Music Monday

This song is one that my mom found and put into a slide show for me when I graduated high school back in 2011. This song made me cry so hard, not going lie. I think it describes the way parents see their kids in general. But especially those who have CHD and other chronic illnesses or disabilities. Our parents are able to see our hearts... and they know how amazingly wonder their children are - no matter what society might say about them. If you ever need a way to reassure your children that you love them, no matter how "different" they are, this song will surely touch their hearts and make them see just how much you love them. 

My favorite part is the part is the verse: 
"Believe me when I say
It's not about your scars
It's all about your heart " 


 As someone with many scars and who has struggled with accepting my body because of them - this verse was when my tears started. My mom reassured me with a song that my scars aren't important. My heart is. The way I treat people, the way I accept others and being kind - that is what makes someone beautiful; even with all my scars. And to those of you who have scars, just know that the same applies to you. To those who are considered "different" or "odd", I don't see you as that and I bet your parents don't either. We see your heart and how wonderful it is - because that is all that matters. 

"All About Your Heart" by Mindy Gledhill
I don't mind your odd behavior
It's the very thing I savor
If you were an ice cream flavor
You would be my favorite one

My imagination sees you

Like a painting by Van Gogh
Starry nights and bright sunflowers
Follow you where you may go

Oh, I´ve loved you from the start

In every single way
And more each passing day
You are brighter than the stars
Believe me when I say
It's not about your scars
It's all about your heart
You´re a butterfly held captive
Small and safe in your cocoon
Go on you can take your time
Time is said to heal all wounds

Oh, I´ve loved you from the start

In every single way
And more each passing day
You are brighter than the stars
Believe me when I say
It's not about your scars
It's all about your heart

Like a lock without a key

Like a mystery without a clue
There is no me if I cannot have you

Oh, I´ve loved you from the start

In every single way
And more each passing day
You are brighter than the stars
Believe me when I say
It's not about your scars
It's all about your heart

Hope and Love,
Becca
