She graduated with honors this past Sunday, and gave one of the commencement addresses. She spoke beautifully about the need to face any challenge with the belief that one is good enough to succeed. She challenged all her classmates, and the rest of us too, to always answer "Yes, I am good enough" when confronted with whatever life throws at us.
I am so, so proud of this strong, confident, accomplished and compassionate young woman!
She is now at a new-to-her summer camp as a camp counselor until she starts university in the fall, putting her own advice into practice as she embraces new adventures and makes new friendships.
As for my slump? I am telling myself I am good enough to finally start things I have been avoiding, and I suspect getting past those will re-energize me to get more productive in the sewing room and socializing in blogland again. See you again soon!
