Times Like These

Song time again!

This song seems to follow me. It was played on TV during 9/11. I've listened to it during harder times, it's one of my favorite songs. We played it during our wedding, I thought about it after giving birth to Christian and I was reminded by it recently. It really just fits with any life changing event.

Times Like These - Foo Fighters

I am a one way motorway
I'm the one that drives away
then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
burning off alone

it's times like these you learn to live again
it's times like these you give and give again
it's times like these you learn to love again
it's times like these time and time again

I am a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
to hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
do I stay or run away
and leave it all behind?

it's times like these you learn to live again
it's times like these you give and give again
it's times like these you learn to love again
it's times like these time and time again

I thought about this song again after I laughed so hard I literally felt myself starting to cry. Manny and I were goofing around and I started to laugh and then I couldn't stop. It was the kind of laugh that's uncontrollable, the kind you start to sound like an old smoker, you're laughing so hard. Then I started to cross this line where I thought I might burst into tears. I've never felt that way before. And I actually teared up. I started to think I haven't laughed this hard in such a long time. It was emotional just laughing. I had to get a hold of myself and luckily I could do that by looking at Manny's face again, which was intentionally continuing to make me laugh. I was cry-laughing so hard my eyes were puffy.

Christian had the most amazing OT person today. She was so in tune with him. She was new to him and we hadn't seen her before but I could tell she had a ton of experience. I loved her because she would "listen" to his body and every position she put him in she'd listen to his breathing and remark about what he was doing rather than what he wasn't doing. We're going back to her tomorrow morning. She did some new things with Christian which is always fun because some of the same things are done all the time and it gets to the point where I'm like - Is there anything else? Well, apparently there is! I heart her.
