Life is so full of changes, disappointments, challenges, and successes. My daughter has experienced another of life’s milestones by graduating from college and looking for a job as a Teacher. She chose a profession that doesn’t pay big in monetary ways but will give her more satisfaction and feeling of accomplishment than she knows yet. Teachers should be our hero’s along with those who serve our country. Melissa is both of these. She served in the Army and stuck it out even when it was hard. She came back changed in many ways, a lot not so good but she is my hero.
Becoming a teacher was a childhood dream that she finally embraced and has become among many hardships but with the support of her family and friends. I hope and pray that the parents of this generation learn to appreciate the teachers of our future and support them with honor and respect.
I am so very proud of all my children who have grown up and are learning to become the adults we hope and pray for them. Regardless of the path they have chosen, it is their path and their life to live. I just hope that they understand that life will still be full of disappointments and challenges that they will need to work through and overcome. But, the accomplishments will outweigh these and that is what they need to focus on.
It is impossible to convey just how proud my husband and I are of these young adults. We take such pleasure in celebrating their successes and will continue to do so for as long as we a part of this world.
Bless all of the teachers, and military for their service and sacrifice. May they never be forgotten.
