Celebrate Success!

This evening my daughter received a certificate: 'Celebrating Success Awards'. It was a big deal for her and she was terribly anxious.. However she determinedly and independently (with a little prompting and lots of time ) dressed herself in the new outfit I had got her for the occasion. She overcame her fears and entered a smart hotel event room full of lots of people. She is very proud but keeps asking; 'Why did they say all those nice things about me?'. We were supported by her fantastic teacher and her lovely brother. A few things it says on her certificate:
'she has completely blossomed', 'her warm bubbly personality', 'her school are very proud of her, she is an asset to us, good fun and a joy to have around'. I am so proud of her, she is exhausted, stayed up way past her normal bedtime. I am sure this achievement will further boost her self esteem and confidence.
