The Day Before You...

Have you ever been driving and a song came on that just hit you? Right there in that moment it captured how you're feeling?

That happened to me the other day.

This is a song that I've heard millions of times. It's on my iPod. I usually don't plug it in in the car, but there was nothing on the radio during my long 1 hour commute home from work. I put it on shuffle and this came on.

It's Rascal Flatts "The Day Before You"

I sat there and listened to the words....

I had all but given up on finding the one 
that I could fall in to
the day before you.
I was ready to settle for
less than love and not much more
There was no such thing as a dream come true
But that was all the day before you

Now you're here and everything's changing
suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
and find out this promise is true
I will never have to go back to 
the day before you

In your eyes I see forever
Makes me wish that my life never knew
the day before you

Oh, but Heaven knows those years without you
were shaping my heart for the day that I found you
if you're the reason for all that I've been through
then I'm thankful for 
the day before you

Now you're here and everything's changing
suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
and find out this promise is true
I will never have to go back to 
the day before you

It was the last day that I ever lived alone
And I'm never going back
No I'm never going back...

Now you're here and everything's changing
suddenly life means so much
I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
and find out this promise is true
I will never have to go back to 
the day before you


It just hit me all at once.
 The words:

Oh, but Heaven knows those years without you
were shaping my heart for the day that I found you
if you're the reason for all that I've been through
then I'm thankful for 
the day before you
say it all to me...

I went through alot before I met John. Most of y'all know that if you've been following for awhile. (if not, click the "our love story" tab at the top). 

Even though that day seemed like one of the worst days of my life when it happened, I still am and will continue to be thankful God stepped in. It made me a stronger person and it's what brought me to John. All that I went through was just God's way of showing me that I could love and be loved so much more. In less than 6 months I finally get to marry my best friend, the love of my life. God truly knew what He was doing all along...

And John...
 I am grateful that I NEVER have to go back to the day before you. I love you babe.
