A Teacher who role-models fatherhood qualities!
A life-coach, a mentor, a musician, the next generation!
Mourning By, Irene
From sunrise to sunset,
Remember when you met.
There will be storms but search for the rainbow.
Let love glow. From blessings to hardships.
You still came home on your trips.
There will be trials, but look up to the stars.
Treat yourself to chocolate bars.
On days you feel empty, remember I made it past eighty. Look around, and
there will be a sign.
Angels around you; are elegant and divine.
Believe in heaven because that's where I am.
Number seven, that's where I am.
Now I have to let go; now I have to let go,
I'll visit you in your dreams.
I'll visit in your dreams.
Like a movie, our memories will play, as I fade away.
Now her father went to sleep, loving her as God took him home.
Now her father went to sleep, as she waited by the telephone.
Her father lay there still, her daddy had fallen ill.
He opened his eyes as he hid his sorrow.
He looked at her husband and thanked him for her brighter tomorrow.
Hopeless, helpless, there he lies; everyone cries.
He left a mark, a mark on their heart; although they may have felt a world apart.
As he goes to heaven, as he leaves to heaven.
He found his peace, no more pain, his sense of release.
He gave you the tools to go on, the courage to be strong.
The torch is yours to hold now.
His life is in your son now.
Souls go, but their spirits stay. Cherish yesterday.
What is a teacher?
A teacher is someone who follows a similar career path to the one his parents raised him to pursue and wanted him to follow. A teacher is a loving devoted husband to his wife and a caring and loving father to his son—the latter role-models hospitality in everything he does in the education system.
A teacher is someone who took his son to work every day with him and his wife and raised his child alongside his community and coworkers, seldom missing a day, no matter how busy he was pursuing his career. This teacher and his wife created financial stability and security for their family.
Every day he was always there for his son! A teacher is someone who already has those characteristics in his own family and his morals, his own beliefs, and his core values. A teacher is someone who carries them into his teaching, giving every student, especially students who didn't have a father or students who had a bad father, an example of what a father should be. A teacher is someone who shapes and helps mold the next generation and generations to come.
What is a mentor?
A mentor is someone who allows those who graduated from the school he works in to come back and work in his classroom, molding their future and guiding them to be successful people. He gives them opportunities when their parents are going through hardships, giving them a sanctuary, a sense of peace, and an environment to learn community and grow into amazing adults with leadership qualities. This teacher helps turn the story around and helps the youth recover from their generational trauma. This teacher continues to help students find a life path they can heal in and help others heal in. He role models compassion, patience, understanding, commitment to his job, dedication to his family and community, and commitment to the future.
What is a life coach?
A life coach is someone successful in the eyes of everyone and has all the answers to life puzzles, and you can go to them whenever you need an advisor, and sometimes they don't even know they're a life coach because they do it for free, out of the goodness of their heart.
We don't praise teachers enough. We often forget how many sacrifices they make, and my parents have spoken highly of this teacher and his wife for over twenty years of my life.
My mom passed away in 2018; as my mom crossed over to the other side -- these are the things she has said about him and his wife. Now that my father has become a grandfather of a growing tribe. My father has always agreed with my mother on this teacher and his wife, who is also a teacher.
I don't know that a more beautiful, elegant, and deserving couple inside and out exists. My siblings and I are adults finding our career paths; this is the legacy my siblings have constantly said these teachers have left behind for who they've become in this life.
My siblings have all gone on to do great things!
