She has passed another milestone, and moved a little forward into the future. When you are young, the milestones come fast and furious. She is happy and excited a the moment. For myself... I don't know.
There are a lot of feelings and thoughts. I wonder where all the time has gone, how it all passed so quickly. There were so many things I wanted to do, but there was never time nor money. It was my job to give her a good example. Was it good enough?
One way or another, ready or not, she will now have to find her own way, and she will be free, as I was, to make her own mistakes, and free to learn what lessons she will, and bear the consequences. I cannot and I will not choose her path for her. I pray she finds a good one, that God guides her first fumbling steps.
