Becoming a mom turned me into a sap. A glass case of emotion, if you will (let’s be friends if you caught that movie reference). My little mama heart just can’t handle all the feels of certain movies, books, or even commercials. And music is a whole ‘nother beast, friends. I can barely make it through this latest song, Dear Daughter, by GRAMMY® Award-winning hard rock band Halestorm.
Dear Daughter, never lose yourself. Remember that you’re like nobody else.
Evelyn is a spunky little girl. At just four, she’s been a transforming force in our family. I’ve always called her our rainbow connection since she’s a little piece of everyone in our blended family and connects us all to one another. She knows what she wants in life and isn’t afraid to demand it, ha! Parenting a spirited child with her personality is challenging, but I know it will serve her well later in life when things get difficult. She’s one of a kind and I’m proud to be her mother.
These are words that every girl should have a chance to hear: there will be love, there will be pain, there will be hope, there will be fear. And through it all year after year, stand or fall I will be right here for you.
As Evelyn’s mother, I’ve promised to be there through all the highs and lows of her life. I can’t promise her a pain free life, but I can let her know that no matter what happens, I’ll be right next to her to pick her back up.
For me, sometimes it takes a song to say all the things I’m thinking and feeling, but can’t translate into words myself. This Dear Daughter song by Halestorm does exactly that since Lizzy Hale was inspired by the support she received from her parents when she and younger brother Arejay decided to start a rock band as kids and their parents’ encouragement to pursue their dreams.
