Let me remind you of the words to that song he would sing to you:
“There’s a light in you that tears me down to nothing. There’s an angel in your eyes. There’s a hope inside that you can make it better. You see right through my disguise. When it rains it pours, and everybody stumbles. I won’t let them bring you down. I won’t let you down when the seasons change. I won’t go down. I’ll fight through the pain. I’ll be there right by your side. I’ll never let them bring you down when the seasons change. There’s a hope in me that I will die for something. Was the fire in my eyes? All this pain inside … Will it be this way forever? I can run but I can’t hide. When it rains it pours, and everybody stumbles. I won’t let them bring you down. When the seasons change and we’re in for colder weather look for me on The Divide …”.
You see? None of this is about you.
It has NEVER been about you.
Not just your babies …
… all the lives you’ll have touched before your time is done … if only for a season.
Your greatest treasure and greatest triumph are in knowing just how insignificant you really are in the bigger scheme of things.
Your “valuelessness” is your greatest value!
Your “powerlessness” is your greatest power!
You are EVERYTHING!
Because you are NOTHING!
You’re NOTHING but a pebble, to be dropped into your ocean, making ripples and waves of outward change for everyone whose path you cross on your journey.
Your purpose is to keep working the roots of this new and healthy family tree you’re now growing — free from the black toxicity that suffocated and broke all the branches of the tree that we came from.
You’re doing a good job.
… and (PS) …
I love you! We got this! I WON’T LET YOU DOWN AS THE SEASONS CHANGE!
