some inspiration

I said in my blog yesterday that my kids were obsessed with this song, but every day it becomes a little bit more like our anthem. Here are the words - hope they make you smile tonight. Also, if Nick and I were ever to write a song about one another, it would say all of these things:). Not that we're obsessed with being rich - but making the world better than we found it. Whether it is by teaching people how to dance or sharing Christ with them.

you & I
by Ingrid Michaelson
don't you worry, there my honey
we might not have any money
but we've got our love to pay the bills

maybe I think you're cute and funny,
maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you,
if you know what I mean

Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there, you and I, you and I, you and I,

well you might be a bit confused
and you might be a little bit bruised
but baby how we spoon like no one else
so I will help you read those books
if you will soothe my worried looks
and we will put the lonesome on the shelf

oh let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there you and I, you and I, you and I

oh, let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there you and I, you and I, you and I

I dare you to download this song, turn it up & dance to it. It will make you a happier person.

This is the line that makes me think of us...

"so I will help you read those books
if you will soothe my worried looks"

You help soothe my worried looks all day long. I would love to help you read books...unless it is fiction. You can read three vampire fiction books in a day or less.

I could help you read those non-fiction books.

Anyway, that is my favorite line.
