This picture has been sitting on desk for almost one year. I had no idea how to scrap it I saw this LO of Carrie and I knew it would work. It came out a little dark but is the best that I was able to do.The Journaling Reads: Dear Daniel,Words cannot express how very proud I am of you. When you walked up to get your award, I was filled with pride and joy knowing that my son had gotten recognition for a job well done. However, my pride is over shadow a bit by my knowledge of this little boy who just wants to get by. Just getting by is a horrible thing to be when you are an adult and if as a child you don’t try to achieve your greatest potential then as an adult you would never succeed. You know that had you taken pride in your work and gone that little extra step you would not only would have gotten the Gold Presidential Award but a 4.0 average. I know you think I ask for a lot but truly is just a little. God gave you a great gift of intelligence it is up to you to make that intelligence, work to your benefit. If you go through life just getting by then you will never be very successful Take pride in your work. Take charge of your life. And you will achieve greatness.
