A while back, one of my two sisters shared the lyrics of the Rascal Flatts song I Won’t Let Go with both my other sister and I. We’d had a particularly difficult conversation just minutes ago, the song played on her way home, and she sent us a text to let us know that we should listen to the song, as it represented how she felt about us.
I’m having a particularly gloomy day today, and happened to hear the song blaring from a radio on the floor below mine at work (Yeah, it’s that loud.). Though I can’t say hearing it made me feel any better, it sure reminded me of just what’s important. My sister shared those lyrics with us, and it hit me so hard that night because I know it’s true. I know that either one of my sisters would do anything for me. They live those lyrics every day. They stand by me. They help me. And I can only hope they think the same of me. Let me tell you, those are two incredible people, both with their own beautiful strengths.
There’s a difference in talking the talk and walking the walk. It’s those who walk the walk that should matter the most, and I need to remember that. Those who just talk the talk don’t deserve the right to rain on my parade.
Now, if only living that were so easy.
