“Twelve months ago, I started a course named T.A.E
Not really knowing what was in store for me
Two weeks of training was rolled into one
I thought what was I doing, what have I DONE?
All of a sudden, its units and numbers that we’re talking
Too much for me I thought and that’s when I started baulking
Is it for Me? Is this really what I wanted to do?
But I made a commitment, so I’ll try and see it through.
Sue (Hill) was great and helped whenever she could
“You have it in you, it’s there I know you’ll be good”
The type of support and belief that I would need
If this T.A.E thing is what I will succeed.
Work being full-on, I let it all fall on the wayside
To even attempt anything well, I really never tried
But life had its ways of turning things upside down
And time for giving is a good shot came back around.
Its time to really give this a really good sow
The hours, days and weeks they come, and they go
Someone else now has joined with me on this trip
Helen is her name and boy does she crack the whip.
Fairness, equity, mapping TLIF’s and BSB’s
And believe me there’s much more like these,
But with nothing to lose and yes so much more for me to gain
By doing what I love and helping all that I hope to train.”
