Listen, I know I've been pretty whiny lately.
I'm too busy.
People annoy me.
I don't get any free time.
Waaah, waaah, waaah.
But there is a bright spot in my day. In fact, in every single day. My daughter.
Colleen has been under a boatload of pressure lately. My reasons to whine have been miniscule compared to hers. But does she whine? No.
This girl has had some great days this fall. But last week she had some really tough times at school and in sports. Yet in her typical fashion, she simply picked herself up, dusted herself off, and kept at it. And she did it cheerfully. (Ok, you can all stop wondering if she and I share the same genes. I wonder that often enough for all of us.) Well, today her accomplishments made headlines in the newspaper.
She's my hero.
