Wiedziała, że ten dzień, ta radość, nie będą trwały wiecznie. Wszystko przemija. I dlatego życie jest takie piękne. Pewnie wkrótce będzie musiała się zmierzyć z jakimiś problemami.

Wiedziała już teraz, że zawsze jest nadzieja, światełko w tunelu - nawet pośród ciemności, strachu, pośród największych głębin. Zawsze jest słońce, po które można sięgnąć, i powietrze, i przestrzeń, i wolność. Zawsze jest jakaś droga, którą można pójść, zawsze jest jakieś wyjście. I nie trzeba się bać.
