Daughter is leaving home this coming weekend to live with her boyfriend and hopefully start up her own theatre company. She may well hate her father and I but at least since she's been back home she's managed to get and hold down a really good job and save money so I guess the experience hasn't been all bad.
Anyway, at last she's getting what she wants - a job on her own terms, her boyfriend and finally seeing the back of her family. Whatever she thinks we will still be here to offer what support we can if she needs it.
May God shine upon her and, like most parents, I hope she is happy and fulfilled.
