My mom has worked in clerical work for more than 38 years. Today she retires. Early this morning I left this message on her voicemail so she could listen to it and know how much I appreciate her. I thought I would share it with you too since her work has impacted you too. Let me know what you think or share about your mom over on my Facebook page.
“Mom I just wanted to leave you a little message on your last day of work. I am so proud to be your daughter. You have been a wonderful mom and example to me. You always have had a great work ethic throughout these 38 years. You always stayed positive no matter if the environment around you wasn’t so positive, or the jobs were not the best. I know you took the jobs you did so that you could earn more money and help me throughout the years.”
“You sacrificed so I could have a good education, opportunities and help when I needed it. I don’t think that I realized your true sacrifice until recently. I realize now that when you were a single mom, you left a job and community you loved to make more money and went from feeling honored and worthy to feeling like a number. You sacrificed some of your dreams and happiness so I could have mine. I know for a fact that I wouldn’t be the woman I am today personally and professionally if it weren’t for your sacrifice. So when you look back at your career know that your accomplishments go farther than 38 years of being a secretary but there are now hundreds and thousands of other women and men whose lives have changed for the better because of the sacrifices you have made.”
I love you mom.
Your #1 Daughter (and only daughter),
