Carrie----can you please stop making me cry?

Carrie Underwood....you have done it again! This girl can do no wrong in my book. I love everything she does and I love how she is true to her faith. She never shy's away from her Christianity or puts in on the back burner. She is truly an inspiration and someone to look up to. Plus her voice is just one of the best EVER! 


Her new CD came out this week and on it there are 2 songs I bawled over. A lot of people thought she was going to do a whole CD dedicated to her new baby or a CD about love but she stated that having a baby didn't change who she was in her music. She didn't want to do that. But there is 1 song dedicated to her baby called What I Never Knew I Always Wanted. For those of you who don't know, I never saw myself being a mom. It was something I just didn't want. I wanted to have a husband who I traveled with and I wanted to be a professional business women. I wanted to be very successful in what I did. And I thought being a mom/having a baby would get in the way of that. So I just never saw it in my cards. But God works in mysterious ways and teaches us we are on his time, in his world, and things we think we want, we don't need. And things we think we don't need, we in reality do. With that said, Carrie's song for Isaiah What I Never Knew I Always Wanted is my story when it comes to Brody. 

"Never was the kind to think about dressing in white
Wasn't waiting on a prince to come riding into my life
Thought I was happy on my own
'Til you came and proved me wrong

I finally found what I never knew I always wanted
I couldn't see; I was blind 'til my eyes were opened
I didn't know there was a hole
Something missing in my soul
'Til you filled it up with your love, yeah

Never pictured myself singing lullabies
Sitting in a rocking chair in the middle of the night
In the quiet, in the dark
You're stealing every bit of my heart with you daddy's eyes
What a sweet surprise 

And now I'm holdin' what I never know I always wanted
I couldn't see; I was blind 'til my eyes were opened
I didn't know there was a hole
Something missing in my soul
'Til you filled it up, oh, with your love

Life has a way of showing you just you need
And who you were made to be, yeah

I finally found what I never knew I always wanted
I couldn't see; I was blind 'til my eyes were opened
I didn't know there was a hole 
Something missing in my soul
'Til you filled it up with you love
Yeah, you filled it up with your love, yeah

I never was the kind to think about dressing in white
I never pictured myself singing lullabies"







The second song I bawled over was a song for her daddy. Y'all.....I couldn't even get through the first set of lyrics without crying. I have an incredible relationship with my dad. I am daddy's girl and I have been my whole life. And now that I have a son of my own, who is a momma's boy, I understand so much more about being a parent and a parent's love. I can't even read the lyrics without crying. I can't even listen to the song anymore. I just cry. I have no idea why song's about daddies make me cry but they do. But this song is so true for me. It's exactly how I feel about him and maybe that's why it makes me cry. Because all the things I wanna say...Carrie does it for me! 

The Girl You Think I Am
"Front row center in that little white church
I was singing at a baby laying in a manger
Eight years old wearing angel wings
Yeah, and to this day, that's what you see

I've been daddy's little girl since my first cry
And it was hard turning eighteen, saying goodbye
You told me I was gonna take the world by storm
And Mama said you cried all the way home

You think I'm strong, you think I'm fearless
Even when I'm, I'm at my weakest
You always see the best in my when I can't
I wanna be the girl you think I am

I got my flaws and I've got regrets
And I know there's more on the road ahead
When I wonder if I'll ever measure up
Oh, I thank God for a father's love

Cause you think I'm brave, and you think I'm beautiful
You think I can do the impossible
You always see the best in me when I can't
I wanna be the girl you think I am

Oh, whoa
Oh, whoa
The girl you think I am, yeah
Ooh
Ooh, yeah

All I want, more than anything
Is to make you proud of me

Cause you think I'm strong, and you think I'm fearless
Even when I'm, I'm at my weakest
You believe in me; yeah, you're my biggest fan
So I wanna be the girl you think I am
I wanna be the girl you think I am"





Thank you Carrie for once again reminding me of the bigger things in life. That God does things for a reason, even if we can't understand it or see it. Thank you for making me feel something and telling a story that hits true to home for me.
