My Wish

Before Hannah was born, I loved the song 'My Wish' by Rascal Flatts.

Now it takes on a whole new meaning and I usually burst into tears while listening to it.

This song puts into words what I wish for my children, better than I ever could!

So to my loves, this is My Wish for you:

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you're faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you

And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin' til you find the window
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
But more than anything, more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back but you never forget
All the ones who love you and the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get

Oh, you'd find God's grace in every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything, yeah more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish, yeah yeah

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish
(My wish for you)

This is my wish
(My wish for you)
I hope you know somebody loves you
(My wish for you)
May all your dreams stay big
(My wish for you)

  1. I've always loved that song. It definitely becomes even more poignant once you have kiddos of your own.

  2. It's funny that you picked this song! I have vivid memories of hearing this song on the radio right after I had Peytonn. I remember driving my sister's car on my way to the NICU for yet another day filled with feedings and emotions of my baby being in the hospital. I remember crying through the entire song. I sat in the parking lot of the hospital and just bawled my eyes out. Then put on my big girl panties and walked in to spend another glorious day with my miracle baby.

    I cry everytime I hear that song now. We can't pick and choose what our children will endure during their lifetime, but we can do everything in our power to prepare them to handle those joys and trials! Excellent choice in songs! :)
