    difficult child called me to tell me the good news. She had her three month review today and was told that she was doing a great job. They called her responsible, dependable, always willing to help others, and said that she takes initiative. They gave her a dollar an hour raise.

    difficult child got so emotional on the phone (in a good way). She was so proud of herself . . . she had never gotten a raise before.

    This job is so good for her. I am a happy mama tonight.

    Somehow, for ALL of our kids (difficult child or not), outside praise, validation, success is worth SO much.

    How wonderful Kathy! How often can any of us report that our difficult child's got a raise....not very often if ever. That has to be a big motivator for her. So glad to finally hear some good news. You must be feeling good right now.
