Day 12 - What made you dance, what made you weep?

Her first year at uni was a tough one. It is heartbreaking to see your child unhappy in what they are doing. No matter how old they are. She put on a brave face, went to her lectures and did what was necessary to get through the year.

And at the end of it all, she announced that she was taking a year off. She has a job at an outdoor ed centre.

Wow, that's really big.

Every possible case scenario ran through my head. From bush-fires to some horrid chainsaw accident. (As opposed to her nice cushy city life). But I knew it was the right choice for her. 

To see how happy it has made her, and too see her grow and extend and feel so good about her life and her surroundings. She has had a wonderful year, and I am so glad that she has had this wonderful opportunity.
