I’ve saved the best for last. (Lucky number thirteen.) My “adopted” daughter Sarah is the one living female in my life whom I love the most.
Her approval means everything to me. It was only after she decided that my work for kids is “God’s work” that I felt it had been green-lighted and I could give it my all. So if you like what I’m doing, thank Sarah. (And if you don’t approve, just keep her out of it!)
“That certainly isn’t a very mooshy song, is it?” I challenged gently.
“Well, no… but I’ve liked it since I was young, because of the film and all that,” she explained.
“I guess it also has to do with the fact that you place such a high value on loyalty,” I ventured.
“Well, yeah,” she agreed.
We had talked about this before. Faithfulness is not so much a ball-and-chain obligation, but a decision to freely commit to someone or something, and to keep making that same free choice again and again, no matter what new circumstances or obstacles may stand in the way. It provides for permanence without staleness.
We are family. I’m grateful that, if everyone else in the world were to abandon me, Sarah would remain.
I love you, Sarah.

“Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable, than fidelity. Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind.”
