This morning I woke up at 6am to find Elizabeth sitting eating her breakfast all dressed and ready to leave for her exam. She has to be at university by 7.30am and with the morning traffic wanted to leave early enough so she did not have to rush. I am so proud of her, she is always so responsible and mature and when I see her at moments like this, I see a young woman now - not a little girl.
Not only is she doing really well at university, but she is also holding down a very successful part-time job at our local newsagency. She is so well-liked by the local people that they all chat to her whenever she is out of work. I am a very proud Mother and wish my beautiful Grown-up Girl a successful exam. She has worked hard and deserves it.
