I like this quote.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
I am certainly not belittling my son. Never will I do that. I just find the power of the force working alongside my boy that he is able to reach his goals. More than good luck though, he truly and deeply works hard to be at his place. He is his class’ first honors and recipient of six academic excellence awards.

I thank the Lord for giving us a responsible Firstborn. He excels in class, and just this Wednesday he got a bronze medal for being Grade Five’s top three. He also brought home a Best in Civics award.
I often tell myself that should Firstborn focus more on his studies, he would have been his class’ first honors. He has the ability to be one. He has such an analytical mind. He uses his imagination to run through how some things may play out. He has the focus if he wants to. It is just that most of the time, he prefers to chill out.
And then, when we went on stage to receive his recognition, I had my realization. I don’t know if it’s too late for me to have that realization but still, I’m happy that I was able to recognize a fact about my son.
Firstborn is one carefree person. He is full of love and happiness. I need not push him too hard as he might have the tendency to rebel or meet neither success nor happiness. He is moved by his love and of that interests him. He needs not absorb everything as this might defeat his true identity.
I’ve seen how he reacted when he had those medals. He was very happy.. and proud! He glanced back at me so he could remember my smile. And he couldn’t wait to show to his papa his medals. Because it has always been love and happiness that push him to act.
As for this mother, I am now at ease to know that my Firstborn is one playful son with great intelligence. I am confident that with all these achievements, he will be able to know his strengths and realize who he is becoming through the process.
