When I first heard this song, I was 16 years old and my period was late for the first time ever. A friend played the song for me as we rushed to the local drug store to grab a few pregnancy tests. 16 year old me was thankful when the pregnancy tests were negative (I believe this is actually when my PCOS symptoms arrived because my period didn’t show for a whole year). For years, this song always took me back to that moment. That moment when 16 year old me thought my life might be over. That moment when I prayed and prayed for a negative pregnancy test.
This song came on the radio yesterday and I couldn’t help but think of how it relates to my life now. Who knew 28 year old me and 16 year old me would have so much in common?! I am still “sitting around waiting on two pink lines” and I am still “praying that faith is on my side” just in a completely different way. 28 year old me is praying for the opposite of what 16 year old me prayed for. 💔
