I hope y'all don't mind sharing in my good news. A momma bear's gotta brag every once in a while.

I just attended my daughter's Awards Day, and she did it...she showed Cystic Fibrosis it WILL NOT win once again! She received the... (drum roll, please...)

Honor Roll Award!

This was a rough second semester, in the beginning, as she had to stay in the hospital 15 days for lung infections, and problems with CF, but I'm proud that she didn't throw in the towel.
The week before she went in the hospital, she won 1st place for Family project at her school's reading fair, and her project was on it's way to compete for the school district. Her project had to go on to the school district competition, because she could not get out of the hospital in time. She really needed to be there to speak to the judges about her project and her book, and answer questions, but CF won that round.
She won 2nd place at the school district reading fair, and a child from another school won 1st. The next step would have been regional, if she had made 1st, but I kept reminding her how awesome it was for her to get that far, as she never had before! She won 2nd place one year, and 3rd place one year, but never 1st place, or got to go to the next step!
And, in the spring, the PE teacher allowed her to be an alternate in the track meet, which I thought was wonderful. She insisted the whole family go, just in case she got to compete, but all of the children showed, so she wasn't needed that night, and they still let her sit with the team in the bleachers, anyway, until their turn to go to compete, which I later thanked the teacher for. I told her it meant a lot to us, that she got to still hang out with the team. (And, of course, she quickly ditched mom and dad.)
She auditioned in front of the music teacher, and some teachers, singing George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun" a capella a week ago, and was selected for the show choir at her school for next year. I told her a while back, to remember that she doesn't have to do things to make me happy, just do what she likes to do. I thought she had chosen to sing "Here Comes the Sun" because I like the Beatles. She said, "No, I want to sing this, because I saw the video on the internet with this song. Dad played it for me. " She's been talking about this all school year, so now she's really looking forward to next year.

And, now, this.

She also got the "Good Conduct" award. I told her, "well, that helps momma be able to sleep in peace at night, knowing that you're not a holy terror at school." She replied, "Well, you did tell me when I was in 1st grade that you were like the FBI, if I did something bad at school, you would know about it before I ever got home, because your phone was like the hotline, and you were the call center."
I told her, and it would do well for you to remember this, all they way through highschool as well.

REB, I always love your messages. We don't see enough of you on the board.

That's just marvelous about your DD. So nice that she's developing such strength of character when it would be so easy for her to just give up. Of course, with a mama like you, how could she not be a wonderful kid?

I'll be sure to let her know what you each said. She is such a fighter. I told her this afternoon when she came home, how proud I was of her again, and told her she should always remember to keep working hard, because nothing worthing having comes without hard work and determination. I thought she was going to squeeze the life out of me when I hugged her.
And, of course, paw paw called her by the time she was home, so he could congratulate her, which totally made her day!

Thank you again everyone. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
