a light at the end of the tunnel

Hiya all....I hope you are all having a wonderful day. I heard this earlier...and it seemed to really hit home for me. So I wanted to share the lyrics. Its a country song....so if you dont like country...you're missin out! :)

Lady Antebellum
One Day You Will

You feel like you're falling backwards
Like you're slippin' through the cracks
Like no one would even notice
If you left this town and never came back
You walk outside and all you see is rain
You look inside and all you feel is pain
And you can't see it now

But down the road the sun is shining
In every cloud there's a silver lining
Just keep holding on (just keep holding on)
And every heartache makes you stronger
But it won't be much longer
You'll find love, you'll find peace
And the you you're meant to be
I know right now that's not the way you feel
But one day you will

You wake up every morning and ask yourself
What am I doing here anyway
With the weight of all those disappointments
Whispering in your ear
You're just barely hanging by a thread
You wanna scream but you're down to your last breath
And you don't know it yet

[Repeat Chorus]

Find the strength to rise above
You will
Find just what you're made of, you're made of

[Repeat Chorus]

One day you will
Oh one day you will

I love you all

Thanks for sharing that, Heather!
I appreciate you!

And, I appreciate a lot of country music, rock, jazz, blues, classical, folk, natural (like raindrops, waterfalls, ocean waves, sea gulls, coyotes... etceteras)... and sometimes I even appreciate a little of my own! (Rarely, but sometimes... my own!) :wink:

Thanks, Heathery!

Nice one. Finding sobriety everywhere, in the strangest places. Like CW music.

"I've got friends in low places", too. :lol:

You just redeemed that song for me.

Thanks, hon.
