Soar Like an Eagle...

Wow, three grandkids graduating this year.  Cassidy and Jade will be heading 
off to middle school and Drew will be starting high school.  I am so proud of
 all three of them for the accomplishments they have each made.  My dream 
for each of them is to "soar like an eagle".  

The speaker at Cassidy's school told the story of an eagle egg that fell out of its nest.  It landed in a 
chicken coop and one of the hens raised it as a chicken after it hatched.  One day the "chicken" saw a bird flying overhead and asked the hen what it was.  She told the "chicken" that it was an eagle...the king of all birds.  The little "chicken" wanted to be an eagle, but it was too late.  It had been raised as a chicken 
and would always be a chicken.  So don't be like the chicken and be surrounded by those who don't appreciate you for who you are.  I pray each of you will be like the eagle and soar.  I pray you will 
each surround yourselves with positive people...don't waste your time on those who do not support 
and encourage you to be whatever you want to be.  Congratulations to all three of you.  
I love you all for the great young people you are and know you will all go far in life.  
Have fun as you enter middle and high school years and enjoy everything life has to offer you.

Seems not so long ago they were all just babes.  Where in the world does the time go?
