„So if you are doing all you can, I want you to know I'm proud of you!“

—  Ysabella Brave American singer 1979

"I'm Proud of You!" (4 June, 2008) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_v0lmI_9m9M
Context: So rare that we are told that we are doing just great, and good enough. So if you are doing all you can, I want you to know I'm proud of you! And I wanted to pass that along. And I hope you feel it, and that you know you're doing ok, 'cause you know. Despite what everyone else is saying, you'll know, and I hope you do!
