"This"

I heard a song for the first time today on the long drive back from Des Moines. The lyrics hit home so I wanted to share. It's written from a man's perspective... but you get the idea ;)

*Got a baby girl sleeping in my bedroom
And her momma laughing in my arms
There's the sound of rain on the rooftop
And the game's about to start
I don't really know how I got here
But I'm so glad that I did
And it's crazy to think that one little thing
Could have changed all of this
Maybe it didn't turn out like I planned
Maybe that's why I'm such a lucky man

Like the girl that I loved in high school
Who said she could do better
Or the college I wanted to go to - till I got that letter
All the fights and the tears and the heartache
I thought I'd never get through
And the moment I almost gave up -
All led me here to you
I didn't understand it way back when
But sittin' here right now - it all makes perfect sense

Every stoplight I didn't make
Every chance I did or I didn't take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn't know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to this

I cried when my momma passed away
And now I got an angel
Looking out for me today
So nothing's a mistake...

Cuz it led me here to this...
