there to cheer you on

All the things you treasure most will be the hardest won
I will watch you struggle long before the answers come
But I won’t make it harder, I’ll be there to cheer you on
I’ll shine the light that guides you down the road you’re walking on

  1. Extremely beautiful and worth! Barbara, I felt really good reading the quote, that despite the hard times, there is still someone to bring the cheer, despite all the struggle there is someone to shed the light on the path we choose. I’m feeling a lot better! thank you so much!!! 🙂

    1. You know, Rosie, whenever the song these lyrics are from comes around on my playlist, I stop what I’m doing and reflect a little on my mother and on my daughter – it’s very moving. The painting made me think of the song the moment I first saw it. I’m glad you loved it! (((hugs)))
