Saturday Musings - I've Crossed A Line

Yesterday, I crossed the line of no return. I sometimes wonder what it would be like if I could somehow undo what happened but then, with a smile on my face I really don't want to. You see, yesterday was the day when our youngest daughter turned eighteen and in Australia, became an adult.

I remember like it was only yesterday when I held her in my arms for the very first time. The wonder in her eyes as she looked around the hospital delivery room and then she finally fixed on my own.

Sarah is coming to the end of her course in specialist make-up (for movies and television) while maintaining a pretty full-on part-time job selling streetwear clothing. She’s killing her sales targets and is now one of the key members of the sales team.
