As mothers, we all have times where we feel like our families and our children are not doing well enough. Often as moms, we can also feel like we are failing. Then something happens out of nowhere or someone tells us something that becomes our mom’s proudest moment.
I always remind myself as a mom, to appreciate little things. I always make sure that I teach my children that if they put their minds to it, their dreams will come true.
Two of my proud moments today
My oldest son had his photography featured in Washington DC. This picure was taken on his Iphone 6s. His passion has always been photography. This image was taken at random as we were walking in the park. His teacher was really interested in his work at his High School photography class and told him he had potential for his work. At the end of the year he submitted his photo to the Congressional Art Competition by Congressman Ed Case. He didn’t expect anything but the teacher congratulated him when he got to school and told him that he had won. My oldest son was always a good student and was on the roll of honors, but he was shy, so I was shocked that he could break out of his shell. I am so proud of him. We got him his own DSLR camera this Christmas, and he will be able to focus more on his photography after this pandemic ends.
On the other hand, my second to the older son has hit Platinum Record on his song called “Before I die” you can listen to it here https://soundcloud.com/larcope/before-i-die. I’m so proud of this young man, even after people made fun of him and told him he would never make it far he didn’t give up and kept trying. With his determination, I know he will go far. Maybe someday his name will be known like Tupac, Eminem. We will just have to wait and see..
