The Best Mother's Day Present Ever

I received two of the best possible Mother’s Day presents ever this weekend.

Daughter #1 has a new job complete with a large increase in salary. In fact, Daughter #1, at the age of almost 25 will be earning as much as her mother. That’s both exciting and depressing considering that I have 30 years of experience in my chosen but underpaid profession of teaching. She wasn’t even looking, a friend who went to work for the new employer recommended her.

Those are the best sort of job changes. She a web site graphics designer – not exactly, what she studied in college but she’s obviously very good at it.

Daughter #2 is engaged to the young man she brought home at Christmas. We found him delightful and we’re all very, very happy with the news. It was a romantic proposal - on the beach and he got down on one knee. He really is a keeper. No wedding date or place yet but I wonder if Disneyworld won’t be factored into the equation sometime in the near future.

And your pay could NEVER equal all the good you have done in your work all these years. School librarians like you are pearls without price!

Congratulations to your daughters. Isn't it nice when they do things that DON'T make us worry?
