I've been thinking a lot lately. Trying to keep things in perspective. Trying to take hold of the proper view on life, love, faith, trust. And Pixie Dust. I always have to add that part...because I'm longing for simpler days in the midst of these 7th grade challenges, that rise up like a dragon, breathing hell -fire and leaving me feeling small. And like not such a great mama. I'm just a mom who has no idea what she's doing and I am leaning hard on a mighty God because I have no. Other. Plan. I mean that seriously. Got nothing. No back up plan. No great mom history. No legacy of mamas who love God behind me. But a great God who loves me and this little family. So I look back and remember when she was small. Even then she wanted to rule the world. EVen then she wanted to be the boss. Be in control. Be pushing the stroller, not in it. Mama needs to climb into that stroller and remember who is in control of all. And I do. Lord, help me. I do. But thanks for the daily reminders. Because I guess I need them.
Below is one of my favorite songs from one of my Girl's favorite Disney movies Peter Pan (Return to Neverland). It is called I'll Try by Jonatha Brooke. It is actually on my wedding favor CD. It's about 5 minutes, because she describes how the song came to be...I hope you will take a moment to listen.
It came to my memory as I wrote this morning.
