I'm Alive!

I love it when I hear a song and it appeals to me from the first note til the last. So is the case when I heard the duet of Kenney Chesney and Dave Matthews, I'm Alive!
It has a message I love and the melody is relaxing and beautiful.

"So darn easy to say that life's so hard
Everbody's got there share of battle scars
As for me I'd like to thank my lucky stars that I'm alive and well
It'd be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you sat and watched go up in flames,
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me....
I'm alive and today that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life and I'm alive and well."

Have a great day all!

Actually, I guess you could say that I'm sticking to the theme of this song you posted. It's a great message, and I've decided that in the scheme of things college football is not very important.

I do love it, however, and one day we'll get another big win over Alabama.

I thought about blogging about the difference in being a visitor at Alabama vs. being a visitor at Auburn. At Auburn they welcome you to their campus and bring you food. At Alabama, if they don't say something ugly to you, they just ignore you. However, I've got too many friends who are Alabama fans, and I wouldn't do anything to offend them.

Here's hoping for a better outcome against A&M. I won't get to watch the game, however, because we will be at a wedding for a good friend's daughter. Oh well.

Good song and great lyrics. We had a bad start to the week with a robbery at our boat dock. It's the world we live in and sometimes it stinks!

I'll have to find this and listen to it - the words are perfect.

I haven't heard this one, but I love the train of thought behind the lyrics! ( I do have to admit to whining sometimes about being so far from my little munchkin! LOL)
