Where are you? What are you doing? You have to go look this song up on YouTube and listen to it right now! No. You have to listen to it right now while I'm on the phone! I was listening to it and when I heard it I told Decent Guy,
I think this is MY SONG. For the way I used to be.
Then I realized,
My oldest daughter has come a long way since she was a teenager. I think she carries a burden of guilt that is not necessary. The past is past. She is self aware now instead of self concious. I am indescribably proud of her. But, like her mother, there are things she does not know how to say out loud. Her feelings a giant boulder she cannot lift at once. Instead She finds pebbles along the way and drops them as markers on the path to her heart.
Blogger still hasn't given this post or the first comments on it back yet and I'm tired of waiting so I am doing it myself!
Comments made before the end of the world as we know it:
Oh. Wow. It must be amazing to reach that point in your relationship with your child. Happy Pebble Day.
Me: Allison, Happy Pebble Day: ) I like it!
Dropping pebbles is good starting point. The farther we travel from our past, the easier it gets to drop boulders. At least for me.
Me: true! I think that's what I'm doing with these blogs.
Allison always beats me here and says exactly what I would have said if I was wicked smart and had awesome curly hair. So, what Allison said.
Me: Yes! Allison is Awesome and So Are You. And I know. I wish I was wicked smart and had awesome curly hair like Allison too!
Great Song! I'm thinking it's difficult for us to let go of the past sometimes though. Your daughter is finding a way. Good for her!
Me: I love the song. It's so appropriate she could she have wrote it.
Help! Mama Remote...
I think its a precious thing for a child to recognize they gave their parents trouble in their youth. I also think they turn out to be some of the greatest adults :)
Me: Help Mama: Nicole: I think you are 100% right!
OK you've given me goosebumps. How beautiful.
You're also giving my hope that my girl will one day be able to drop some pebbles herself.
Me: I'm sure she will : )
