As I was driving home last week and flipping through the radio stations, I came across a song I hadn't heard in years. It was a song that I'd dedicated to my daughter, Grace, in her baby book shortly after her birth.
It reminded me of another song that I'd dedicated to my first daughter, Rose, in her baby book.
Now, I'm not into sappy music... but when I listen to either of these songs, it brings back all of that emotional overload of holding a precious new life in my arms. And each song makes me cry. Every. Single. Time.
I'm still amazed, when I look at the lyrics to Rose's song and Grace's song, the words apply SO much to their personalities.
I'm also reminded of a brief but telling conversation with Rose in the car last week:
Rose: Mommy, do you think that music speaks to you? That it has a mood?
T: Yes. Absolutely.
R: Me too.
T: Of course you do. You are my child.
R: I'm not YOUR child. I'm God's child. And you are too. In fact, all of us are.
T: Good point. And very well said, sweet girl.
I love my girls...
Are there any songs that move you in that way?
