When I was little, my mom let me help wash the
dishes. This was a task she probably could have
finished in half the time it took us to do it
together. She let me help, though, because she
and my dad knew it was important that their
children learn how to do things like wash
dishes, vacuum, and mow the lawn. Through their
lessons, my siblings and I learned skills to
help us survive once we left home. As an added
bonus we also learned that our parents loved,
trusted, and valued us.
It is so easy for us as parents to want to make
everything so easy for our children, but we have
to remember, as hard as it may be for us to
take, we will not always be there to do that for
our children. So, now is the time to teach these
hard lessons and equip our children with the
right defenses they need.
For this reason I want to thank you for sending
your precious children to Trinity Catholic
School. It is within these walls that we can
equip your children with the greatest defense of
all, Our Almighty God. Our God helps us get
through so many difficult things every day.
If our children are allowed to struggle and are
taught to turn to our loving God to help them
through it, then the rest of their lives they
will understand and rely on God in good times
AND bad. If together we can do this for
our children, what a wonderful peaceful world we
My prayer for all of you is that you find peace
and joy in your everyday lives.
God Bless you,
