Love Who You Love

Love Who You Love

Up at 30K feet, from Memphis to Orlando, listening to Rascal Flatts‘ new song, Love Who You Love, for about the sixth time.

However, this is the first time I’m actually listening to the words.

WOW!

What struck me is the story. It sounds like my story. It sounds like your story. It sounds like the story of most people’s lives.

Why?

Because I get so damned busy doing things, and keep promising I’ll get to the simple things. Like sitting so close, they can feel it.

Like stealing little moments. But becoming an actual habitual criminal, always stealing those little moments.

A note in a lunch box, or a purse. A voice message at work before she gets there. An extra visit to my son’s favorite store – The Lego Store at Downtown Disney.

Ya with me?

I can’t wait to get home, and hug them as hard as they’ll let me.

You know what, I actually could care less if you think this is too sappy or weak, or old fashioned.

If I don’t start changing a little, I’ll regret it a lot.

Thank you Rascal Flatts, for your song and it’s important reminder:

.

……… Love Who You Love ……………………..

I should have stolen every moment

Now there’s a page with not enough on it

Where you belong

I guess I never understand it

Why do we take it all for granted

Until it’s gone

Cause then it’s gone

Love who you love

With all that you have

And don’t waste the time that flies so fast

Love who you love

And say that you do

Hold on as tight as they’ll let you

Give all you got like it’s your last day

Your heart and soul before it’s too late

And pull ’em in

Sit close enough that they can feel it

Live every single breath that you’re breathing

Breathe it in

Again and again

Love who you love

With all that you have

And don’t waste the time that flies so fast

Love who you love

And say that you do

Hold on as tight as they’ll let you

Hold on…. Hold on….. Hold on…….
