Wild Child

Enya’s song, “Wild Child,” inexpressibly reminds me of my daughters.  Both so playful, full of joy and laughter, but also mischief and trouble, they are so adorable and I love them for who they are.  I was listening to this song and it just made it all the more clear how happy I am to have them and how much I enjoy and support their playfulness.  I don’t want them to grow up being door mats.  I want them to be strong, adventurous, and energetic women who will stand up against what is wrong, but also be able to go with the flow for whatever trials life throws at them.  I hope they are wild all their days!  Not in a rebellious way but in a lively and energetic way…God gave us this beautiful world and I will always look forward to walking with them in this wild adventure called life.

Enya’s Wild Child

Ever close your eyes
Ever stop and listen
Ever feel alive
And you’ve nothing missing
You don’t need a reason
Let the day go on and on

Let the rain fall down
Everywhere around you
Give into it now
Let the day surround you
You don’t need a reason
Let the rain go on and on

What a day, what a day to take to
What a way, what a way to make it through
What a day, what a day to take to a wild child

Only take the time
From the helter skelter
Every day you find
Everything’s in kilter
You don’t need a reason
Let the day go on and on

Every summer sun
Every winter evening
Every spring to come
Every autumn leaving
You don’t need a reason
Let it all go on and on

What a day, what a day to take to
What a way, what a way to make it through
What a day, what a day to take to a wild child
