Today, I am grateful for finding my communities of resistance.
I moved to Arizona with my family and not knowing another soul who lives in this state.
That move happened in the Fall of 2019 and in the Spring of 2020 we did not return from Spring Break because of the start of the Pandemic.
This was a wild time. To add to it my own kids were trying to figure things out with moving. We couldn't go anywhere and had no places to go. I didn't have time to meet and hang with my colleagues before everything was shut down.
During this time it became more and more clear that my wife and I were going down a path of divorce.
I have now lived in Arizona for almost 4 years and have been able to grow relationships with colleagues and co-workers at my second job and I know I can call a handful of people who would do what they can to help me and my kids if we had anything happen.
I know I have people in my corner.
I know I am not alone.
I am grateful for being able to know this and feel this.
