As I spent more time with Margaret, I realized that she was on her own personal journey as well. I watched her grow and blossom during the 10 days with all participants, from fairly reserved to totally involved. Margaret still sat quietly at times, just making her dreamcatchers, but she also joined others in the ‘gift-making circles’ that occurred more often as we had more free time. In addition, her lovely singing voice grew in strength and confidence as our Sunshine Coast Family sang and drummed songs together under our tent. I was honoured to be present as she shared many incidents from both her past and present that were shaping and defining decisions about her life path. She reclaimed her education goal while on this Pulling Together Journey. I know Margaret will do well on her continuing journey. She is a strong youth leader. I thank her for our time together.
