It was fun to help our nephew celebrate his graduation from the College of Education at Kansas State University today. He is looking forward to his chosen career of elementary education. We need good teachers. He will be one.
Pondering over a message for his card, Dan and I finally came up with this:
Congratulations! We applaud your achievements and choice of career. Now with excitement and anticipation, look ahead with a solid foundation.
Tonight as I ponder over a retirement card I purchased for my long time and dear friend who spent her entire working career as a successful and much loved day care provider, it hit me how appropriate the same message would be for her card.
College graduation and looking forward to a career versus retirement from many years working are most importantly similar in that both are the beginning of an adventure.
Taylor and Barb, go forth and have fun!
