Inspiring?


Jay captured this rainbow last night after the boys were in bed. Isn't it beautiful?


I heard this on the radio yesterday,

"yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mystery,
today is a gift,
that's why it's called the present."

I found this really inspiring and guess what?

It's from a country song. We were talking about country music as Splurge this last week and some commented that they enjoyed the stories that most country songs tell. This one was about a mother finding out she had cancer and this is what the doctor told her.

I was almost crying - we got to Michaels' (more Pirate party supplies) half way through so I didn't hear the end.

You know, if you would have told me in Grade 12 that I would actually enjoy country music, I would have told you that you were wrong. I did go through a country stage about a year later - kinda coincided with meeting Jay but he had nothing to do with it. I was really into horses at that time so I justified it that way - had to otherwise my sheer distaste for all things country in high school would have been hypocritical. Okay, so it still was but what can I say, I am weird that way!

Anyway, wearing Wranglers to the bar probably isn't justified by my horseback riding - my horse was no where near the bar! Thankfully that stage didn't persist and I still own some but they are hanging in my closet at my parents house waiting for me to own a horse again - IF I can fit into them - ha ha. Two kids later, me thinks I should get rid of them! I know Mom would appreciate that :-)

I no longer have my horse :-( but I hope to ride again someday AND I still enjoy country music every now and then!

Maybe one of my boys will want to take up riding with me when they are a bit bigger. I miss flying around on the back of a horse - it's just too much fun.

Beautiful shot!

I also am very vocal against country (my mom & sister are fans)

But lately, I've been thinking I might like it. A little.

Might.

I saw that rainbow too. You could actually see both ends. I was tempted to run home and bring Hannah out with me to see it. Great Picture! I will get you to be a country fan one of these days maybe you and Jay should come with Devin and I to Craven ;-)
