March Slice of Life

My oldest daughter lives 3 hours away.  We see each other every couple of months or so.  She has been  working three jobs since the start of the year.  One of which is as a hostess.  She has never worked in the restaurant field .  On the nights that she goes in she can come in a little early have dinner with the staff.  During the meal she has been given lots of knowledge about grapes and wine.  It has been a good experience for her.

She called last week to say she has had several phone interviews and she is very excited about her future if things go her way.  This morning she called quite upbeat to announce she got the job that she was looking forward to getting.  She will eventually have to move, but at first she will commute the hour trip to her new job.  I am so happy for her.  She has always been able to achieve what she has wanted to do.  In college she matter of factly told us that she was going to be a white house intern.  We just nodded our heads knowing that it was not be easy to get such a job and actually get paid for it, but she did, and it was a fantastic opportunity. She thanked us for our support knowing that we will be there for her.  I love being a parent.  Not always an easy job, but one that has made me a better person.

    I just had to click on your post. I, too, have a daughter that lives 2 1/2 hours away and just delivered some good news to us last night (I’ll slice about it this week). I love being a mom to two daughters and feel your live shining through in your words. You have encouraged her to be the young woman she has grown up to be! I’m curious about her new job!!

    I had to read your post to see what the good news was all about! Congratulations to your daughter on her new job, and to you, her parents, for supporting her dreams and believing in her abilities. It is so satisfying to see how they grow after high school, isn’t it?

    Moments like this are what make parenting so worth all the dips along the way. Your daughter sounds like an amazingly directed young woman – bravo and good luck to her!

    Congratulations to your daughter and to you! I think the hardest thing about parenting is the change that had to happen from telling our kids what to do to allowing them to be out on their own. You seem to have done a great job with both stages!
