This morning on my way to ride with my friends, “I Believe in Love” by Don Williams came on. I’m only 34 but I’m an old soul, and I love me some Don Williams.
As I listened to the words, I found there were many things he and I agree on. These are my favorite lyrics:
“I don’t believe in superstars […] that right is right and left is wrong, that North and South can’t get along, […] and bein’ first is always best / But I believe in love […] And I believe in you / I don’t believe that heaven waits for only those who congregate, I’d like to think of God as love […] / I believe in love, I believe in music, I believe in magic, and I believe in you”
This also helped me get back in the mood for the last few weeks of school. This time of year gets SO hard and sometimes I find it hard to continue being positive. My temper and patience both get short, my sympathy is nonexistent, and my tongue probably gets a little sharp.
So when I head back next week (I’m in no rush, mind you), I’m going to try to keep Don’s words in mind. I want to leave my kiddos knowing I believe in them, that I’m here for them even next year when they’re seniors.
I believe in you!
