No Matter Where

I’d tell you that I’m always with you
For I am
But my soul will still reach for you
Even if I was right in front of you

The Ones Who Got Me Here


Talking with my much better, definitely better looking, half today…  (Shameless plug: Check out how beautiful she is by clicking here!).  She once again brought my thoughts around, as she effortlessly and gracefully does, to being thankful.  My list, is honestly, endless.  Look at that… Another thing to be thankful about.

A dear friend of mine recently posted something speaking about happiness being a choice.  A quote by Ralph Marston – “Happiness is a choice, not a result.  Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy.  No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy.  Your happiness will not come to you.  It can only come from you.”  (Thanks Penny for sharing that!).

Somewhere along my path the last few years I lost sight of this simple truth.  I guess this is where some would say I had something to learn; a lesson to go through, or even in some cases, I’ll admit, I was the lesson for someone else.

Where I am today though, is thankful.  I’ll just leave it at that.


The ones that I drank all those beers with
Made it through those high school years with
All those girls I loved who broke my heart
All those back roads I drove ’round on
That church pew that I got found on
That college town where I first got my start
The ones that said I’d never make it
The ones that said there’s your chance, go take it
Took all of you for me to get this far
Jobs along the way that paid me
People who dug deep to raise me
Made me who I am, you know who you are
All the haters, all the lovers
All the friends that are more like brothers
All the people I ain’t seen in too many years
All the faces in the bleachers
Never gave up on me teachers
Yeah this one’s for the ones who got me here

The Best Me

I’ve traveled a lot of ground.
Some highways.  Some dirt roads.
Some back alleys.  Some pristine streets.

They all went somewhere.  Led somewhere.
Sometimes there were detours.
Or an exit.  Maybe my GPS wasn’t updated.

It’s amazing what you realize though…
When you’re out of gas.
Your battery is dead.

Life led you right to where you’re supposed to be.

I came to life when I first kissed you
The best me has his arms around you
You make me better than I was before
Thank God I’m yours
The worst me is just a long gone memory
You put a new heartbeat inside of me
You make me better than I was before
Thank God I’m yours

Quite Like You

Jason Aldean – Girl Like You

I’ve never met a girl like you
That’s ever done it quite like you do
Your kiss is double-barrel bourbon on rocks
Your lips are just the cherry on top
I’ve never been high like this
Turn out the lights and let me breathe you in
Your eyes are so diamond, body so gold
And I don’t want to let you go
I’ve never met a girl like you

Two Friends

I was aware of my friend sitting next to me.  So much I wanted to say to him, but the words would never form.  It’s not that they didn’t exist; more of a bottleneck.

He knew though…  He knew…


Say hello to the pain
Hurting me so bad
Bleed the life from me, yeah
Bleed the life from me
Say a prayer sweet love
Will we let this go
I need to know from you, yeah
I need to know from you
If it’s all the same
I’m gonna play the game
Say not gonna break me

Time Flies

He didn’t know what to expect.  All he knew was he was called out to the hangar to accommodate a private hop.  It wasn’t on the flight schedule anywhere that he could see, which meant it was probably someone with more money than sense.

Rolling his toothpick around between his teeth, he went out to his plane to kick the tires and light fires.  He was hunched over, leaning into the cockpit, checking gauges when the woman’s voice caught his attention.  Closing the panel, he slid back down around the side, and saw who appeared to be his passenger.

Leaning against his bird, the tip of his tongue played with his toothpick as she approached.  Before he could ask her any questions, she handed him her small bag and began to climb into the plane, simply saying, “I don’t care where we go.  Just fly me there.”

“The bad news is, time flies. The good news is, you’re the pilot.”

Stand Down

All it took was one person to look him in the eyes.  They’d see everything.

Everything he had done… Everything he fought for… Everything he had seen, heard, felt… Everything he hoped for.  Everything he experienced… Then… And now.
That flag was his love and his heart.  All was for her.

It’s not over.  I got your six.

Dedicated to my veterans. Thank you.
