As I opened the yellow communication booklet from the girls' school, I was expecting yet another piece of instruction or 'homework' for the parents to do with the kids. To my surprise, I saw a wonderful description of my elder girl's performance during the first week of school. My eyes nearly teared at the realisation that the little girl who made me cry on a daily basis in past is now making my heart swell with pride.
While I need to remind and coax the brother to do his homework, Jayna is the one who asks me if she could do her homework and insists on nothing but perfection in her work. Even though the brother obliges me when he is asked to do his chores, Jayna offers to help on her own initiative.
Looking at her marvelous growth, I can only be humbled and awed by the power of God which has transformed her inside out. She is truly a beautiful princess of God with a beautiful heart. And she might just be the high achiever in the family!
