The Story of My Life

Feb 23, 2009

Before I stop all the drama, I’m sharing a nice song to describe my journey so far. I almost cried when I heard it on my playlist this morning. But I guess that is just a natural reaction. This is my first time to be away from home, after all.

Don’t Forget To Remember Me
Carrie Underwood

Eighteen years had come and gone
For momma they flew by
But for me they drug on and on
We were loading up that Chevy
Both tryin’ not to cry
Momma kept on talking
Putting off good-bye
Then she took my hand and said
“Baby don’t forget:

Before you hit the highway
You better stop for gas
And there’s a 50 in the ashtray
In case you run short on cash
Here’s a map and here’s a Bible
If you ever lose your way
Just one more thing before you leave
Don’t forget to remember me”

This downtown apartment sure makes me miss home
and those bills there on the counter
Keep telling me I’m on my own
And just like every Sunday I called momma up last night
And even when it’s not, I tell her everything’s all right
Before we hung up I said
“Hey momma, don’t forget:

to tell my baby sister I’ll see her in the fall
And tell me-maw that I miss her
Yeah, I should give her a call
And make sure you tell Daddy that I’m still his little girl
Yeah I still feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be
Don’t forget to remember me”

Tonight I find myself kneeling by the bed to pray
I haven’t done this in a while
So I don’t know what to say but
Lord, I feel so small sometimes in this big ol’ place
Yeah, I know there’s more important things, but
Don’t forget to remember me

Don’t forget to remember me
