Today was my last PTA Board meeting as President. Though I still have one General Association meeting in May, it feels like the end. I can almost feel it. Tonight was a special night. I treated my Board to dessert and door prizes as a thank you for a job well done! It was the last meeting of the year and unbelievably - almost everyone came!
Two years ago, I was nervous and unsure about being President. I felt under qualified and I was scared of the conflicts that usually occur when you have 27 women in one room. Dealing with girl fights is not one of my strengths. But my Board has been unbelievable! I have been surrounded by some very talented, wonderful, giving, Christian women this year. They understand that we serve - not to be seen - but just to serve. We serve for our own kids, but for also for the other kids. The kids whose moms work hard all day and can't come to every event. It seems like every time I am at school, I get smiles, waves and hugs - some from kids I have never noticed before. That's why we serve.
Thank you to my Board - my friends. It has been a pleasure!
