A Mother's Addiction: A MAID is Born
All I can say is that you seasoned MAIDs have been holding out on the rest of us. I never thought I could be happier for someone else’s success than I am for my own. As I sat on the edge of my seat at the Crossroads, Utah Feis (Power Academy) last Saturday, waiting for the results of the Reel Special, I was much more nervous for my son than I ever am for myself. And when they announced my son’s name to receive a trophy, I was so happy that I had to refrain from an impromptu jig!
Competing alongside my son opens up a whole new world, one filled with more joy and, yes, more stress than I would ever have experienced had I danced alone.
