Want to hear something interesting?  I am sitting at my desk listening to Pandora Internet Radio playing LDS church Hymns and similar songs.  As I was sitting here, a song called “Who You Are” by Hilary Weeks came on.  As I listened, it was like Ms. Weeks was singing directly to me.  I have been having one of those kind of weeks and I confess I have wondered if I was doing it right or if I was ever going to have a peaceful home.  I mentioned earlier in this blog that I have difficulties with the concept of deserving to be tired.  This song spoke to that feeling like a beacon of light in the middle of a stormy sea and I found myself clinging to each word.  I’d like to share this song with you all, in case you’re feeling the same way and thank you, Hilary, if you’re reading this, for this song.  It was exactly what I needed today.

Lyrics below:

I know you wonder if you’ll ever have a day when the kids stay calm, the laundry’s done, and the dishes are put away. And sometimes you feel like your days are spent and gone and the question running through your mind is what have I gotten done? and when you finally have a moment to slow down at the end of you day I know Father would say
Believe in what you’re doing
Believe in who you are
Hold tight to the truth that you’re a daughter of God
Believe in who you’re becoming
Believe in who you are
It may seem simple – all the little things you do But the lives you touch matter so much. And there’s no one else like you. And Father needs you to stand tall and faithful to be all you can be.Oh, if you could see what he sees. When it’s hard to believe in yourself and you feel like you’re beginning to doubt, Remember
He believes in what you’re doing
He believes in who you are
Don’t lose sight of the truth that you’re a daughter of God
That he believes in who you’re becoming
He believes in who you are.
