If you have yet to hear the song "Fix you" by the band COLDPLAY, well then you just must.
Even if for one time, please look it up and listen to it...please.
Anyways, I was sitting here at my computer looking at e mails, checking schedules, blah blah blah...
When I hear this faint noise outside the window blowing through the wind...among the birds, the leaves, the Spongebob movie in the background, I hear music...I hear soft music.
My neighbor across the street had this song playing, and it is one of my favorite songs.
I don't listen to it too often because every time I do I end up in tears over it...
The words are just to close to my heart strings and I get lost in them every single time.
I honestly don't know what the song is truly about, but the words are absolutely beautiful, honest, and strike right to your heart.
Every time I listen to it I can't help but believe Coldplay was in my home watching my life like a fly on the wall and came up with this song :)
Watching me in my most vulnerable of times, when it is just Kannon and I talking on the couch together.
When we sit down after a long day and one of us ends up crying out of frustration, exhaustion, or both.
Or, even when we are laughing, crying from joy because we had a breakthrough...
Frozen moments that we as parents hold so close to our hearts, and sometimes just can't get out of our heads.
Moments we wonder mean anything, or if they ever will...I have to believe they will.
If all of this is going somewhere...if the years ahead will provide the proof we are looking for in our hearts.
Well, I pulled a few verses from the song that I thought were pertinent to my life, and I know others can relate to them on many different levels as well.
Just some food for thought, and thank you to Coldplay for such words when sometimes we don't have them...
When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you loose something you can't replace
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
And I will try to fix you
