When your world is calm and peaceful, I’ll be there.

When your world is chaotic like an ice cream shop on the hottest day of summer, I’ll be there.

When you need a Band-Aid applied and a boo-boo kissed, I’ll be there.

When you want to perform in your Frozen microphone like you’re performing for a crowd of 20,000 people, I’ll be there.

When you feel lost and alone, I’ll be there.

When you feel you have nowhere to go, I’ll be there.

RELATED: I Will Always Be There When You Need Me, My Son

When you need a pep talk before an interview or audition, I’ll be there.

When someone breaks your heart, I’ll be there.

When you need soup and tissues when a virus takes over, I’ll be there.

I’ll be there . . . 

As your hype man,

Your biggest fan,

The person who will never stop showing up.

I’ll be there . . . 

Through thick and thin,

With prayers sent,

And a hug as comforting as a blanket on a frigid winter’s night.

RELATED: You Won’t Always Need Me, But I’ll Always Be There

You are my biggest blessing.

My greatest gift.

Heaven sent.

Something only God could do.

I hope you always know how much you are treasured. And I hope I’m reminded each and every day, to show up in whatever way I can.

I Hope I Loved You Enough Today

In: Kids, Motherhood

As you lie sleeping in your bed, the weight of today lifts from my shoulders. The struggles of the day are quickly forgotten and I find myself looking at you in wonder. Memorizing your face and the dimples in your fingers. I want to rewind the day and tell you how good you did. How proud I am of you. I hope that I loved you enough today. As I drive you to school, I catch a glimpse of your sweet face staring back at me in the rear view. I replay the morning and find myself wondering. Did I...

I Will Always Comfort You, No Matter How Tired I Am

In: Baby, Motherhood

I rocked our babies to sleep till my arms felt like they were ready to fall off. I danced and swayed our babies to sleep until my legs felt like jello. I sang our babies to sleep until I felt like I was losing my voice. I walked around with a baby carrier strapped to my chest until I could walk no more and because people kept suggesting I try the “cry it out method,” I did.

In: Motherhood, Teen

They used to line up to watch me leave. Even if I was just running to the store for 10 minutes . . . five little faces would be pressed up against the glass. “Don’t forget to beep and wave!” they’d yell, knocking each other over trying to claim their spots by the window. We eventually even had to put little pieces of tape with their names on them right on the floor in front of the door so they would get into position with less arguing. It made for a long goodbye to line up littles fairly each time...
