A Little Bit Stronger

I like country music. I like the tunes and I like the stories that go along with them. Usually I think it's the words that get me hooked though and the more they relate to my life the better. In fact, that is what I like most about any kind of music. I like listening to the lyrics and relating them to my life. I've even been known to rewrite lyrics to better fit my story. I know it's cheesy, girly even. I don't really care, I still like it.

So I was driving to work the other day and a new one hit me--some of it. It doesn't really fit because it's a getting-over-a-boyfriend type song and I didn't lose a boyfriend. I did lose a boy though, and it really did break my heart.

Woke up late today,
and I could still feel the sting of pain,
but I brushed my teeth anyway.
Got dressed through the mess, and
put a smile on my face.
I got a little bit stronger.


I know my heart will never be the same. 
But I'm telling myself I'll be OK,
even on my weakest day.
I get a little bit stronger.

Here's to getting a little bit stronger, and becoming a little bit better.

When I walked into your hospital room I saw you holding your baby boy. Then I saw Justin holding YOU. At that moment I knew that together you would strengthen each other and eventually heal. I love you, and I love Justin for taking care of you!

I can only imagine what you and Justin must be feeling right now. I am sorry for what happened. You and Justin seem to be a perfect support for each other. It's good to hear that you are getting better and better each day. We love you!
