LSNE - 26th September

My daughter and her boyfriend flew to Melbourne today - her first major trip by herself (well almost by herself).   She's been overseas before with school groups which were fully chaperoned and strictly supervised but this was a trip on their own, by train, plane and negotiating a strange city.

Part of me rejoices in her maturity and in the fact that she is growing and pulling away from us as she increases her independence.  The other part of me is sad because as much as I love her and want her to be independent it is sometimes hard for a Mother to let go.
