One Call Away

The emotional roller coaster that is life continues to just chug along at an incredibly fast pace these days, with the holiday season in full swing and lot’s of last minute preparations to finish up, to the family get together, to wrapping presents and getting ready for the magic that is Christmas morning… well it’s a lot.  Add on a touch of seasonal mood disorder with the lack of sunlight this time of year has always been a struggle for me.

I should say that it used to be.  Working a Keg Christmas schedule made it impossible to ever properly rest, let alone keep the thoughts and feelings in your head straight, organized and clear.

08387f6a628ddb7b24908c1831078918This year I have found an incredible clarity and sense of peace.  This inner peace has allowed me to handle the emotional roller coaster in a way I never have been able to before.  There are several other factors involved as well, but for the first time in over 20 years I am thoroughly enjoying this holiday season and the craziness that comes along with it.

Busy… no problem.  I got this.

Today I will be making three different pies, five dozen sugar cookies (thanks for the icing tips last night!! much needed) and perhaps even a Chocolate Raspberry cheesecake for dessert at my sisters family gathering.  Also need to wrap up the stocking stuffers tonight and finalize any other details I may have overlooked.

The flip side to my ying, is always someone else’s yang.  I am watching close friends, and family members struggle with this season.  It’s been incredibly hard to watch my daughter struggle with the simple fact of being happy.  I’ve seen this in other’s close to me as well, struggle with the non stop curve balls that life is throwing there way.  At the same time I have found an inner strength that has allowed me to be a rock for others that need that love and support.

I talked with my daughter for two hours last night about how she was feeling, and while she couldn’t quite summon the words needed to express herself just by being there and sharing stories from my childhood helped her back from the ledge and into a better place.  That is the message of today’s song that I would like to share…

One Call Away ~ Charlie Puth

I’m only one call away
I’ll be there to save the day
Superman got nothing on me
I’m only one call away
Call me, baby, if you need a friend
I just wanna give you love
Come on, come on, come on
Reaching out to you, so take a chance
No matter where you go
You know you’re not alone
I’m only one call away
I’ll be there to save the day
Superman got nothing on me
I’m only one call away
Come along with me and don’t be scared
I just wanna set you free
Come on, come on, come on
You and me can make it anywhere
For now, we can stay here for a while, ay
‘Cause you know, I just wanna see you smile
No matter where you go
You know you’re not alone
I’m only one call away
I’ll be there to save the day
Superman got nothing on me
I’m only one call away
And when you’re weak I’ll be strong
I’m gonna keep holding on
Now don’t you worry, it won’t be long, Darling
And when you feel like hope is gone
Just run into my arms
I’m only one call away
I’ll be there to save the day
Superman got nothing on me
I’m only one, I’m only one call away
I’ll be there to save the day
Superman got nothing on me
I’m only one call away
I’m only one call away
