“You Made Me Who I Am”

_You Made Me Who I Am_ CD Cover
What are you thankful for? As Thanksgiving approaches, thankfulness is on our minds, as we count our blessings and what we are grateful for.

Recently my Dad called to tell me that his wife Laura had a bad fall and thought she broke her hip. Luckily nothing is broken but she is seriously bruised and is in the hospital recovering. My Dad always keeps a cheerful front, but I could hear the worry in his voice. That made my heart tender, as I’m sure a similar call from family touches you. I want to pull my family closer and I’m reminded how amazingly blessed I have been in my life to have such loving parents.

I’m also blessed to have music in my life, brought to me by my sweet Momma. I know a lot of people never get to pursue their dreams the way I have. I’m blessed to be able to live it each and every day, making my living doing something I love so much. Sometimes it is a challenge, when the grass looks greener, when others have “real jobs”, seemingly with security and structure, but I keep at it anyway. I know it’s my life’s purpose, part of my soul, to make music. Most of all, I could never continue without all the love and support from you! You are the reason I do what I do; you lift me up, sustain me and keep me on my path.

You Made Me Who I Am

I am a child
I am a woman.
I wanna be your little girl forever.
Maybe I should grow up but I
Don’t wanna thing to change.

I made a lot of mistakes in my life and I
Called you up cryin’
Called you up and you were there for me.
I don’t know what I would do if I, I didn’t have you
To pick me up, pick me up, pick me up.

You made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
Made me, made me, you made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
You—made me who I am.

Sometimes I’m sad,
Sometimes I’m lonely,
But there’s something I always come back to.
Lifts me up and sustains me;
It’s everything I learn from you.

But you never preach to me you just live your life,
Live your life and you were there for me.
I don’t know what I would do if I, I didn’t have you
To pick me up, pick me up, pick me up.

You made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
Made me, made me, you made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
You—

And all that I am today, because you love me,
Love me that way, because you love me,
You made me who I am.

Made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
Made me, made me, you made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
Made me who I am.
You—you—made me who I am.
