We spent the better part of the past weekend with our daughter in Louisiana. Although she will not graduate until December, this was her final Phi Mu Carnation Ball (her sorority formal) as an active member. Last year we came to the formal (parents are invited for the dinner and awards then “dismissed” before the real party!) and loved watching our girl help run the show in her role as Vice-President and receive the Outstanding Active Award. This year was even more amazing. We got to see her function in the role of President and I could see some new poise that hadn’t been there a year ago. And then of course what a joy to hear her name called as the winner of the Sisterhood Award for this past year.
Did I mentioned she looked beautiful, too? We had a great evening, but more than that, we had a great few days visiting with our girl and enjoying the young woman she has become. What a blessings it is to see how God has chiseled my impulsive tomboy into a confident and strong young lady.
