She did it!!!!

Thursday, December 09, 2010

I am so very proud of my 14-year daughter, Rebekah-Dawn. She reached an amazing goal today. Back in July, our family was put in a situation that affected all of us. It was by no means a pleasant experience, but God continue to work all things for good. During this challenging time, both my daughter and myself resorted to food as comfort; she gained 18 pounds and I gained 10 pounds. Today she weighed in and has lost 15 pounds of that amount. I know that it's not been easy, especially through this Thanksgiving and Christmas season, but she was determined. Me, I've lost 2 pounds, but I am losing it, slowly and surely.

Her reward...she was allowed to get highlights (in her already beautiful red hair) today.

My reward...the blessing of having her as my daughter!

    Tambi, she is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I'm very, very partial to red-heads! emoticon I have TWO and when my first was born, the first words out of my mouth were, "He's got RED HAIR." I wanted ALL red-heads but 2 out of 8 is pretty good! emoticon I was VERY, VERY blessed by your last comment, "My reward...the blessing of having her as my daughter!" YOU are so, so special and such an AWESOME mother! emoticon
