Words of Wisdom
As my daughter accomplished 13 years of school, I found the need to review, summarize, and inspire her with words of wisdom. As her eyes paced back in forth and her energy focused only on what to wear for senior week I wanted her to stop, I wanted her to hear what I was going to say and be able to look at something tangible to always remember my “powerful” speech.
I found the perfect gift to match my words…The Cause a Ripple Stone.
As I put the stone in my daughter’s hand, I began. I told her in my life I was lucky enough to choose a career where I made a difference. Where I was able to teach, inspire and cause a ripple in the lives of young children. I told her I wished she could find that in her career choice, the ability to make a difference, to cause a ripple. I continued to say, I also feel very fortunate to say I honestly feel I have caused a ripple in your life, being your mom. We have overcome and accomplished many obstacles and I am proud of who we are and who you have become. So go out there and create your own life. Hold on to that stone and cause a ripple in your career, with your friends and your children.
