I hardly ever listen to country music.
But as I drove down the highway today,
flipping through the radio stations,
I ran across an old favorite,
and couldn't help but think how
perfectly the lyrics remind me of this day
\\\\\\\\ a cool spring breeze and a sunny sky
\\\\\\\\\ boyfriend jeans and my two favorite boys
\\\\\\\\\ smiles from my parents as they watched their precious grandson play
\\\\\\\\\\\ quacking ducks and weeping willows
"It's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?"
So, thanks for the reminder, Travis Tritt.
It is INDEED a great day to be alive.
