less of myself

I have a hard time saying statements like "I am a good student" or "I am a good cook" or "I am a good friend". When i really start thinking about it just takes practice. E swears he's never eaten a meal that i've cooked that he didn't like but I think he's the most forgiving, forgetful person i know. 
I remember bread that would not rise, stew that i tried to rush and fish that stuck to the pan because i didn't know how to cook. not really. But i'm drawing a line with this one. i'm at that place where i can ad-lib a recipe and it turns out great. Where something is not quite right or needs something and i can figure it out on my own. 
 I made chicken korma and fresh naan the other day only kind of using the recipe. it was fab and tasted like home. And those rolls and that soup. typical sunday at our place. 
and this tart? Tasty. So i'm calling it. I can cook. It took practice and i didn't really notice that i was slowly but surely getting better. I'm better. I'm going to try and apply this lesson to other life things. Like school, and friends, and excercise, and creative writing and many other little things.

Amy, You are a great cook and you do a lot of other things really well, as well like scrapbooking and I know that you are great as a friend to those that know and love you.You are also a great student, just look at the marks that you are attaining. You are working and going to school and getting great marks. I am very proud of you and all that you have accomplished. We all go through times when we doubt our abilities. I know that there have been many times that I have doubted my own abilities. Heavenly Father knows you and loves you just the way you are. Life is for learning and we all learn in steps. Sometimes small steps sometimes large steps. You are doing fantastic. Sure love you. Mom
