Bawling and Remembering What’s Important
Yesterday was rough.
I was cranky, the kiddos were still off-kilter from the lack of schedule over Yule and Christmas, the house was a mess…
Last night I was able to “gear down” and plan today and remind myself to respond not react.
This morning was a little bit of a challenge, as I woke up with a very distracting headache, but one of my kids helped me SO much by playing this song for me. It’s one I really like to listen to when I need to remember my priorities; I like to listen in the mornings, or when things get rowdy.
From what I understand, “Ronan” was a little boy who died of cancer and Taylor Swift wrote this song after reading his mom’s blog. I cry every. single. time I hear it, but it’s so good for me. I really cannot imagine going through watching your child die, and I want to see the precious in every minute I get with mine – even the hard ones!
