Blubbery Mess

Okay! I am a blubbery Mess. When Shawn won the gold medal I was relieved that she would finally get what she deserves! But then when they said her parents have more then once mortgaged their house to keep her in gymnastics I LOST IT! I can relate as a mother. I just hope that as my kids grow up I can be as in tune with my kids to find that "thing" they are made to do. That I find it and back them 100% as Shawn's parents did! These parents deserve gold medals as well. I admire Micheal Phelps mom. Add I know behind most gold winners their are similar stories. I want to see my daughter smile, n beam, as Shawn did as she triumphantly waved to the crowd and listened to the National Anthem of the United States of America! I want Alicia to find something to be proud of, something God has made her for. O, I am a blubbery mess and you all got to be a part of my mess on paper. I think it is the lack of sleep from watching Olympics every night for way too long. They are too blame for the emotional state they have thrown me into!

Silly girl!

Haven't watched nearly as much, as we are trying to get ready for the school schedule and earlier morns and less late nights....blah!

I am so glad that she won! What did she win it in?? We dont have TV right now so I am ticked that I did not get to see it. Thanks for keeping me posted.

I too have been up late too much and at that exact moment was in tears at the idea of this average midwestern couple who has mortgaged their home multiple times watching their teen daughter represent the country and win gold.

I loved it.
