The Climb (A Letter to Amy)

Dear Amy,

Last week Juli and I took the girls to see Miley Cyrus's  Hannah Montana movie.  I heard her sing the song The Climb ... but really didn't listen to it.  Today I heard it again ... and I really listened to it and felt like it should be posted here on your blog.  I thought about this after we talked last night and the words to this song are what I think you need to hear right now.

It's about life.  To me, it's about doing the right thing, climbing up and overcoming past hurts and climbing up and moving forward.  Living every single day that you have, and knowing that you did it the best that you could do.  Always give more than you take.  It's the right thing to do.

All of us have numbered days .... some more than others, but we should all live our life like it's the last day we have.  Learn to live again Amy ... and that means forgivness.  Forgive not only your mistakes in life, but those that have let you down.  Learn to take one day at a time, no matter what curves you're thrown.  Don't let anger and heartache stand in your way.  It's so easy to wallow and so hard to rise up ... but when you do, you've won your battle, and you will no longer be broken.  Always do the right thing, even when it hurts, and you will never have regrets.  Be strong.  Be brave and have faith! 

Have faith Amy .... faith that can move a mountain, and when it's your time to go, ... go knowing that YOU ARE the best and only Mom your kids will ever have.  Leave a big mark, ... and when you get to the other side, what's left will be nothing but good, and the mark that you leave will always be here. 

I love you.


Mark 11:22-23 "Have faith in God. For whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."


  1. That song has so much meaning and so much truth to it. I have always felt chills everytime I hear the song "If tomorrow never comes" by Garth Brooks and it is a constant reminder to me to do everything in my power to make everyone close to me know just how much I love them and that when my time on earth is through, the love I gave each of them in the past, will be enough to last, until they meet me on the other side. Amy, I pray for you each day and pray for peace in your heart and for Gods healing hand to be on you. MOna

  2. I bеliеve everything ωrotе made a lot οf sense.
    Howeѵer, cοnsidеr thіѕ,
    what іf you wеге to write a аwеsome ρoѕt title?

    І ain't suggesting your content is not good., but what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean "The Climb (A Letter to Amy)" is a little plain. You could look at Yahoo's front pаge and wаtch hοw theу
    сrеate poѕt headlinеs tο gеt νiеwеrs tο click.

    You might aԁԁ a related video or a picture οr twο to get rеadeгs inteгestеԁ about ωhat you've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
