I posted these words on March 6, 2006....a Bluegrass/Southern Gospel group called "The Isaacs" wrote and sing this wonderful, powerful message in song:
Momma combs his hair
and Daddy helps him brush his teeth
Day after day for thirty years the same routine
The special needs he lives
with make life seem so unfair
But he thanks God every day
Because he knows Mom and Dad are there..
He's a hero and she's a hero
It doesn't matter that nobody knows their name
They keep on giving to make life worth living
Might go unnoticed but they're heroes just the same
They tried for many years to have a baby of their own
But God knew a little girl who didn't have a home
Someone else's burden was their blessing in disguise
And now she's got a Mom and Daddy
there to hold her when she cries
Every single parent who must carry twice the load
And those who sacrifice to raise a child that's not their own
They dedicate their time to make a difference in someone else's life
And in my eyes...
He's a hero, and she's a hero..
Does'nt matter if anyone knows their names....
They might go unnoticed but they're heroes just the same.
Our world and our culture is starving for "heroes." All of the ones that we thought we had have become anything BUT heroes. But, as the song says, "They keep on giving to make life worth living...might go unnoticed, but they're heroes just the same."
Who are the "heroes" in your life? Tell me about them. I really do want to know.
