My mom did something amazing for me today! She handed me a cheque to cover the cost of joining the dragon boating team we have been rowing with and told me to sign my husband and myself up. She said me that she is proud of me for losing the weight and for keeping it off… I was so touched to hear her say that! Her overwhelming generosity is certainly welcome and appreciated, but so, too, are her words of encouragement. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful mother!
So, it appears that the decision has been made for me. We will, indeed, be joining the dragon boating team and I am very excited by that! Last time we were there my husband remarked to the coach that I was doing awesome at picking it up and the team leader seemed to be pretty emphatic about agreeing with my man. I’ve never felt like I was really good at any type of sport, so this is all totally alien to me… but it does feel great to think that I am actually contributing to the team efforts. I can’t wait to officially sign up!
