Friday Morning Toe Tapper

Hi! This is Meaghan standing in for Jake today. Isn’t he the best, taking some time to send out some encouragement every single workday? His daily attitude of gratitude continues to amaze me. He lives this out in our daily life. No matter what is going on around us, he looks on the bright side and helps me to do the same. I am definitely still learning, so I look forward to opening my email every morning to see what he has to say, and Fridays might be my favorite.

While today’s toe tapper is a little on the twangy side, I think the sweet message is worth the listen!

Try not to take the lyrics too literally, but they resonated with me because so many of us are encountering heartbreak and worries, being given our own extremely sour lemons, and feeling like "the house" just keeps on winning. When I heard the chorus, I loved the idea of keeping a light on in my soul (the Spirit is within us!) and a bluebird in my heart (reminds me of the Zip-a-Dee-Doo Dah song, often sung by my cheery and postive grandfather, my Boompa). Even when things are not going our way, when the whole wide world seems to have stopped singing, we can remind ourselves and encourage each other that there is still, always, that pretty little bluebird flutter of hope to be rekindled! Keep going, keep giving, and keep that light on in your beautiful soul.
