Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) is a global community celebrating live music on Hive. Each week is a new event, encouraging musicians to share songs with an international audience.
This week's Hive Open Mic theme is: "Amor de Familia" (Love of Family), and the song I'm sharing is a lullaby I sing to my kids at night. For me, it is a special time in my life to sing this song, because I'm in nearing the completion of a drawn-out marriage separation, with relationship changes... and I'm in the middle of a long stretch of parenting as a single dad to three kids, while their mom is out in a retreat, taking care of herself.
Being on dad duty comes with some complexities as it relates to my relationships with friends and work, which feels burdensome, sometimes. Really, though, I'm totally blessed by these kids, and their wonderful way of being in the world. I am inspired by them daily, and I am learning constantly to be more patient, respectful, and kind. I am also grateful for my entrepreneurial role as a videographer and video studio owner, which gives me a lot of flexibility in my schedule, and plus I love the work.
Happy to say that I'm starting to feel lighter after transitioning through some challenging times in my personal life. During times of sorrow, I often find myself struggling with ego trips, thinking I need to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. But really, I see the miracles happen when I let go of the worries and the hurry, connecting with the divine, who is infinitely giving.
As it relates to this song, I find comfort in connection with the divine family: Father, Mother, and Child, available to us all, always. In my way of understanding, we are all children of God. In another way of thinking, we are all spirits connected with the Great Spirit, also called Great Mystery by some and Holy Spirit by others. This connection is a pure source of peace for me, giving me sweetness in my waking life and in dreams.
You beautiful baby
Rest well with the stars
Little darling [child]
Hmm mmm mmm
Your Mother is here to hold you
Rest well knowing
Your Heavenly Father adores you [as you are]
Hmm mmm mmm
To guard you little lamb
The Lion of Judah loves you
Peace be with you [lion cub]
Hmm mmm mmm

Hola amigo que hermoso canta y toca 🤩lo abmiro muchas felicitaciones 😎🤗👍
Hola amigo cabelindsay, que bonita canción 😍 buena y hermosa voz también toca bellísimo 🤩Felicitaciones ❤️
Definitely this has been the best thing I have read in days, the theme of the week symbolizes the most beautiful love that has no expiration date, that pure love that is unconditional and that accompanies us whether we are good or not so good. We are happy that every day we see you shine more, your eyes reflect more light and we are pleased to know that between those days of tribulation you have overcome everything and will continue to flourish, it is known that any process of separation is slow and often painful but we think that the Creator gave you a warrior spirit. You know we particularly think that when something comes to an end, we feel that the love that was formed does not end but transforms and you have 3 beautiful children that make your life more sublime.
Thank you brother, your singing, the art you give, your example of life and pure heart makes us see that we can still believe in everything beautiful that this land has.
Once again, your words lift me up with the kind of kindred relating that can only come from a brother and sister. It is a total joy and pleasure knowing the two of you, and feeling our connection deepen. Thank you for relating with me, and growing alongside me, all the while growing closer as friends and family.

You're right man...... If we're all God's children then we're all family
That's the way I see it, brother. I'm glad you relate with that idea.
Cabe brother, although I am not yet a dad, I can understand what you mention about your role as a father, it is not easy, it brings stress, fatigue, pressure and a lot of it, plus you must focus more of your energies on them ... it is not an easy task and recognize those effects that has brought for you the separation of the mother of them, is human, thank you very much for the confidence, it's nice that you vent too, because not everything is as we wish, everything should be as we need it...
You are a being with a strong spiritual connection 🙏, you know how to deal with certain burdens, but when there are collapses, seek a refuge that allows you to breathe calmly, your process must have that balance you are looking for, meanwhile, you are meeting a better version of Cabe Lindsay that is being polished to shine... and yes you will my brother, you will shine much more than you already shine 💎🌟!!!!
Very beautiful your song, it has a tremendous sacred bond, your children will remember it as adults, I loved the notes you used on the guitar and your voice resonates always in that house and here it transcends 🙌😀💛!!!!
I send you a huge hug brother, I love you very much and thank you for guiding this great family that also loves you..... You Rockkk!!! 👊😎🔥🎙️🎸🎶❤️🌟🍻💥💫💯
Your advice is spot-on, yes, thank you! In fact, I reached a breakthrough just this week by practicing the rosary. Are you familiar with the rosary? I'm told it is an ancient ritual that pre-dates the religions, as a primitive yet powerful way of connecting with Source. It is really helping me to turn down the volume on those loud thoughts that keep me up at night, helping me to relax and sleep.
Yesssss, I know it my brother 🙌😀💛, in fact, it is my greatest spiritual refuge, I always wear one, it was given to me by a Christian father who helped me in a critical moment here in Colombia and in whom I placed a special trust for his great wisdom and his powerful connection with God 🙏💖!!!
The Rosary creates a very powerful energy and allows you to connect very well with the source, it will give you a lot of stability in moments when you need it and it will train your mind more!!!!
It's a beautiful song! 😍 Is really sweet that you sing it to your kids at night.
Amigo @cabelindsay la letra de esta canción es hermosa y como siempre tú transmite esa paz al cantarla, ser padre no es fácil igual que ser madre vamos construyendo nos e inventandonos día tras dia para darles a nuestros hijos lo mejor y los valores para que se defienda en su vida. Me encanto tu interpretación amigo🤗😃⭐🎶🎶♥️🎵🎵🙏☺️👫👪🔥🌻♥️💙💜🧡💞
Thank you for seeing and feeling the beauty in this lullaby. It feels good to connect with you, friend.
Gracias por ver y sentir la belleza de esta canción de cuna. Se siente bien conectar contigo, amiga.
Igual contigo amigo🤗💙🧡❤️💞
Te felicito tocas bien la guitarra sigue así 👌 exelente trabajo
My dear friend @cabelindsay it was a very nice music sharing. I am sure it will be a pleasure for your children to listen to this lullaby from you. Throughout our lives, we are constantly faced with many difficulties that I can call a test for us. I hope you can overcome these difficulties as soon as possible. I hope you have a beautiful evening with your children and the people you love.😊🙏🙏😊
Aw, what a beautiful comment, thank you for sending your hopeful ray of light in my direction. It's a real pleasure being a dad. I'm lucky they still let me sing to them at bedtime. Such a treat.
