Being Brave!


Wow, it has been a busy few weeks! I can't believe how long I have been gone for! With Christmas coming, if I am not shopping or baking, it is running around for the kids school things. Not that I mind, but, damn, it has been busy....

I bring to you today a song that brought a tear to my eye and hope to my heart. As some of you know, my husband and I had a rough patch earlier this year. I am doing my best to swallow my fear and not beg him to stay, to give him back some of the trust that was robbed away. He is traveling to Buffalo to see a hockey game this Saturday afternoon with a friend and my mind has been putting me through the toils! I was doing laundry earlier and had the media player going. This song came on and it gave me hope....

It is Kenny Chesney's "Some People Change"....

His old man was a rebel yeller
Bad boy to the bone
He'd say "can't trust a colored feller"
He'd judge them by the tone of their skin
He was raised to think like his dad
Narrowminded, full of hate
On the road to nowhere fast
Til the grace of God got in the way
Then he saw the light and hit his knees and cried and said a prayer
Rose up a brand new man
Left the old one right there

Here's to the strong
Thanks to the brave
Don't give up hope
Some people change
Against all odds
Against the grain
Love finds a way
Some people change

She was born with her mothers habit
Guess you could say it's in her blood
She hates it that she's gotta have it
She fills her glass up
She'd love to kill that bottle
But all she could think about is
A better life, a second chance
And everyone she's lettin down
She throws that bottle down

Here's to the strong
Thanks to the brave
Don't give up hope
Some people change
Against all odds
Against the grain
Love finds a way
Some people change

Thank God for those who make it
Let them be alive

Here's to the strong
Thanks to the brave
Don't give up hope
Some people change
Against all odds
Against the grain
Love finds a way
Some people change

So even though I won't be able to sleep until he gets home, and that my mind will be buzzing with wonder, in my heart I know, he has changed.....I know you will read this, baby, I love you with all my heart and I know you will come home to me!
