"You're going to miss this
You're going to want this back
You're going to wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're going to miss this"
by Trace Adkins
First off, you need to know I DON"T listen to country music. I don't like most of it and the songs I do like tend to be OLD.
However, my cousin shared the lyrics to this song on FB, and it struck me.
As much as I hate not having my own kitchen, living room and dining room-
As much as I long to have my own bathroom to decorate my own way-
As much as I hate cleaning up after my mom and sister-
As crowded as this house is-
As much as I am tired of my mom telling me 'the correct way' to do something-
As loud as this house is with 6 people-
And our finances so tight-
And living in the cold and dark of Alaska-
There will come a day when I look back on this time as precious:
Because of my girls being little & giggly.
Because my mom is right here when I need her.
Because I can leave my girls with my mom to go grocery shopping.
Because I bead with my sister in the evening.
God, help me look at the positive side of living here with my family so tightly squeezed into this house. Help me remember to enjoy what I have before it is gone.
And so it goes.
