When my babies were little ones at home making messes and keeping me up at night I often wondered if I would ever get that "pay out". Would I ever see the results of trying to parent in a way that my children would know what it means to love one another even when it's difficult? Would the girls see my flaws instead of the love of Christ? Slowly but surely I have seen my girls grow into lovely young ladies who do love others and see goodness in this world. There are also times they fight and act selfish but that's not what this blog post is about today. :) I don't begin to take all the credit, without God and His Word to guide me I would be lost.
This week our youngest daughter came home with the Character Award from her school of about 700 students. There are 25 kids a quarter who earn this special honor. This is what her teacher wrote...
Olivia is new to Reeder this year and boy are we lucky to have her! Olivia has such a positive attitude about school. She is a great role model in our class. Olivia is always smiling and working hard. Awesome Job!
