As I struggle to be the person this world expects me to be, these words continue to come back to me - especially on days when being here without Tay doesn't make sense.
In a world where tomorrow is never guaranteed, where hope as a rationed commodity sometimes rests just out of reach of the hearts and hands in my life's path, where we treat love like a drive-thru order instead of a treasured family heirloom, I hope one day I can be more like my daughter -
living large enough to love others so big
living daring enough to go all in
living silly enough to laugh at myself
living rebellious enough to throw off the shackles of worry
living brave enough to tackle the next hard thing
living faithful enough to just believe
living enough to make the days I live count in the life of someone else....
