“Is this a good thing?”

January 16, 2010

A letter arrived in the Sparky mailbox today, addressed to the 18-year-old Sparkette.  It was from the local college she where she just finished her first semester.

I called her in to get it and she came in looking concerned.  She opened it and read it, still looking concerned.

“It says I’m on the Dean’s List?” she said in a confused voice.

“Awesome!  Way to go!” I said, lifting my hand for a high five.

She slowly lifted her hand to mine, eyeing me suspiciously.

“Is…this…a good thing?” she asked.

“It’s a great thing!” I replied.  “It’s like being on the honor roll.  A high honor roll!”

“Oh!” She let out a deep breath, visibly relieved.  “I thought maybe I was in some sort of trouble!”

It may take a while for the Sparkette to get used to this new season in her life.  Good things are happening for her, and I’m really proud of her for persevering.
