Today’s song post comes to you sans any music tracks. I thought it was best to do this one a cappella because it is such an emotional song already…..a very raw emotion that, I think, requires a raw presentation. It highlights the complexities involved in the relationship between parent and child.
We expect the ones who raise us to be superman, to be our heroes, to be perfect. When we find out that they are only human, it is disappointing. We blame them for their faults as well as ours and wonder how our perspectives on life came to be so incredibly different. But…someone very close to me once said, “One day that person is no longer going to be here and none of that will matter.” That was a huge moment for me. No matter what, I would miss both my parents so much if they weren’t here and I wouldn’t remember all the arguments. Instead, I would remember all the nuances — those special moments when they were “Mommy” and “Daddy”. In the end, they do what they can and same goes for all of us. We do what we can, the best we know how. We are not perfect, we are people and if you love someone, you love them for all of who they are — the good, the bad, the everything.
The song is Up to You
