I’ve started walking again. I want to start running. (I’ve never been a runner, but I figure if I don’t start now, I never will be.) I take my phone with me. (I love my smartphone and wonder how I ever lived without it!) Of course, Pandora is installed. That’s what I listen to while walking. And every day, this song plays. Today for some reason, I listened to the words. Yeah, I’ve heard them a million times before. But today I said, “Yes, this is me. And yes, I am my Father’s daughter.” And I was comforted by the thought.
Excerpt from the Lyrics of The Song:
She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows
Sign her letters with X’s and O’s
Got a picture of her mama in heels and pearls
She’s tryin to make it in her daddy’s world
An American girl
An American girl”
