Tonight we went to dinner with some friends and their babies. When we got back to our house my girlfriend was telling me what a great help Wyatt was and of course my pride was flowing over. He is 14 years old and at this point in his life he should have learned how to behave and the difference from right and wrong. It is such a nice thing to hear. As a parent we always worry did I do a good job raising my child? Am I a good parent? As I have always said to myself "I do the best job I can do at this time with what I know." No, I am not perfect as a human or a parent, I just do the best I can and hope and with a lot of prayer that what I have done was right.
The following song by Ryan Shupe has always been a song that I would play for Wyatt when it first came out, It is a wish for him as he grows and becomes an adult.
When you cry, be sure to dry your eyes,
'Cause better days are sure to come.
And when you smile, be sure to smile wide,
And don't let them know that they have won.
And when you walk, walk with pride,
And don't show the hurt inside,
Because the pain will soon be gone.
And when you dream, dream big,
As big as the ocean, blue.'
Cause when you dream it might come true.
But when you dream, dream big.
And when you laugh, be sure to laugh out loud,
'Cause it will carry all your cares away.
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself,
And it will help you feel okay.
And when you pray, pray for strength to help to carry on,
But when the troubles come your way.
And when you dream, dream big,
As big as the ocean, blue.
'Cause when you dream it might come true.
But when you dream, dream big.
When you cry be sure to dry your eyes, cause better days are sure to come.
And when you smile be sure to smile wide, and don't let them know that they have one.
And when you laugh be sure to laugh out loud,
'Cause it will carry all your cares away.
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself, and it will help you feel okay.
And when you pray, pray for strength to help to carry on when the troubles come your way.
