Silver France Crown Charm
A few years from now that same girl, a little older, will roll out of bed, throw on some jeans and flip-flops and tote a slightly heavier backpack to class. She'll deliver her presentation on the latest theory of education and smile when she gets an A, committed to helping every child learn.
Handmade Miniature Book Pendant
A few years after that the girl, now a woman, will wake up with her alarm and sip coffee while putting on black pants and comfortable shoes. She'll pick up a canvas tote bag full of graded papers and head to her classroom, committed to changing the world, one student at a time.
Lady in Profile Cameo
Even further down the road, the woman will wake up rubbing her swollen belly and listen to her husband sip coffee while getting ready for work. She'll get up and pour a bowl of cereal and skip the coffee, committed to making sure she has a healthy baby.
Porcelain Artichoke Baby
She'll look into the little girl's eyes and realize that she's come full circle and that this is the greatest commitment she'll ever make. The commitment to teach another what commitment really means, how it affects everyone around you, and that it can change the world...one commitment at a time.
Beautiful and true.ReplyDelete
Que hermoso pensamiento. Yo estoy en mi ultima etapa, la de madre... y estoy locamente enamorada de mis hijos. El tesoro mas preciado que Dios nos puede dar, nuestros hijos.ReplyDelete
You know I just became a mom but I feel all this great stuff is right in front of me in the years to come (hopefully). From the perspective of a mom I am going to re-live the circle again, and I am very happy about being able to see things from a different perspective.ReplyDelete
As a mom of a 17 year old girl I can so relate to all the sides of this story and I have to say I am a little choked up. That is a beautiful post! Thank youReplyDelete
