Back-to-school blessings

May your staples never jam,
Your pencils always be sharp,
Your ink flow smoothly,
Your post-its always be sticky,
Your sharpies always be bright,
Your glue never clog,
And your Mr. Sketch markers
Always be smelly.

Your first steps

“Your first steps.
Your first day at school. Your first heartbreak.
When I first drop you off at college.
Your firsts become my firsts.
And I’ll not only be there for every single one,
I’ll love you right on through them.” – Vicki Reece

My baby is off to college

It is not going to be easy

“I am not telling you it is going to be easy, I am telling you it is going to be worth it.” – Art Williams

May the road rise up to meet you

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm on your face.
The rains fall soft on your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you
In the palm of His hand.
– Traditional Gaelic blessings

You’re off to great places

“You’re off to great places.
Today is your day.
Your mountain is waiting.
So get on your way.” – Dr. Seuss
