I hope you dance…

Day 4~ A song that makes you sad

Some of these topics in the 30 day {yes, I’ve obviously dragged mine out} are slightly redundant.  I’ve already posted a song that I listen to when I’m sad so I’m not quite sure why we’d need to embellish on another song that makes you sad.  But mine is not to question the topic, just write the post and so I shall.

I Hope You Dance is a song written from a parent to a child & the lyrics never fail to make my eyes tear up until they spill.  Becoming a mom was one of the greatest blessings I’ve ever been afforded.  I hope so much for my kids and strive to be the mom that they need me to be.  This song captures so perfectly captures what I wish for Emma & Gerrit but it also reminds me of the immense task of teaching them these lessons.  I struggle with how to accomplish it.  Wanting them to become strong but also wishing they never feel the pain of loss.  Teaching them to be appreciative but spare them from going without.  Showing them that life is a treasure while shielding them from death.  It’s hard.  Wanting so much for them but realizing that I can only grow them so much but they must bloom on their own.

And so this song makes me cry… for all that I hope for them to keep, all that I know they must gain and for all I wish them to become.
