Song

It has been a long time since I was so profoundly moved by a song. I heard one on the radio today that summed up how I've been feeling and why I scrapbook. An 18 year old girl tells her mom that she can't wait to leave for college and her mom tells her:

You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back
These are some good times, don't go so fast.


The rest is that the girl's dad comes to visit her first apartment after she gets married and he tells her it is nice. She says it's ok, but she can't wait to have kids and get a house, and he tells her the same thing:

You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back
These are some good times, don't go so fast.

The last verse of the song the girl has a repair person at her house and the kids are going wild. She apologizes to the repair man for the kids insane behavior and he says the same thing:

You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back
These are some good times, don't go so fast.


I don't even know who sings this song, but I was in tears in the car and almost had to pull over. I never cry at songs. But if I could pick one to sum up my life, that is it. I'm that girl, and I just want to appreciate everything right now, right this moment. That's what the layout is about. Maybe you know what I mean. Or maybe my hormones are completely out of whack. Hard to say.

so beautiful - how sweet to create a layout based on such emotion. I need to do that but I am such a crybaby when it comes to sad songs.

Oh, you "get" it...and that makes it even more sweet! I am thinking so much about that these days...and those days go by SO fast, and to appreciate our now is such a gift. I am not making sense, but I know you understand! Great page!!!! You are such a good mom.
