Somebody's Hero - Jamie O'Neal - LIVE LIFE LOVE LIFE

Somebody’s Hero – Jamie O’Neal

“She’s never pulled anyone from a burning building
She’s never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans, screaming out her name
She’s never hit a shot to win the game
She’s never left her footprints on the moon
She’s never made a solo hot air balloon ride, around the world,
No, she’s just your everyday average girl (but)”

A song filled with love for all the parents out there! You don’t have to do extraordinary things to be extraordinary to somebody. The love we give to our children fills an entire lifetime, and I don’t know about you, but that’s damn impressive. To give so selflessly of yourself to another is one of life’s greatest joys. Parenting is one of the most challenging things we will ever do, but it comes with the most reward. Life moves so fast and we must take a step back and realize those moments we spend cuddling on the couch or a meal shared around the table are the moments that will define your happiness.
 

 

“She’s somebody’s hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the cheerios
The voice that brings
Snow White to life
Bedtime stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She’s somebody’s hero”

You are a hero in their eyes simply because you love them so hard. You don’t have to be the perfect parent that has all the laundry done and packed away every night, or keep the house sparkling…be the parent that plays on the floor, goes out for ice cream or stays up a little later to watch a show together. Be the keeper of the cheerios and the voice of every animated character you can, for as long as you can. One day the roles will shift, but the smiles you get throughout your life will be the reminders that you did an amazing job!

  1. Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking a few minutes
    and actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I
    procrastinate a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
