“Just hold your head high. Don’t ever let them defy the light in your eyes. Love yourself give ‘em hell. You can take on this world you just stand and be strong and then fight like a girl.”
-“Fight Like a Girl” by Bomshel
I never knew how many special songs could mean so much to me, how much they could give an explanation for every aspect of my existence.
“You can let go now, Daddy, you can let go. Your little girl is ready to do this on my own. It's gonna be a little bit scary but I want you to know I'll be okay now, Daddy. You can let go.”
-“You Can Let Go” by Crystal Shawanda

“I remember Daddy’s hands, folded silently in prayer. And reaching out to hold me, when I had a nightmare. You could read quite a story, in the calluses and lines. Years of work and worry had left their mark behind.”
-“Daddy’s Hands” by Holly Dunn
