She Found Her Wings
But unlike nowadays, unemployment wasn't rampant, rent was cheap, and when my hitch was over (graduation), I never returned home. By the time I was 20, I was married, had a job, and wanting to start a family. When we bought our first house two years after we were married, hubby was making $15,000 a year.
Nowadays, the chances of college grads getting a job right out of school is less than perfect. I know (very) young teachers who are working in offices and bakeries. It's a killer world out there, and even when you believe you were born to do exactly what you prepared yourself for, life, the economy and competition cause many to stumble.
But I know my daughter won't stumble, because she has found her wings, and on the wind of her imagination, creativity and talent with the written word, she will fly high into her own unique future.
