Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

I’ll Be There

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

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

When you need a bandaid applied and 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.

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:

With prayers sent,

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

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.
