I must be doing something right!

Happy Friday Everyone!! I can't believe how fast this week has gone by! So, my Daughter BriAnna has been bugging her father and I to let her switch schools for next year! She is not happy at her current school and really wants to go back to her old school! I explained to her it isn't that easy because the school bus won't take her to her old school and her father and I would have to come up with a plan to get her to and from school until she gets her licence to drive which is in a year! So I sat BriAnna down and asked her to give me reasons why she is Un-happy? Here is what I got..

1. Her.. I just miss my old friends.
Me.. Well make new ones!

2. Her... The people at my new school are mean.
Me.. Who's being mean to you?

3. Her.. All the girls are mean to me and I don't know why?
Me... Well Brianna when your friend Savanna was gone yesterday for lunch I asked you who you ate lunch with? and you said " Ian, Jason. Jared and Michel" That could be a reason why the girls don't like you. I know it's a stupid reason but maybe the other girls are jealous of you! I know your a sweet girl but maybe you haven't given them a chance to see that too! Unfortunately you are going to have that same problem no matter what school you attend because you've been blessed with beauty on the inside and out! You have to try harder to let people see the beauty you have on the inside too! Do you understand what I'm trying to say? Her response was " I do Mom". I told her that her father and I don't want you unhappy so if you feel that strong about changing schools then I will see what I can do!

A Few days later I come home from work to tell her that I did all the steps to try to choice her into her old school and the only thing left to do is to fax over the info, however it is not 100% guarantee that you will get in! The Principle has to go over it and approve it himself! At this point she was surprised that I went ahead and moved forward with letting her change! I can tell she was getting cold feet and she didn't know what to do now! So I told her to think about it and let me know!

Yesterday at work I get a text from her saying " Go ahead and fax the paper work mom."  I did as she asked but was concerned that maybe something happened at school to convince her to change. As soon as I got home she asked if I had indeed faxed it and I said "Yes I did, what made you decided to try to transfer?" She said " Well mom you said that it is sill not a guarantee that I will get in right? I figure I'm going to leave it up to God and if it's meant to be it's meant to be!

Tears fell down my face as I looked at her and told her how much I Loved Her!!!



  1. WOW!!! Yes, you most definitely are doing something right! What a proud mama you must be!

  2. What a blessing!!! She IS beautiful inside and out

  3. good luck to her, and God Bless!

  4. What a good momma and good role model you are for your darling! And you are right, she is beautiful inside and out!
