...at an alarming rate.
This beautiful capable young girl turned eleven today.
She's a complex child.
Yet rather self-doubting.
She is the first child I will ask to do a job knowing there will be no whining, no complaint, just a completed task.
She has a natural affinity with animals. And after a weekend spent with her father at a dog-training school, she is now even more driven. Her pup Ruby has all the makings of a great working dog, and Sarah and her are quite a team.
Eleven years ago, as I sat in a hospital bed and marvelled at the ruby-lipped princess in my arms, I could not have wished for more. Could not have wished for a greater journey, a greater teacher than this first-born, this Sarah.
