day 16 {song that brings tears}

well, i know that i've cried over several songs but of course now that i am going to write about it i can't remember more than one. go figure. i don't consider myself an emotional person but during pregnancy and after james was born my motherly hormones were in full force and i was crying over everything - songs, commercials, grey's anatomy, everything. i once thought i was crazy but now i just think that it was just the transformation into motherhood. i'm more compassionate now. i like children more - i knew i'd like my own but now i like other people's children. i think differently. i like the new me.

one song that has brought tears to my eyes is remember when by alan jackson.

Remember when I was young and so were you
and time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet
was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when

Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookn' back it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are,
Where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when

Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when

i love the line "when the sound of little feet was the music we danced to week to week" and then when he talks about getting old and turning gray. it warms my heart and occasionally brings me to tears. we have the sound of little feet as music at my house and i love it. i'm not ready for it to go away.
