To My Little Wonder…

To my precious Cal:

When you're a bit older like Daddy, I thought you might enjoy this song by Rob Thomas. I love listening to this song when I feel sluggish or unmotivated. The lyrics serve as a reminder that when life feels overwhelming, eventually, there will be calm. But the most important thing to remember is that when you are also feeling weary — that’s precisely the moment when life gives you a golden opportunity to stop peering so intensely at our own problems. Instead, we can start looking at ways we can help the world around us.

And maybe — just maybe — when we do this — we may start feeling a little bit better ourselves.

I love you forever and always.

Little Wonders by Rob Thomas

Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don’t you know
The hardest part is over?
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours still remain

Let it slide
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine
Until you feel it all around you
And I don’t mind
If it’s me you need to turn to
We’ll get by
It’s the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away somehow
But I can not forget
The way I feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away, but these small hours
These small hours, still remain
They still remain
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders still remain
