times with friends

The CMAs are tomorrow…so those of you that aren’t fans only have to endure my country music posts 2 more times. Along the same lines as yesterday I’m writing some lyrics to accompany a few shots from some times I’ve spent with my friends and their kiddos lately. A little LeAnn Womack wonderfulness with you…

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder


You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger1109friends-1

May you never take one single breath for granted

1109friends-5God forbid love ever leave you empty handed


I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean


Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens


Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance


And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance1109friends-7

I hope you dance (my boy…he usually prefers dancing with my friend Jenn’s strobe light)1109friends-11

So tomorrow’s post will be a country music lyric game…get ready. I don’t want Rachel and I to be the only ones playing!
