I'm a Proud Mama Because...
Future FBI makes A's and the occasional B in school. She does her homework without being told to do it, she pushes herself to learn new things, and she loves to read. This year at the talent show, she was brave enough to stand up and sing. There's no way I would have been brave enough to do it, but she was! This is another reason I'm a proud Mama. During basketball season, we are busy running her from game to game. She shows great sportsmanship and plays with her whole heart. On the evenings that her team loses, she still congratulates the other team and also tells her team not to get down on themselves, that they played a great game. I've seen other players get mad, fight, throw things, and refuse to speak after ball games. I'm a proud Mama because my daughter is a good sport.
When my daughter was 10, she became a Christian and was baptized. She made the decision on her own, and she can explain the Bible and quote some scripture as well as any adult. This makes me very proud! Earlier this year, we lost Papa, my grandpa, her great-grandpa, after a short battle with cancer. She was grieving, BUT, she was more mature than most. She focused on her great-grandma and stayed by her side during the funeral, and has been there with her almost every weekend since. Although she misses Papa, my daughter will tell you that she knows she will see him again one day and that she is glad he's not in pain anymore. She says she is taking care of Grandma for Pa. This makes me a proud Mama too.
