Well, this is not the post I intended to sit down and
with that said, I will just say it.
Our smart and beautiful oldest daughter, Emily
has decided that next year when she
graduates high school she is
going to go to Cosmetology school.
This school is a Paul Mitchell Academy.
We went to visit it last Spring and it is amazing .
Seriously, it is not just Beauty School...
I always think of Pinky for Grease when Someone
utters Beauty School.
I think it has gotten a bad rep.
anyway, if she wanted to be a garbage girl (they make good money) or
a zoo keeper.. maybe a neuro surgeon, well it wouldn't matter, we
would love and support her decision.
Yesterday, someone who calls themselves a responsible adult made a
statement that floored me.
this gal, asked her over Facebook what colleges she was
looking at for next year.
She replied that she was going to go to beauty school.
then the person, private messaged her that
she is much to pretty and smart to
go to beauty school and she should consider
going to college...
What a dingbat. So what she is saying is anyone who
can't cut it and go to college.... is wasting their life?
all those blue color workers... plumber's, electrician's...artist's
garbage men... hairdresser's.. waitresses'... MOM's. need I go on?
So I have been pondering this statement since yesterday morning.
THere are many things I would like to say
back to this friend of mine... but
it wouldn't be very Christ like and
I am not sure how to approach this subject
without the Mamma Bear Claws coming out.
Emily, has always had a tough time in school.
It just has never been her thing. She LOVES going to school.
She loves the social club that it allows her
but the academics.. well not that she isn't smart (SHE IS)
they just never have really mattered to her.
now, give her something that she
is interested in and she takes off.
So I hate when people choose
to try and help kids...
that have no idea what on earth they are saying...
How it will effect them.
How the WORDs that they utter
can cause damage and hurt.
They can make people feel poorly and
just not good enough.
My Emily is a bright and shining star.
For I know that she is wonderfully made.
I know that GOD has a plan for her life
and that whatever it is that she does
she will do it amazingly because she
has a mighty and powerful creator.
