About Time...

So, last year Sierra had a year from hell after her breakup with that dirt bag Scott. For about 8 months, she was depressed, bawling often, etc. She FINALLY came out of it about 5 months ago and has been doing great. For the first 2 weeks of summer, she had a couple random dates...but nothing worth anything. Then 2 weeks ago, she met Patrick, "Pat". He is also going to be a senior this year, but goes to a private boarding school in New Hampshire (about 2 hours away). His parents are very successful here in town. He is SOOOO likable, well mannered, proper and he treats Sierra LIKE GOLD!! He has picked her up in the morning and brought her to his house to cook her breakfast (!) , he's taken her to lunch, to dinner, brought her to the lighthouse to eat bagels, has met my curfew restrictions each time, insists on walking her to the door each time he brings her home, talks with ME for 20 minutes each time, and genuinely seems to ADORE my daughter. SHE is blown away and thinks he can't possibly be real. She's seeing how it feels to be treated like she deserves to be ! They are together nearly EVERY MINUTE that they aren't at work (they both are working a lot this summer). Yesterday, I had said they couldn't go out after his work b/c she'd been out w/him until 11:30 for 4 nights in a row and I was exhausted from staying up. SO, knowing he couldn't see her at night, he woke up at 7:30 in the morning to come get her and spend time w/her before work...then stopped by for 5 minutes after work to give her a hug. He's told her he's never felt this way about anyone...thinks about her all the time...and she feels the same way. WHO KNOWS where it'll go...but he is SO good TO and FOR her self-esteem...I'm thoroughly enjoying every minute of watching her smile. I am THRILLED that she is seeing she DESERVES to be treated like gold. She's going to a dinner and movie w/him tonight and to Martha's Vineyard with him tomorrow. She texted me earlier to tell me they are "officially dating now". :) I'm so very happy for her, it's about time my girl shows her beautiful smile :)
