Breathe In, Breathe Out

Ah, tonight. It was a rough one- the kind of night where you're grateful for a father who makes goofy jokes and a mother who will listen to you from across the country on a phone line.

Outside forces rained in on this family with a vengeance. Sky had to raise his voice, which is very rare. I was so mad, I felt myself shaking. It was something that was meant to harm our family, so I am proud that we are still standing tonight. I am proud that my husband defended us- defended me. And held me to calm me down.

I'm sure most of you have heard this song. (And hopefully, you're all aware of the genius of Ingrid Michaelson.) But it plays in my head quite often, and it definitely was hummed this evening.

Linking up with Goodnight Moon...

Keep Breathing by Ingrid Michaelson

The storm is coming but I don't mind
People are dying, I close my blinds

All that I know is I'm breathing
now

I want to change the world
Instead I sleep
I want to believe in more than you and me

But all that I know is I'm breathing
All I can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing now

All that I know is I'm breathing
All I can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing

All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing now
