The World

A comment my Mom (Nana) made on my last post got me thinking about a great song by Brad Paisley called "The World". We listen to this song all the time around here, it is one of Marissa's favorites.

To the waiter at the restaurant

You're just another tip

To the guy at the ice cream shop

You're just another dip

When you can't get reservations

'Cause you don't have the clout

Or you didn't get an invitation

'Cause somebody left you out

That's alright, that's ok

When you don't feel important honey

All I've got to say is

To the world

You may be just another girl

But to me

Baby, you are the world

You think you're one of millions but you're one in a million to me

When you wonder if you matter, baby look into my eyes

And tell me, can't you see you're everything to me

That's alright, that's ok

When you don't feel important honey

All I've got to say is

To the world

You may be just another girl

But to me

Baby, you are the world

I love that song! And, this song really fits inspirational Marissa!

Some days I think that people must get sick of reading my blog because it's mostly about Gavin. And, I'm sure that many people think "What's the big deal about him? He can hardly do anything." But, for this Momma, he is the world to me and I find a lot more perfection in him than most people probably do.

I know that Marissa has really touched my heart and I love her to pieces, so the feelings that you have for her must be HUGE! Love that girl! She is one special gift to this world!

Have a great weekend! Love, Hugs and Prayers!!!

What an amazing song!! I love it! Sorry I haven't been able to comment. So back to the previous post. I am so happy that she is saying Daddy. She is such an amazing little girl with her cute little okay big personality. LOL

I love the "small things"

Yay for D's!

Wow! I listen to Brad Paisley's songs quite often but didn't realize my comments were so close to what the words of this song covey. But it's true. Thank you for sharing the words to this song to remind us of what we all see and know...in spite of the world! Love you guys....thanks for sharing.

My husband and I have a 7 month old with a trach and g-tube. She just came home in November. While in the hospital, we also found the song "It Won't Be Like This For Long" by Darius Rucker to be very fitting for our situation.
