Wings

While we were getting ready for the day, the radio was playing in the background. This is the song that was playing... have you heard it?
----------------------------------------------------------------
Find Your Wings
By Mark Harris

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you

Will all too soon unfold

So many different prayers I'll pray

For all that you might do

But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth

And If I never told you

I want you to know
As I watch you grow

Chorus:

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams

And that faith gives you the courage

To dare to do great things

I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots

And help you find your wings


May passion be the wind

That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong

Guide you on your way
May there be many moments

That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories

Chorus:

It's not living if you don't reach for the sky

I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly

-----------------------------------------------------------------
As the song was finishing my daughter came to me. The following is our conversation. Brief but profound...

DD: Mom, I need you to help me.
Me: Okay, what do you need help with? (I'm thinking socks, buttons, hair...)
DD: I need you to help me find my wings. (Big grin crosses her face).

If she only knew, truly, what she had just asked for... and what that does to a mother's heart. *GULP*
