In each tear

You’re much more than a struggle that you go through
You’re not defined by your pain, so let it go…
You’re not a victim, you’re more like a winner
And you’re not in defeat, you’re more like a queen – Mary J. Blige

If you are on my Facebook friends list you likely saw this there, apologies but I must post here as well. The lyrics, sentiment, touched me in relation to adoption reunion as well as life in general, at least in my current life it holds true.

I also posted to my tumblr (my personal non adoption related blog of things I like). But yeah, here you go.


“In each tear, there’s a lesson…


3 Thoughts.

  2. Suz, thank you SO much for sharing that song! It gave me goosebumps. What a powerful song, great words to live by.

    I’m going to have to put this on my iPod ~ my son’s birthday & Mother’s Day make this week pretty hard…

    .. my son’s birthday & Mother’s Day make this week pretty hard…

    Susie – I am hearing you on this one. Mothers day is followed by my daughters birthday on the 16th. Always difficult. Made more challenging this year due to her no contact order. Feels wierd/wrong/saddening to not be allowed to wish my own child a happy birthday and let her know I am thinking about her.
