Yesterday was "Formal Day" at a place that my daughter takes some classes, so she got into the spirit of it and put on this beautiful dress a friend had given her and added lots of "bling" to complete the look. When I dropped her off for her first class, we did not see one other girl wearing a formal dress. In fact, we did not see any girls wearing dresses at all! They were all wearing jeans! Oh, no!
She didn't have time to change, so Kate held her head high and walked into class. I waved to her, drove away and quickly called my husband to tell him to join me in praying for her! Junior high can be rough and kids are sometimes not very kind to someone who looks different. My daughter already is on the shy side and does not like to stand out in a crowd, so I was hoping this would not negatively affect the way she feels about herself.
When I picked her up, she was all smiles. She had received lots of compliments on how pretty she looked and, although she was the only one dressed up in her first class, there were lots of other girls dressed in formal wear in her next class. Whew!
Thank you, Lord!
