Growing up, my dad often referred to a "victory log" whenever we encountered a proud moment. He encouraged us to write big moments down, as a way for us to look back on where we've been. Victory logs remind us of who we are. They tell us that we mean something, that we're going somewhere.
But words can't really do justice to the progress these girls are making right now! Instead, I put together a (very humble, very amateur, very short) video. Chris and I have never really listened to Mumford & Sons before, but he's working on one of their tunes for church. It was playing in the background when he captured some of this footage on his phone. The lyrics are pretty perfect, huh?
This is for your victory log, sweet sisters.
Someday, this will remind you of who you are.
This will remind you that mean something, that you're going somewhere.
Because you do. And you are.
