May 20th

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free

Only remedy for big odds is a Big God
Ain't nobody gonna shake my faith
No I'm not afraid
Throw my hands up in praise
For the times that He pulled me through
I'm counting on Big God

First Tom Petty then Terrian pull things together with their lyrics better than I can muster words today. Sometimes songs just seem to come at the right time. When you turned 42, you had a 12 and 10 year old and were losing mobility.  Age 12 was the year I started doing the grocery shopping and making the family meals, growing up faster than anyone intended.  I'm now 42 with a 12, 10 and 6 year old, remembering, realizing and grieving in a new way as I get to the same ages you were. Sometimes when things just feel heavy, I'm reminded where to turn, where the yoke is easy and the burden is light.  And also, chocolate cake because that's what you'd always pick.
