Music in general is awesome. Today's post is about country music though. Country music is to me what the bible is to most people. All it takes is one verse and my entire mood can change. No matter what song it is I always bring it back to my husband somehow. Either the lyrics reminds me of him or us or the guys voice sounds like Jon's. One thing I really love about my husband is that he has an amazing voice. He has that deep, deep voice that is just sooooo sexy. Put some Josh Turner on the radio and OHH MYYYY GOSHHHHHHH. (HUGE smiles on my face!)

Lately the song that really gets me is Man I wanna be by Chris Young. (Another favorite of mine.) If you haven't heard it here are some lyrics.

I wanna be a good man
A do like I should' man
I wanna be the kind of man the mirror likes to see
I wanna be a strong man
And admit that I was wrong, man
God I'm asking you to come change me
into the man I wanna be

There's anyway for her and me to make another start
Could you see what you could do
To put some love back in her heart
Cuz' it going to take a miracle
After all I've done to really make her see

That I wanna be a stay man
I wanna be a brave man
I wanna be the kind of man that she sees in her dreams
God, I wanna be your man
And I wanna be her man
God, I only hope she still believes
In the man I wanna be

Well, I know this late at night that talk is cheap
But Lord, don't give up on me

I wanna be a givin' man
I wanna really start livin' man
God, I'm asking you to come change me
into the man I wanna be

Not saying that Jon has done anything wrong but he is always working at being better for me. Even if he doesn't need to. He is always saying he doesn't deserve me and nonsense like that. What he doesn't see is that I really don't deserve such an amazing man like him. I feel like he is always trying to be this amazing person for me while I just sit back and enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, I have done a lot of growing up and maturing and had a lot of epiphanies. I am such a better person than when we started dating, believe me. But hearing this song makes me realize that I can always be better; We all can.
It makes you think that if only everyone just focused on the other person in the relationship like Jon does instead of themselves the world as a whole would be better off. Hmm.
