My sister is at university, achieving what I never did (yes I’m a dropout). I’m so proud of her, and love her so much, it hurts to hear her bad news. She may have to alter the direction of her course as she can’t get to do one of the modules she really wanted to do. And I’m powerless to help her. I reassure myself that she is smart, kind and will have a good life no matter what it throws at her, the attitude she has is a gift, and it will get her through most things.
But I just want to give her a hug.
