Over the past couple of years I have received some difficult news from my doctor. Recently I got hit with another wave of difficult news from the doc. There have been moments in the past couple of years when we have grieved and been worried and we have definitely experienced those feelings in the past month, but like every time we hear hard news – we don’t stay there. Looking back, it’s amazing to me how much we have grown over this time. Each trial that comes our way, just draws us closer together. We are fighting this. Side by side. Hand in hand.
Lately I’ve had the chorus to Fight Song by Rachel Platten stuck in my head. Do you guys know this song? The whole song doesn’t really fit my situation, but the chorus is spot on. Check it out here:
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me!
Awesome, right? If you want to cry, watch this version where Rachel Platten sings it with a kid who is fighting cancer.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to deal with grief. I wrote about that a little bit here. We are definitely working through the difficult feelings and moments. But that’s not the end of it. We are looking forward. We literally name our blessings every day. Because we are grateful, but also to remind us of all the good in our lives. We are full of hope. And we are fighting this together.
Thanks friends for sticking with me through some of the more emotion filled posts. You guys are awesome. 🙂
Do you have a “Fight Song” that you play on repeat when you are dealing with something difficult?
