It was during parents’ evening when my daughter’s primary school teacher turned to me and said, ‘Everything you do with your daughter and all the places you travel to, just shine from her”. I am constantly struck by what a lovely thing it was to say and every now and again, have to confess getting bleary-eyed when recounting her kind words because as a single mother, I am pretty tough on myself.
I always worry the love of one parent is somehow not quite, enough. I may make bold statements saying I have enough love to give for both a mummy and a daddy but I never quite believe it myself. However, that may well be another story…Let’s go back to the stuff shining from my child. The said ‘stuff’ is – travel.
