Is there life out there?

Those of you that know me well know that I am always listening to the words to songs. I have had a lot of time alone lately - in the car and on planes traveling mostly - to think about my life ... you know, the "what if's". During one of these times this song just kept coming into my head over and over. I have been through a lot in life - the highs, the lows - and learned from every one of them but you still have to wonder sometimes .. what else is out there? What if???

"IS THERE LIFE OUT THERE" (performed by Reba McEntire)
She married when she was twenty
She thought she was ready
Now she's not so sure
She thought she'd done some living
But now she's just wonderin'
What she's living for
Now she's feeling that theres something more

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there

She's always lived for tomorrow
She's never learned how
To live for today
She's dyin' to try something foolish
Do something crazy
Or just get away
Something for herself for a change

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there


There's a place in the sun that she's never been
Where life is fair and time is a friend
Would she do it the same as she did back then
She looks out the window and wonders again

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there


Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there

Man....I ask myself the same thing all the time....when that happens you need to do something exciting. Lets go sky diving?!?!

I was listening to a song the other day in my car (one that always makes me cry...yet feel good at the same time) and I thought to myself...I need to make a copy of this and give it to Jenn. I'm going to do it...now that I know you are a "song girl!" ;)

That's deep. Pondering is good. I had a "what if moment" a few weeks ago at the side of a pool. The funny thing is as I kept thinking about it, it became really clear why I didn't pursue that path. It can go either way.

Yes there is lifge out there--but the older you get the more you realize that the life out there has no comparison to your life as a family and in your home. Remember no one said it would be easy--just that it would be worth it!
