I remember you had a similiar problem during school break or maybe it was last summer. I would say that as a Mother we have to accept that our children do grow up and their decisions are not always what we had hoped for them but most important is for you and your daughter to remain close to each other. Also at stake is your daughter's happiness. You don't want to make her choose between you and her significant other. It will break both of your hearts as she obvously cares deeply for you or she would not have emailed.
I know a lot of your anxiety rises from your worries that your daughter is going to get hurt by this relationship and she may but you can only be there for her and support her.
Can you try the old staying in the moment and not anticipate what might happen. I love this writing so I am posting it for you.
Gentle Hugs to you.
Be at Peace
Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life;
Rather look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely
through all things;
And when you cannot stand it, God will carry you
in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
The same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you today and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you
unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace and put aside all anxious thoughts and
St. Francis de Sales
