songs that inspire or encourage you?

Hi all,
Mother’s Day is almost here…and then it will be gone again for another year. WHEW!

Last year on Mother’s Day weekend, a woman from my local infertility support group sent an email with a link to a song that was keeping her going during the hard times. Later in the year another friend sent out a song that was helping her. Those two songs have been on repeat over the last year.

In the spirit of collective support, I thought I’d share those songs and see if anyone else has a song (or poem or anything else) that they turn to when they are feeling discouraged or hopeless. If so, please share! I imagine that we could all use a little encouragement this weekend and beyond!

*Andra Day - Rise Up

*Coldplay - Up & Up

*Michael Franti - Hey Hey Hey (not perfectly aligned to this struggle…but encourages me all the same)

I’m thinking of all of you as we move through this weekend.



I found the song Somewhere Out There to be meaningful and after we adopted our daughter I started to sing it to her. She’s only 1 1/2 now and has started singing along.

Thinking of you and all my HAP’s during this tough time of year. I was there and I remember how hard it was. Stay strong. You’re not alone.

Thank you! What a lovely song and how sweet that you can share this song with your daughter. Thank you for your encouragement.
