Music Monday | Darlin, Do Not Fear ~ Brett Dennen

June 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Early pregnancy is always a rough time for me. I fear being overconfident and then broken-hearted. I can’t seem to find that joy without a small piece of pain to weight it down.

This pregnancy in particular gave me a number of worries near the beginning. I struggled to hold my faith while at the same time Googling every symptom, every word that came out of doctors’ mouths. But where there was no definitive negative news, I had to have faith that whatever happened, I’d survive, I’d grow, I’d adapt.

I took so many of these words to heart, in particular:

Sometimes your path is marked in the sky
Sometimes it falls to fit in between the lines
Sometimes all you can do is say no
But darlin, do not fear what you don’t really know

Music Monday ~ Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sure, this song has been shuffled into play on more than one occasion in the last 12 or so years.  However, yesterday it came on as I was driving down 152nd, windows down, summer breeze coming through the window.

It definitely paralleled my route oh so many summer days and nights in 1999… except that every single other thing was different.  A minivan instead of a two-seater.  Bag packed with snacks and water bottles instead of … er, snacks and water bottles.  Two kids singing along in the back instead of random passenger.

Still one of my favourite driving songs from the first notes to the end.
