The Proud Mom post.
I think back to where I was September 1990, after I graduated High School. I had just found out I was pregnant with Alyssa.
Rick and I were eighteen, and besides wanting a family, we didn't know much how to do it!
Now our daughter is eighteen. She is a full time college student, doing volunteer work all over our city and county. She worked full time in a Help Desk environment over the summer, and received praise for her work ethic and performance.
When she has free time, she drives to Des Plaines to help my seventy-one year mother with whatever she can help with. She drives grandma to the store, helps out with the chores. Just yesterday after class, she went to my niece, her cousin's open house, because my brother was unable to attend. She went to all of her classes to gather information on the cirriculum.
I know she is going to be embarrassed to read this. But truly, I could not be more proud. She has a giving, selfless soul who thinks of others first.
Blessed for the holiday weekend! I hope you all are too!
Happy Labor Day!!
