Taken from Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
I learned that you need not be born into a family to be loved by one.
Life is not unlike cinema. Each scene has its own music, and the music is created for the scene, woven to it in ways we do not understand.
No matter how much we love the melody of a bygone day or imagine the song of a future one, we must dance within the music of today, or we will always be out of step, stumbling around in something that doesn’t suit the moment.
