Don't blink.

Our date to the Kenny Chesney concert last night- an annual tradition- was a much needed break from a crazy week.

One of his last songs was Don't Blink, and- although I've heard it a million times- it seemed to have new meaning hearing it live, with Kevin by my side.

Don't blink. Just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you're twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife.
Don't blink. Just might miss your babies growin' like mine did.
Turning into moms and dads; next thing you know your better half of fifty years is there in bed. And you're praying God takes you instead.
Trust me friend, one hundred years goes faster than you think.
So don't Blink.

It was an important reminder to slow it down and take every breath God gives you for what it's worth. And the perfect ending to our night out.

Amanda reported that Camden had a tough time at bedtime, so when we got home we scooped her up and put her in bed between us. This morning before I opened my eyes, I heard a little voice shriek with excitement, "Aaaahhh! You're home!"

Enjoy your family today.

{Thanks so much, Bobby & Amanda.}

I'm so glad you guys had a nice time! I still haven't seen Kenny live...hopefully next summer. I always hear about it when it's way too late.

We LOVE Kenny and LOVE this song! We see him every year as well, and always love it and always can't wait to see him again.

so true so true...will have to hear that song today...
I was told my therapist in college (yeah, had some issue back then!) that the years get faster and faster.

It scares me a bit.

We really have to take each day as a gift..even the bad ones.

Thanks for this post!
