Its not shaping up to be the best one I've ever had ... long day ahead with a sick kid ... and need to do miles of running around and errands ... no birthday dinner, just a late afternoon Dr Appt. But my 16 year old did share a new country song with me the other night that I am playing over and over today ... it lends great perspective:
My favorite lyrics are:
We all got real still and quiet, And daddy asked "Honey, you alright?"
She said, "Dear, ain't nothing wrong, Noisy kids are happy kids,
And slamming doors just means we live, In a warm and loving home,
Your long hours and those dishes in the sink, Means a job and enough to eat.
So I'm gonna thank You Lord, For noisy children and slamming doors,
And clothes scattered all over the floor, My husband workin' all the time,
Draggin' in dead tired at night, My never ending messy kitchen
And if you read this today and feel like doing me a "birthday favor" I'm asking please, Please, PLEASE go read THIS blog entry by Families Need To Know. The author is a RN, her husband an ER doctor and their grandbaby was born still two years ago. I met her at the Still Birth Summit two weeks ago. We need more people to spread the message of the work these doctors are doing. Another site I encourage you to visit in Oct is HERE Or even better yet please read THIS BLOG POST and then share it with friends and family. Thank you!
