I am so happy. Can I just tell you that? By saying this, please don't assume that everything is perfect here. Even though I love them, being with my family has opened up like 50 cans of worms and some of them are smelly. But I am so happy. Like Erica, my Chi is centered. I'm still adjusting and I'm going through serious and sometimes scary training for my job that I have to drive an hour to get to every day and I haven't unpacked all the way and I'm menstrual and sick (sorry guys), and my Grandmama who I love more than anyone just went into the hospital, but everything is good and right and ok. I'm taking the time to look inward. It's hard some days and I don't always like what I see, but I'm so motivated to be my best me. Today at my job training I learned non-violent physical restraints in case I am attacked, yesterday I learned how to file incident reports so I don't get sued for something I didn't do, and Tuesday I learned all about taking precautions so I won't get AIDS or Hepatitis from any of my clients. For those of you that don't know, I'm working for a domestic violence shelter. The organization I work for is so wonderful. They do so much good. They have several DV shelters, homeless shelters, boys homes, etc. I was hired 4 days after I got here and the shelter is only 3 blocks away from my house. I'm excited to begin my work next week. My Father in Heaven never ceases to amaze me. I feel so blessed. My health is already better than it was and things are so very right. I just wanted to tell you all that. I'm happy and I love you guys.
