This "Thank You" goes out to someone who will never see this post. But I am writing it anyway. :)
If you want to know what it feels like to have your heart walk around outside of your body--have children! You feel their joy tenfold--you feel their pain tenfold! There are times a parent can do all things for their child and there are times a parent can do nothing but be there.
That being said, I have always felt that music provides a certain type of therapy. It can soothe the soul when nothing else seems to be good enough. Country music has always told stories. It is great for that "Somebody done somebody wrong song." More recently however, a new young lady has come on the scene of music. She writes about her life. She writes and sings about things that are happening to every young lady on the planet--from mean friends to bad break-ups. Whatever you are going through as a teenage girl--there is a "Taylor" song for that! Listen to her words--over and over--if you have to. It is so important for young ladies to remember they are not alone. It happens and it happens to everyone. You may not be AOK today but you will be AOK soon.
So, Thanks Taylor! Thanks for writing your songs. Thanks for telling your story. Thanks for helping my girls through the rough times. There may not be smiles today but there will be smiles sooner because someone besides me said things will get better. There are brighter days ahead. You truly are Fearless! And you empower every young lady to be Fearless too! :)
