The first time I really listened to the lyrics of this song ("Little Wonders" by Rob Thomas), I was driving in the suburban looking in my rear view mirror at my four young children (all 5 years and younger). I had heard the song on the radio before but never really paid attention to the words. It had been a particularly difficult day with the kids and I was just trying to get through running some errands (many of you know how fun this can be when you have four little ones in tow) and I just wanted to get home. Feeling rather frazzled I tuned out the noise from the kids and listened to the calming music in the introduction of this song. As the lyrics started and I listened to the words I thought this song was being written for me. My heart began to soften and a lump formed in my throat. It didn't take long for the tears to well up in my eyes as I thought of my own little wonders and how much I love my children.
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Let it in,
