Everyone deserves the chance to fly!
This weekend we went to see the Broadway Musical 'Wicked' as part of my plan to add more enjoyment into life. It was such a great play and there is something really special about sharing these experiences with my daughter and creating forever memories.
I think the song "Defying Gravity" could be my daughter's theme song ~ it is about taking chances and not playing by the rules of someone else's game or accepting limits. I admire that about her. From a mother's perspective, it can be scary sometimes but I still think it's much better than living life in fear and not taking chances. She's only nineteen years old and already she has participated in a 6-month volunteer program; she has traveled to many areas of Canada as well as South America, the United Kingdom and Europe. Her world is so different than mine was when I was that age.
Sometimes it seems like our roles are reversed because it feels like I learn more from her than she could ever learn from me. Who knows, maybe some day I too will try defying gravity? It's not too late even for me. Certainly I am blessed beyond words to have her in my life and all I ever hope for is for her to be happy and have all she's ever wanted.
