My Majorette

CMS Majorette tryouts were yesterday.  Mary Ashtyn twirled during the 2011 season and tried out for her second year.  She worked so hard all week and I am so proud of her determination.  Right after tryouts started, she texted me in a panic to say that she had dropped on two of her tricks.  She got to do them again and caught them, but she was very upset.  I've watched her catch them time and time again all week, so I knew it had to be her nerves.  I told her to calm down and relax so that she could get through her two routines.  Of course, I was a nervous wreck by this time and started praying that God would calm her down. 

After what seemed like a few years, I got another text letting me know that she had done great on both routines with NO drops.  I texted back to tell her that I knew she could do it and that I'd been praying.  Her sweet response..."I prayed too and it worked!  I felt Him with me the whole time".  My friend was reading the text with me and we both got teary eyed.  I told her that was all that really matters!!  Of course, I want my sweet girl to be able to do anything she wants; but the most important thing is her daily walk with Christ.  Seeing her grow in her faith means more than anything!!

So, is Mary Ashtyn a 2012 CMS Majorette??   YES, she is!  Very proud of my girl for so many reasons.
