One of my favourite songs from a musical is For Good from Wicked. When I first listened to it after discovering the musical online shortly after it’s debut, I knew it was a song that would always mean a lot to me. The first musical Clara and I ever went to together was Wicked and I listened to the soundtrack throughout her pregnancy. I often find myself searching out the soundtrack during a bad day or popping it on when I want to have a little sing (usually when no one is around, as I can’t really hold a tune).
I feel the lyrics of For Good can be applied to my relationship with M.
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most, to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you
Since M’s birth three amazing years ago, I have changed beyond measure. He has certainly changed me for good and I am truly thankful. I had no idea a tiny human could have such an impact on me as a person, but I’ve embraced change and accepted the difference he’s made in my life.
Each day I wake up with a desire to be the best person I can be, to set myself goals to achieve all I can (even if sometimes I juggle too many balls) and aim to be the role model he deserves. I owe my passion for life to him and know that we’ve a whole load of adventures ahead of us.
I certainly know I am who I am today, because of M.
