Over the years I begged, pleaded and then finally gave up on my son ever getting his eagle. Nothing worked. Then a neighbor talked to him and something clicked in his head and he was on fire and determined to earn it. The determination continued until the last few minutes where he could submit his papers–minutes before midnight on his eighteenth birthday everything aligned up.
We recently had his court of honor and I got to beam the proud mother smile.
How many of you have given up on something and then in the midnight hour things turned around? How many of you had an experience where a neighbor turned everything around? I would love to hear your comments.
