Sing a New Song

Ever noticed how the radio can read your mind? It's like somehow those radio towers are channeling your innermost thoughts and will play the song that most fits with what you're feeling the exact moment you're feeling feeling it. (Don't worry: this is not going to turn out to be a blog about a government conspiracy.)

I have had the most stressful week since my husband has left for training. Nothing major or out of the ordinary has happened, but every little thing has just been driving me nuts. (i.e. The baby that won't stop crying...the kid that has accidents in the ballet classroom...the burnt supper...the never-ending shopping list...the "perfect" timing of mother nature...)

In steps my country music radio station, with just the right songs to turn my foul moods around. These are not my own words (not playing the poet today lol) but they were just what I needed to hear. And just in case you need to hear them too, here they are:

(Jack Ingram-Keep on Keepin' On)
Some things ain't meant to be
The best things in life are free
And tomorrow is another day
Funny how the truth sounds so cliche

Keep on, keep on keepin' on
Push it on down the road
Keep on, keep on keepin' on
Still got a ways to go

Keep on, keep on keepin' on
Push it on down the line
Keep on, keep on keepin' on
Keep from gettin' further behind
(Dierks Bentley-Free and Easy Down the Road I Go)
Ain't no tellin' where the wind might blow
Free and easy down the road I go
Livin' life like a Sunday stroll
Free and easy down the road I go
Free and easy down the road I go

If you only get to go around one time
I'm gonna sit back and try to enjoy the ride
(Lady Antebellum-American Honey)
Get caught in the race
Of this crazy life
Trying to be everything can make you lose your mind
I just wanna go back in time
To American honey
(Miranda Lambert-Heart like Mine)
‘Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
And I bet we’d get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet He’d understand a heart like mine

I’ll fly away
From it all one day
I’ll fly away
(Sugarland-It Happens)
But it's poor me, why me, oh me, boring
The same old worn out, blah, blah story
There's no good explanation for it at all

Ain't no rhyme or reason
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over-think it
Let go, laughing
Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
The irrefutable, indisputable fact is
It happens

And let's not forget Luke Bryan...
Aw, country girl, shake it for me
Girl, shake it for me
Girl, shake it for me
(Just because I really like that one right now!)
