Wonderfully written and tenderly expressed first post from you. I knew you could do it!! It is never easy to step aside and watch our children make their own mistakes and learn for themselves, but there is no other way. All you can do is be there for the sweet one you write of. She is a gem and has more support than you think. Love her, dry her tears, and help her learn, Mom. She is an angel among us I know. You have done a great job here with the writing and your daughter.
HUGS to you both,
Poetry should surprise by fine excess...it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts and appear almost a remembrance. -J.Keats
