I fell behind by a couple of days. I had the topic for each day chosen, but then never got around to writing for that day. Going to try and play catch up tonight.
Tuesday, April 4th was the day for letter C. I had decided that C stands for Courage this week and wanted to write about my daughters.
Both of them have shown courage in the past few years. Sarah left home to attend college even though she didn’t want to and was worried about being away from home. While she had a rough start, she didn’t give up, ending up finding her own way in college and is graduating in just a month and a half. Once she finishes her internship this summer she will be looking for a job and moving on to the next stage of her life. Yes, she showed courage to deal with life changes and move on to the next step. I know from conversations that we have had, that she is more than ready to move on again. Courage helped her grow into the wonderful young women that she is today.
Kristen has been demonstrating courage this week. High school life is full of drama and sadly life isn’t always full of good times and things, but sometimes the bad seems to come and at times the kids feel like the bad will never go away. Kristen has continued doing what she needs to do and has not asked to stay home, she is still struggling with a few personal situations and it breaks my heart to see her facing these problems, handling them well and knowing that sometimes you have to go through the fire to become a better more refined person. Courage is helping her grow to the fine young lady she is on her way to becoming.
