Live Like You Were Dying...

I heard this great song while driving to work this morning. Just want to share it with you, when you have 5 minutes...between tasks. Save this for home if you are busy.

We get caught up sometimes.

Hope this year is going to be a special one for you.

Live Like You Were Dying ~ Tim McGraw

He said I was in my early forties with a lot of life before me
when a moment came that stopped me on a dime
and I spent most of the next days looking at the x-rays
talking bout the options and talking bout sweet time.
I asked him when it sank in this might really be the real end
How it hit you when you get that kinda news?
'Man, what you do...'

and he said...

I went sky diving, I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named 'Fu Manchu'
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

He said I was finally the husband that most the time I wasn't
and I became a friend a friend would like to have
and all the sudden going fishing, wasn't such an imposition
and I went three times that year I lost my dad
well I finally read the Good Book and I took a good long hard look
at what I'd do if I could do it all again

and then...

I went sky diving, I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named 'Fu Manchu'
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
what'd you do with it what did you do with it
what did I do with it
what would I do with it?

Sky diving, I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named 'Fu Manchu'
and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I watched an eagle as it was flying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

To live like you were dying

To live like you were dying

To live like you were dying

To live like you were dying

Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
what'd you do with it what did you do with it
what did I do with it
what would I do with it? 

all the time, we jus take each day for granted.

I keep an open mind about music and I love many types of music ( jazz, r & b, soft rock, oldies and even rap/ dance music ). I never really took the time to listen to " country " .  But I must say this is the most inspirational song I've ever heard. 

I really try to live by it. Live today as if it were the last. Take time to appreciate every little detail of today, from driving your children to school, appreciating the work you do and the people you enteract with, the food you eat and the evening hours you spend with your spouse and children....who knows if there will be tomorrow?

This is a great song and it almost made me cry the first time i heard it. If I could, I would make sure every person in America could hear it.
