Guess what? I got the opportunity to thank that student I told you
about...and I was even wearing my comfy summer robe. Who cares? I was out
side talking to my husband and who should drive up? It was N.W. and he is
now going to the school I graduated from.
I shook his hand and told him he really did get an A in art and he knew
exactly what I meant. He just got a new job too -- and was really proud of
My husband and I am going to use part of my summer to help him succeed in
his new school (if "N" has the time...smile). The motto from my graduating
"Never look back it's been said -- Look forward for it is beginning"
I know--because I wrote it in big huge calligraphy letters for graduation.
Although I have had to modify it for my own life. We have to look back and
learn from the past.
"Learn from the past --take the good. Look forward for it is beginning"
A few years ago....I was made guilty to be an "Indian" (long story... I
wrote a letter but never sent it). I am very proud to be an Indian again and
will tell you more lessons I learned that really taught me the most about
education. I even used the name of my high school as a way to get a business
man correct a problem I had with my vehicle. I told him I went to his
business because we went to the same school..and he knew my sister.
I have a ring around my finger now that shows my pride in my high school. My
ring was stolen soon after I got it in 10th grade. Now I wear my gold of the
Black Hills -- onyx stone for my high school --balanced by two leaves for my
love for nature.
