservation and now I am living Tacoma, WA doing something new. I am a live-in assistant with L'Arche. It is very rewarding so far, but very different from teaching. I am struggling to let go of what I had and finding time for myself to get nourished. I am hoping that I meet new friends and I am kind of getting lonely on my days away from my job. I am happy to have this opportunity but I am going to be sad that I will not be able to go home for Christmas. It has been so many changes in my life at once and I think that I am really struggling with these changes and not teaching. I loved my students, I have been having dreams of my former students the past couple of nights On another note my family's farm is under threat of having a compressor station put in place adjacent to our property and my parents are fighting it. This has to do with fracking. I am really worried about this and it is in my mind everyday. My family could use prayers and such to get through this whole thing, they have many legal battles ahead. My parent's own an organic vegetable farm in PA. Sorry this is so long. My heart is torn into two different pieces.
