Hi. The Day 10 prompt for today’s #BlogFlash2012 is Success. I had a choice of two true stories I could share with you for this prompt, one was a personal success and the other is the one I chose. I hope you enjoy it!
Dressed in a sparkling outfit, I put the finishing touches to my daughter’s hair and make-up for her first major freestyle dancing competition.
Her age group was called and split into heats – hers being heat one. I didn’t take my eyes from her as she flawlessly executed her routine in perfect time to the music, while judges looked on, noting their favourites.
I hugged her as she came off the floor, hoping for her number to be called for Round Two. They only needed twelve competitors.
Two faultless performances later and we waited with baited breath.
Her name was announced – she’d made it to the Nationwide Championships!
