And then there are days.
These are some hard days this week. Sad stories happening to good people. This job is such a blessing, and has so many beautiful moments. It also brings me so close to so much heartache. I am so thankful that I am able to be utilized and that I can help such honest and wonderful people.
Today, as I have sometime to myself, I am reflecting on the events of this past week. How fast life can change and how little control we have over it. I admire the strength of my students and the courage they show. I can barely imagine dealing with some of their issues as me. Let alone facing these life problems without fully understanding our language or knowledge of our systems and culture. It is amazing to see how fearless they are, how tirelessly they work. They never complain, never ask for help and face each challenge with courage. I am so thankful to be able to be a part of their lives and to help these terrific people!
But being a part of this has its tolls. My heart is heavy today. My mind is swirling. I wish I could do more and I feel so sad that I am so tired.
