My Next 30 Years

I thought this would be appropriate as a continuation of my last post. This is a song written by Phil Vassar (my favorite country artist) and made popular by Tim McGraw. I listened to it this morning on my way to school, and it put me in quite the good mood. Not all of the lyrics apply, but I love the sentiments.

"My Next 30 Years"

I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now its time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I'm gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I'm doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, I'm gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I'll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years.

can you believe how long it's been since those crazy days in Dunlap?! sometimes I think about our late night talks in the car and drives to "town" and it doesn't seem possible that here we are over 10 years later. thanks for being a great friend, especially through the drama-filled days of our teen years. may God continue to bless your next thirty years! love you!
