"When Prayers go up, blessings come down. Keep God first. Thank Him every day upon waking and throughout your day!"
I prayed for this day. I can't believe it is here. I go between moments of gratitude and moments of disbelief in the movement of time. How fast time flies. It seems like yesterday my sister Pina and I took Paulo jr to Heartland Preschool. He was 3 years old. He was 4 when he started Junior Kindergarten at Renfrew Educational Services. From Kindergarten to the end of grade 6 he remained a part of that amazing school. They were the love and support we needed. To this day our invisible thread to that school is strong. We have remained friends with many of his old Child Development Facilitators. When he moved to middle school he attended Don Bosco School. These years were not easy. It was a difficult transition to begin with as the safety of Renfrew was like no other.
Looking back through that period I am so very proud of my son. He dealt with the transition to a big school and his mother being sick and diagnosed with cancer better than we give him credit. During this time he also manifested epilepsy. His soul couldn't take that his mom was sick and he thought I was going to die. I know God carried us through that time. I owe a lot to my husband Paulo and to my family and friends who helped us during that time. We had a great supportive principal in Mrs. Deb Woods. When Paulo graduated from gr 9 it was a momentous celebration. Now he is at Bishop O'Byrne High School . He will complete grade 12 this year.
I am proud of Paulo jr. He is a great kid. I am learning to trust his spirit. I know he has his own life to live and I am here to surround, protect and guide and love him no matter what. I look forward to what this year brings. I know with God we are rooted in all that is good. I thank God and I thank all the teachers and I thank my family for helping us get this far. Grad 2016 is going to be a reason for celebration. It is a celebration of LIFE of LOVE, of Strength, of FAITH, GRACE and FAMILY.. and of learning.
Please join me in prayers for my son, my family and for all the young people who are completing grade 12 this year. May they all be filled with the Love of God, Jesus and the light of the Holy Spirit. Mostly may they feel loved.
