My kid was singing "You Are My Sunshine', and he changed the words to
"Mom makes it happy when skies are grey.'
It was in that moment I realized that no matter how defeating and challenging parenting can be, in our children's eyes, we bring sunshine to every day.
In their eyes, we make things look bright, even when they're scary or grim, and that makes all the hard days completely worth it.
