Ty, You Make Me Proud!

If I haven't told you this already, I love my son to bits. And I'm so very proud of him. Every time I see him, my heart could burst with pride & joy. I thank the good Lord for him everyday of his life!

He recently competed in AWANA Bible Quizzing and got a perfect score. This past Thursday, he was in a school concert as a narrator. He did an excellent job there too. And I am not even biased :P We have a video and I'll get that up on YouTube for friends & Family later. His principal told me later if Ty were to become a famous news anchor or talk show host or something in that effect, I should not forget that he started out at Nieman Elementary School. I just said "thank you" and gave him this great, big, huge smile. But my heart was about to burst from pride :) Many thanks to Linda E., Jack & Donna W. for the honour you gave us by being at the concert and for your love and support. It was so good and kind of you to be there.

So, I made him this card to tell him how proud I am of him. Inside though, I did mention that no matter how good he is at anything, it's because of God in him. He needs to trust in the Lord with all of his heart and do not lean on his own understanding. And in all his ways, he should acknowledge God and God will make his paths straight! That was straight out of the book of Proverbs 3:5-6. Although I'm so proud of him when he has accomplished so much, I am most proud when I hear his teachers say what a sweet boy he is or when he is being kind and protective of a classmate who has Down Syndrome. Well, enough of the proud mum moment.

This card uses the String You Along technique from the TJ Newsletter, Feb '09 issue. Main image stamp is from High Hopes Stamps. Sentiment is from . Main image was coloured in with Copic pens.


Thanks for reading this far. It's a long post. Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!
