What will this day be like? I wonder
What will my future be? I wonder
It could be so exciting To be out in the world To be free
My heart should be wildly rejoicing
Oh whats the matter with me?
I`ve always longed for adventure
To do the things I`ve never dared
Now here i`m facing adventure Then why am I so scared?
Captain with seven children Whats so fearsome about that?
Oh I must stop all these doubts All these worries If I don`t i just know i`ll turn back
I must dream of the things I am seeking I am seeking the courage I lack
The courage to serve them with reliance
Face my mistakes without defiance
Show them I`m worthy
And while I show them I`ll show me!
So! Let them bring me all their problems
I`ll do better than my best
I have confidence They`ll put me to the test
But I`ll make them see I have confidence in me
Somehow I will impress them
I will be firm but kind
And all those children Heaven bless them They will look up to me And mind me
With each step I am more certain
Everything will turn out fine
I have confidence the world can all be mine
They`ll have to agree I have confidence in me
I have confidence in sunshine
I have confidence in rain
I have confidence that spring will come again
Besides what you see I have confidence in me!
Strength doesn`t lie in numbers
Strength doesn`t lie in wealth
Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumber
When you wake up Wake up!
All I trust I give my heart to
All I trust becomes my own
I have confidence In confidence alone
O help…Besides what you see, I have confidence in me…..
As my son asked me to go to the playground tonight, after a long day with my sweet hubby away in a tough 2 week rotation to the field right now, I started to sing this song on our way…and envisioned our home with as many children as God may bless us with…and everything went really well until Hannah picked up dog poopie all the way to the playground…refused to hold my hand, walk, be held, and refused to cooperate in any reasonable way…we did make it to the playground though…and there she found more poopie to play with, ran towards the road away from the playground multiple times, and then my son looked at me and said “Mommy, it’s hot, can we go home now?” I don’t think we were even there for 5 minutes….but as I go to bed tonight, regardless of the miniscule frustrations my sweet little ones give me every now and then…I simply cannot imagine our home with anything but a houseful of children 🙂 The Sound of Music, Little House on the Prairie, Little Women, Little Orphan Annie, Sherley Temple, Anne of Green Gables, the Waltons, and I Love Lucy were some of my favorite movies/shows/books to watch/read growing up….I’ll never outgrow them.
