My husband and I met a young waitress tonight – she is so inspiring. When we asked how she was she said, ‘Great! I got As on my first two mid-terms in college.’ She dropped out of school in 9th grade – had a baby at 16. Her daughter is a great high school student. Now Mom is going back to school to be a nurse. We offered to pay for her books, parking etc for her next semester because her tuition is already covered. We’re still smiling – inspired by this woman who always believed she could work hard but doubted her academic skills. Now she is choosing to move past her doubts and prove herself to herself…and her daughter.
