Beautiful Life

When people play music on their blogs, it usually annoys me. I have to mute it if I want to actually remember the details of what they write about. I vowed to NEVER play music on mine. Well, this song is up there temporarily so you can all hear it. I love it! I first heard it as a promo on TLC for their Monday night family shows. I YouTubed it and heard the whole thing.

It says so much of how I want my kids to feel and be raised. I want them to explore the world and not feel confined in one small city, state, or even country. I want them to know that there is more out there than I can possibly show them, and they should go see those things and chase their dreams, no matter how unrealistic they may seem.

I want them to know that some of the most wonderful things in life are right here if we just open our eyes and look around. I want to be right there with them as they search out anwsers to questions they may have. I want to walk the road of life right along side them, holding their hands when needed, and letting them run free if they are willing to try.

Its a beautiful life, a beautiful day, and a beautiful time to be here.

You are beautiful, Em. I can't help but look back at how far you've come, and how far you will go with your amazing outlook!

I'm excited for the things God has in store for you and your family. I look forward to celebrating the joys, and supporting you through the tests.

I like that song, too! Since I got pregnant I cry every time I see that promo.
