Congratulations Danielle....

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts...

When it comes to my nieces and nephews I am biased. Yes, completely so.  When it comes to giving them credit with credit is due I am totally all for it

My niece Danielle just got the most awesome news any soon to be college kid would want.  She was just awarded a full 100% scholarship covering 4 years of college food, boarding and even travel expenses for every year!

She gets the news and what does she do?  She says, no big deal mom."

Well it definitely is a HUGE deal.  Her parents are still in awe of the news.  Arvid and I are always in awe of this girl.

Arvid always says, "Danielle is cool.  I like her style.  She is something else."  That she is and I am absolutely proud to be her aunt.

I am proud of all my nieces and nephews. Each and everyone of them is amazing!
We love you all.

You know when something feels so good but you're afraid to feel good about it? So you kinda hold back? Everyone says, Congratulations, you must be so happy. And you say something stupid like, I'm just doing what little I can with what little I have.
