For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

In keeping with my theme and quote of the week, I bet I could find a song, poem, quote, BIble verse, mediation, and joke to go with each thought of the week. Hum . . .


Artist: Sugarland
Song: Everyday America
Album: Enjoy The Ride

Grew up on a tight rope
Learned to smile even when I was fallin down
Daddy had a hard hand and and mama always had hope
And me and my sister couldnt wait to get out

Fell in love out of high school
Good man but a bad year
Visions of sugar plums and boxes of roses
All my girlfriends cried and I was out of here

[chorus:]
Oh, everybody's dreamin big
Oh, everybody's just gettin by
That's how it goes in everyday america
A little town with a great big life

Joey stares at a trophy
Took us all the way to state back in '85
Shining moment and a dusty reminder
He never felt so scared, he never felt so alive

But now there's toys in the backyard
Daddy's boys, you know how they like to fight
When they sleep, he swears they're angels
He wouldn't trade a day for all those friday nights

[chorus:]
Oh, everybody's dreamin big
Oh, everybody's just getting by
That's how it goes in everyday america
A little town with a great big life

We can laugh
We can cry
We're all just lookin for the reasons why
We face the dark 'till we see the light
Either way it'll be alright

[chorus 2x:]
oh, everybody's dreamin big
oh, everybody's just gettin by
That's how it goes in everyday america
A little town with a great big life

A little town with a great big life

A little town with a great big life
I don't need no other life.

Now does this fit or what!? Do you get this song like I do? The final accepatnce . . .

Love,
Chatty
