I love listening to music. And I listen to all kinds. Everything. Although classic country's not really my thing. But Michael loves it, so sometimes it's on.
Most of the time, music means something to me that I can relate to. Life, love, kids. Good and bad times. Sometimes music is just something fun to listen to that puts me in a good mood. I mean, who doesn't need a little 'Moves Like Jagger' in their life to put a smile on their face?? Kyle doesn't have the same appreciation for music as I do. Unless it's Jason Aldean's 'Big Green Tractor', he doesn't relate. Now, I love playing music loud in the car when I have my 4 year old neice, Kendyl with me. She LOVES music. She sings with me. She does a lot of foot tapping and head bobbing. It's just fun.
If you know me, you probably know that I have an unhealthy infatuation for Keith Urban. I really love him and his music. But yesterday, in the car, a new John Mayer song came on. It's called 'Shadow Days'. I LOVE this song. I already really like John Mayer. Afterall, he had the good sense to have a Crossroads concert with Keith Urban. But I like him even more now.
We had a bad week with David this week. He had the flu one minute, and we were in the hospital the next. It happened so fast. He is just unable to digestively cope with belly issues. He has a hard enough time when he's well, so you can forget about it when he isn't. I think these were definitely some very shadowy days for all of us. We were tired. We were frustrated. We were unhappy. David was all of these things and then some. But now he's doing better. He's still a little tired. He's not near as frustrated. His belly issues are doing a little better. He can go back to school tomorrow to try to establish a routine again after a week. It is high time to put our shadow days behind us. I'm ready for some sunny days. Some beautiful ones that we can enjoy being outside with the kids.
Now, I do know that I will have more shadowy days. I get that. But this past week is gone and we can't get it back. I've said before that I would go through lots of bad days to get to the good ones. And I am eternally grateful for the good ones that I've been blessed with.
