To say the least, I was not thrilled when my daughter dropped out of school to discover herself.
She ended up getting a flat in the city plus made all kinds of friends that were using drugs.
She fell out of contact with my husband and I. Everytime we called her, she didn’t pick up. For a while, I began to wonder if I’d ever hear from her again. At this point, I was more concerned with her safety than anything else. My expectations of a college degree were long gone. After numerous years of not knowing what was going on with my daughter, eventually I heard a knock on the door. I was shocked to see her, but I immediately began to cry and wrapped her up in my arms. We sat down, ate dinner, and had a long talk about what had been going on with her. Her siblings were not as forgiving as I was at that moment, but it’s a mother’s instinct to love her children. I wasn’t capable of holding a grudge or risking pushing her away with anger. She kept saying how nice the air quality plus temperature control settings were in the house. I told her I had just had a UV air purification installed by our local Heating plus A/C company. It was kind of like a light went off in her head at that moment. She said she regularly loved working on things when she was younger, plus she thought it would be a fantastic program to be a Heating plus A/C serviceman. I thought it was a brilliant program and I offered to pay for her certification classes. She accepted and was so grateful to have the opportunity to get her life back on track and mend the relationship with our family. That was two years ago. Now my daughter is thriving in her HVAC career, and we are all closer than ever. What started off as disappointment has led my girl exactly where she needed to be.
