Emma won! The posters were a hit, but I thought I must inform those who care. My mom and dad called yesterday morning from their vacation to see what happened with Emma's election. They figured since I hadn't called them yet that Emma must have lost. Actually she won, but it broke her little heart.
I was waiting in the house for Emma to walk down from the bus Fri. afternoon and as she walked through the door I yelled, "Well.................!" Emma's reply was soft and sad. "I won." and then she burst into tears. Her favorite friend was running against her and Taylor had not been chosen. I really think Emma would have felt better about Taylor winning. So for the next 15 mins. Emma and I hugged in the laundry room and cried for Taylor and her broken heart. I actually cried because of Emma's tender heart, and her compassion for a favorite friend. Man- I'm going to do better. I learn a lot from my kids. They're wonderful, and perfect, and beautiful. I not prejudice either. I'm more proud of Emma for her kindness than for her winning any popularity contest. The kindness will take her a lot farther in life than anything else she could ever achieve.
