As I lie on the canvas, bloodied and bruised from my opponent, my favorite childhood song, "Ask Me in December," beckons to me from the old victrola in the corner of my heart, telling me to get up and duel once more. It's lyrics immediately breathe renewed hope and life into my spirit while successfully ignoring my pleas to retreat into the corner so that I may tend to my broken heart and badly rug-burned praying-knees.

I hadn't thought of dad's song in nearly fifteen years, but remembering the powerful lyrics of the song instantly strengthened my resolve.

My Daddy wrote the song for me many moons ago when I was a preteen who was feeling blue. 

Today, my friend, let me share it with you. It empowered me when I remembered it. It just may make you feel better too!

🎶Ask Me In December🎶

Get up, Tiff. It's time to stir the pot!

Get up, Tiff, and fight for all who cannot!

Get up, Tiff. Give it all you've got!

Suit up in your warmest winter gear!

Suit up; your victory over life's wintertime blues is near!

Get up!

Get up!

Get up!

Life might feel ice cold right now, but remember, July is coming!

Ask me in December if I won the fight!

Yes! I sure did! By years end, God made things right!

    This seems so real, EVERYONE missed the huge fictional poetry bit. Now i am confused if daddy wrote some and fictional wrote some. Either way...the message is sorely needed. Thanks for that.

    And now Daddies song will live forever. Remembering times like the one you just shared is priceless. Not everyone can say that their father wrote them a song to help them feel better. Triple thanks for sharing. 💖
