[DISCLOSURE:- THIS IS NOT AN OUTFIT POST – WELL…NOT REALLY!]
This past Friday, my husband and I had the priviledge of attending my oldest daughter’s Drum Majorette Awards Ceremony. I previously mentioned here that they’d won the President League South-African Championship and this was the formal ceremony to celebrate their victory as well as announce the new leader, sub-leaders and duals for the 2016 squad.
Back to the celebrations…
It was a beautiful evening and fun was had by all. Our girls looked amazing all dolled up in pretty dresses and heels (which was right up my 11yr olds alley) but seeing the pride on the girls’ faces as they received their awards is what really gave me the feels. The long hours, the tears, the sore feet, it all paid off, they truly are our champions!
The height of my evening is when my daughter was chosen as a sub-leader for 2016. I am the proudest parent alive! Anyone who knows us knows that this is a big deal for Amber. This sport has brought about so many positive changes in my Amber. Although she’s still quite shy (around others), her confidence has grown in leaps and bounds. She no longer suffers from anxiety and depression, she shows more self-discipline and she has such a passion for the sport that it often brings tears to my eyes.
So, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to her trainers for believing in her when she couldn’t believe in herself (even though I always did), for always pushing her to do more and be more, for seeing her through my eyes. Thank you, you’ve helped to mould this young lady I call my daughter!
Congratulations to the Grace Trinity Drum Majorettes and trainers for an outstanding achievment!
