Full Circle

When I graduated from college, I told myself that I am going to see the world. My plans to get rich though had been sidetracked by a nobler calling - teaching. I haven't seen the places I dreamed of visiting but every now and then, I would receive a post card or a city memento from former students who had gone to the places I challenged them to see. Well, it was heartwarming to be remembered. I thank God that somehow I had made the difference in my students' lives. That is what they say. One day, I would make my dream come true - travel the world with my daughters. Right now though, with the contentment and happiness tossed from the heavens, I already feel that I have come full circle. The future would be just added circles in my life. Sort of bonuses.

Yup, my students had been my treasure. I also like to believe they are my legacy. I suppose every human would like to leave a mark on this earth. I know that I would live on as my students pass on what I tried to impart to them in the academe. I may be an ornery teacher but I also like to think that I had made a difference to a few souls. I am happy! I do hope your are, too.

When I was growing up I never really had a big dream of traveling...well over the years the opportunities have arisen where I was able to see places I have never thought I would see....both my daughters married career military and so......I have seen so many places! I hope someday you will too!

Thank you jillhill. Daughters are just about the best blessings a mother could have, aren't they. They constantly bring surprises. My girls are still in their teens but they have brought so much pride and honor to my family already. Of course I do pray that God grants them good partners in life. I am glad that you and your daughters and their spouses bond together. That is how a family should stay.
