New obsession....

Tim McGraw
Not necessarily him, but a song from his last album.  Meanwhile Back at Mama's is the name and I cannot stop listening to that song.  I want to be Mama.  I want this to be Mama's house.  That's the whole point to us moving out here to the get that feel. 
The song reminds me of my Grandpa and Grandma's farm in Iowa.  It's not all entirely accurate to the lyrics, but it definatly had that feel.  Warmth. 
"Meanwhile back at Mama's
The porch lights on, come on in if you wanna
Suppers on the stove, and beer's in the fridge
Red sun sinking out low on the ridge

Games on the tube and daddy smoked cigarettes
Whiskey keeps his whistle wet

Funny the things you thought you'd never miss
In a world gone crazy as this"
I just want my kids to know joy in simple things.  Most days I feel like I fail at this, but then I hear a song like this and I remember what all the hard work was for and what all the hard work is still for.  So I have the porch light on and beer in the fridge, supper's on the stove....
I'll get there.
We will get there.
My mama and her mama....
