They wouldn't meet me halfway, or actually more mileage for me to give my son back to the xin laws... but my son's grandpa bought us dinner which was the nicest dinner I've had with my x father in law...

They both saw me crying, couldn't hold back the tears when I had to say bye to my son...
the grandpa said it sucked that I couldn't see him more often...
I realized the old man had some empathy...

Ill be starting a new job in high school work with the special needs students and emotionally disturbed kids...
The school saw that I did a very good job and were impressed when I subbed at all the schools in the district.

For the introduction they are wanting to know more about me , so I said  that I love surf swim races and was a volunteer life guard.. I love a great game of chess and feel I can make an impact at the school like I did in the New Mexico Indian reservation for 3 years!

coincidentally this daily Om showed up today:

A Great Teacher

by Madisyn Taylor
Water is a great teacher that shows us how to move through the world with grace, ease, determination, and humility.
The journey of water as it flows upon the earth can be a mirror of our own paths through life. Water begins its residence on earth as it falls from the sky or melts from ice and streams down a mountain into a tributary or stream. In the same way, we come into the world and begin our lives on earth. Like a river that flows within the confines of its banks, we are born with certain defining characteristics that govern our identity. We are born in a specific time and place, within a specific family, and with certain gifts and challenges. Within these parameters, we move through life, encountering many twists, turns, and obstacles along the way just as a river flows.

Water is a great teacher that shows us how to move through the world with grace, ease, determination, and humility. When a river breaks at a waterfall, it gains energy and moves on, as we encounter our own waterfalls, we may fall hard but we always keep moving on. Water can inspire us to not become rigid with fear or cling to what's familiar. Water is brave and does not waste time clinging to its past, but flows onward without looking back. At the same time, when there is a hole to be filled, water does not run away from it in fear of the dark; instead, water humbly and bravely fills the empty space. In the same way, we can face the dark moments of our life rather than run away from them.

Eventually, a river will empty into the sea. Water does not hold back from joining with a larger body, nor does it fear a loss of identity or control. It gracefully and humbly tumbles into the vastness by contributing its energy and merging without resistance. Each time we move beyond our individual egos to become part of something bigger, we can try our best to follow the lead of the river
