I am not a writer. In fact I struggle a lot on how to put on paper what I’m trying to express. I usually write how I speak- too fast and in spanglish… and yes, it’s a real language- ask my mom 😉 Thank goodness for my super brainiac hubby who proofs my posts so I can make sure they are legible!
I admire people who have a way with the written word, who can express their every thought or perspective, can make you feel sad/happy/energetic/love with mere words and who can sometimes make you feel like they are reading your mind and heart and are able to put it into words for you. Song writers are the best example of this for me. There are times when I hear the lyrics in a song and it seems like someone is feeling or has felt exctly what I am feeling and put it in a song. And when I hear that song , it’s usually at the perfect time.
I’ve been having a hard time this summer with my little man. Summers are usually a little tough because him and I are both creatures of habit and routine and summers don’t seem to have either of those. He’s basically like any other bored kid who needs to burn more energy than I seem to be able to keep up with but his special needs make it just a little harder than usual. I struggle with the frustration we both feel sometimes and today was one of “those” days…and then I heard this song- and as silly as it may sound, it made me feel better.
Because it really is all better when I see him happy, when he kisses me and smiles at me- all the frustration is gone. He’s got the best smile – melts his momma’s heart every time and this song reminded me to look for that smile and that it’s all going to be alright.
…Sometimes I wanna give up, wanna give in
I wanna quit the fight
And then I see you baby
And everything’s alright, everything’s alright
When I see you smile, I can face the world
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile, I see a ray of light
I see it shining right through the rain
When I see you smile
Baby when I see you smile at me
Baby there’s nothing in this world that could ever do
What a touch of your hand can do
It’s like nothing that I ever knew
And when the rain is falling, I don’t feel it
‘Cause you’re here with me now
And one look at you baby
Is all I’ll ever need, all I’ll ever need
Sometimes I wanna give up, I wanna give in
I wanna quit the fight
Then one look at you baby
And everything’s alright
Hay, everything’s alright
