I want to tell you how proud we are of you. We love you very much. It has been a hard road.
- I have been tough on you sometimes and spoiled you in other ways. No matter
what, Mom loves Blair. You always have a place to come home to be loved and hugged.
Let me share some ideas just in case you forget things I tried to lead with example:
-Never be afraid to start something difficult or long range. Write a plan. Work the tools take steps every day towards your goal, work the hardest first and even on Saturdays.
When there is failure –enjoy the process. The trip ups along the way teach their own lessons.
-Go to College for the adventure of learning. Find things you love to study. Never stop learning something new every day. You will work at a job all your life,
so adventure outside of comfort zones. You have the freedom to expand your mind in college, listen to others politics, do some performance art, kiss a math major, and try kick boxing.
-When you start working I pray you will find something you have passion to pursue. Be kind to co-workers they are team members in the trenches and you will find good and evil people but look for the great ones and connect, avoid gossip, ask for a raise all the time, be on time, and execute what you promise.
-Your word is all you have. Avoid saying harsh words. Don’t promise things you don’t plan to deliver.
-Save money. You are the only person who can take care of yourself. Save more than you think you will need. Save 15% of everything you take in.
-Find good friends. Keep in touch with them. Good girlfriends get you through tough times around the corner.
-You are the smartest person I know. You have the ability to be anything you want to become.
-Trust your kind heart. Don’t let anyone put you down. You deserve all that is delicious in this life. Be great.
-When you find that special person, be certain they support and respect you.
They should have the same goals as you hold or you will find life a struggle.
- Pray and be close to God. He is always listening to your creative and beautiful self.
-Your brother cares for you and looks up to you. Guide each other, laugh together often.
Congratulations on Your Graduation Blair!
You are a wonderful woman, a great daughter and special sister.
With all our hearts,
Momma and Carson
