Time of Our Lives

Recently I finally caved in and added Miley Cyrus's song "Party in the USA" to my work out play list. It just pumps me up. I love it.
Well I was listening to more of her songs to find out if there were any other "quality" songs. I ended up just buying the whole album at Wal-Mart (yep theyve got a monopoly on the CD I wanted.) and the  lyrics to the song "Time of Our Lives" (listen here) particularly touched me. I called Luke right away if these could be our first dance lyrics and we could do something particularly creative the way they do on that fun wedding dance TV show, but for some reason he just couldn't get past the Miley Cyrus-ness of the song. Understandable.
The lyrics just seemed particularly applicable because in all this stuff with my mom I'm having to learn that I "just gotta let it go," and that I really need to "have the time of my life" with all the other exciting things that are going on. Luke will be working on building his golf resume so we'll be going "wherever the wind blows" us but "I'm there, as long as we're together, Alright!" haha. 
Ohhh my life is a Miley Cyrus Song.  I've always thought that when I die I'd like to have a sound track of my life at my funeral. I'd like the cover photo to be one of my senior pictures with me on my (Uncle Russel's) '72 VW Bug, and and the song There She Goes by Six Pence None The Richer would be track one. I always like to start a good road trip with that one. Looks like Time of Our Lives is number 2!


Time of Our Lives
Seems like we're holdin' on forever


Just gotta let it go
Times up,you pushed me to surrender.

Who knows,what happens now,whatever

Wherever the wind blows

And I'm there as long as we're together
Alright..


(Chorus) Lets have the time of our lives

Like there no one else around

Just throw your hands up high

Even when they try to take us down

We'll have the time of our lives

'Til the lights burn out

Lets laugh until we cry

Life is only what you make it now

Lets have the time of our lives!

(lives..lives..lives..)



Dreamers,dont care if its right

I think Im really into you

Restless,lets leave it all behind
Crazy,when you cross my mind

Oh the trouble we could get into

So what,lets just give this a try

(Chorus)

What are we waitin' for?

Take that chance

Now's all we've got for sure



Lets have the time of our lives

Like there no one else around

Just throw your hands up high

Even when they try to take us down

We'll have the time of our lives

'Til the lights burn out

Lets laugh until we cry

Life is only what you make it now

Lets have the time of our lives!

I'm sure your mom would want you to have the "time of your life". (Well, speaking as a mom... make that "within reason", of course. ;) ) This IS such a special time in your life, and I'll bet your mom is saddened that her health has put such a damper on it. Everyone knows you love her. Your still enjoying life does not mean you don't care about what happens with her. So keep on loving your mom and showing her in every way you can... and enjoy YOUR life besides. Be happy... I'll bet you a million dollars that that's what your mom wants for you!
