This song has been stuck in my head for some time, and it’s so appropriate for the emotional, reflective time that back to school season brings.
My sister first introduced me to this song and this video, and it brought tears to my eyes when I watched it. Check it out below.
My favorite line is:
I owned every second that this world could give
Love it! Don’t we all want our kids and ourselves to live life this way?
While my kindergartener can’t really comprehend what this line means, it IS my wish for her to “own” and embrace this beautiful life and many opportunities that she has been given.
The marking of a new school year is always a celebration and time to reflect on how far your kids have come since last year. It’s a time to be proud and hope for the best experience possible, as kids spread their wings a bit more and broaden their world beyond the comfort zone of home. Enjoy, love much, and simply “live” in the moment!
Cheers to all parents & kids!
