She's done it again!! Carrie Underwood's fourth album has hit the shelves and y'all, I've been waiting for a looooong time for today to come around, like since her last album was released back in 2009! I just love Carrie! She's beautiful with an even more beautiful voice and just seems like we could be friends!
My favorite song so far is "Good in Goodbye". It's a song about someone running into their ex and realizing now that even though it hurt at the time, that it was for a good reason that they went their separate ways. I guess I'm having an I really miss home day, because when I heard the song it really spoke to me as a sign that even though it was painful to leave home that it was for a good reason and will be worth it in the end. And like the lyrics say, I thought I deserved to not have to go anywhere to have everything I ever wanted. I thought I deserved to have my husband and my family and my job and my home all in the same place.
As bad as it was,
as bad as it hurt,
I thank God I didn't get
what I thought that I deserved.
leads you down a different road,
when you're holdin' on to something
that you gotta let go.
Someday you'll see the reason why.
There's good in goodbye.
The difference for me was that I didn't have to wait until someday to see the reason why. I got the clarity and happy ending that I needed the minute I had to say goodbye to my friends, family, job, and home. He was standing at the end of the altar waiting for me almost a year ago. And I know that this move will be good for us. I know it will make us stronger and more united in our marriage. I just have to wait and see about the details.
