Things I love

Keep You Safe by JJ Heller

February 26, 2015
designQuiet your heart
It’s just a dream
Go back to sleep
I’ll be right here
 
I’ll stay awake as long as you need me
To slay all the dragons
And keep out the monsters
I’m watching over you My love is a light 
Driving away all of your fear
So don’t be afraid
Remember I made a promise to keep you safe

You’ll have your own battles to fight
When you are older
You’ll find yourself frozen inside
But always remember

If you feel alone
Facing the giants 
And you don’t know 
What to do

My love is a light 
Driving away all of your fear
So don’t be afraid
Remember I made a promise to keep you safe 

This song. It’s kinda what I want to be for my kids. Just wrapping them up, protecting them from all the monsters and dragons. 

And like JJ Heller sings, it’s not possible to protect them from everything. There will be battles to fight and giants to face and that ol’ nemesis of mine called ‘letting go’.

It’s the letting go that makes them stronger and it’s the letting go that’s so hard to do! 

Have you had to let go? How did you do?

    yes, I am having a big lesson in letting go right now with my first-born heading off to school. No-one tells you how hard it can be! It turns out I am missing having him in my presence 24/7 ! And not having that control of what happens while he is at school! Slowly I am getting used to it.
