My Baby is a PILOT!!!
How proud can a Papa be? Way beyond what my words can say, but I'll try. Not just because of her dedication to achieving this and the concentration and effort that she put into this amazing accomplishment for the past two years, but for the love, compassion, empathy, and selflessness that she has exhibited her entire life. Always excelling in school, dance, drama, and music (she sits down at the piano after hearing a piece and plays it through beautifully the first time), she amazes even more in her pure heart and her love for God and family.
This incredible girl will be a senior in high school starting in a few weeks and will be dual-enrolled for the second year in addition to all of the above, so she will graduate next May with her HS degree and an AA degree in business, to be followed by a full BA in that discipline and full time training at Christian-focused Southeastern University in their Commercial Pilot program at nearby Lakeland Linder Airport. That's right, she will be in the left cockpit seat of the big jets in one more blink of my eye.
Thank God for giving me, her Nana, and her incredibly devoted Mama (fourth grade teacher at their Oldsmar Christian School for many years, touching so many childrens' lives) this gift straight from Him.
Forever and ever, Amen.
