On the Radio

I heard this on the way to work yesterday, on the radio.

It's not an anniversary
or a birthday
or any sort of special occasion.

We've been married 4 years, 3 months, 12 days.
We'll meet our first son in about three and a half months.
No milestones to celebrate-
just the realization that I couldn't make it without Josh.
That the Stuff of Life like grocery shopping and refinancing and choosing car insurance and mowing the lawn would be so much harder without him by my side.
That I wouldn't trade our big adventures and small adventures and boring weekends for the world.

I'm so glad Andrew Peterson is finally getting heard again. He's outstanding! I have his new CD in my car if you want to give the rest of it a listen.

Matt - I'd like that. When I heard this song, it reminded me of another song he has addressed to his wife (although not ABOUT her, like this one), "Nothing to Say". I like that one, too. I appreciate good lyric-writing.

I really like this song. Thanks for sharing it because I'll definitely be checking out some of his other songs.

You may have typo ... it says "That the Stuff of Life like grocery shopping and refinancing and choosing car insurance and mowing the lawn would be so much harder with him by my side." I think you mean withOUT him by your side
