ample opportunity on family road trips to love you anyway
Love You Anyway
by Jason Tomlinson

Everybody needs “I love you anyway”
with unkind moments and all the wrong things to say
we need that commitment from our friends and family
for who among us is always what they’re supposed to be
try as I might I gotta confess
that I’m not fun to be around when I’m a mess
as a husband and certainly as a dad
there are hours and even days when I am just bad
so I need that “love you anyway” love as much as any
as my character flaws add up to be many
never earned only given as it is completely free
I have this love for my family so glad they have it for me
