See You Again

Ever since the wedding Jeremy & I attended last Saturday we have done some wedding talk! Exciting, I know! I could picture every detail we went over and talked about and it was beautiful and made my heart fill with joy thinking about the day I will marry my best friend. But the one thing I cannot and kind of don't want to picture is me walking down the aisle and being given away. I cannot imagine anyone giving me away besides my father, this crushes me to think about how he will not be there to give me away. Since this wedding talk and beautiful visions of weddings it has got me thinking about my dad and how I will see him again one day, just not in this lifetime. I will see him in heaven and he will be there to hug me and love me and he is watching over me every single day. He may not physically be there to walk me downy he aisle but he will be in spirit, he will be there in thought and in my heart. 

Onto where this story is actually going- I am not much of a country music fan but every once in awhile I will crank up Carrie Underwood and get in a girl-rock-out mood. I was hesitant to buy her whole new album so I previewed the whole album on iTunes the other day. The third or fourth song was See You Again, I was sold. I bought the album. The song just spoke to me, she is saying that no matter what, she's going to go to the ends of the earth to see you again. No matter what I will see my Daddy again and it will be beautiful! He is looking down on me and I know I truly will never be alone, he is always here with me. 

It's just funny how a song can speak such volumes to someone. I love how the song is so powerful but in no way is it sad, it puts a smile on my face for all the right reasons! :)
 I couldn't have thought for better words and music to describe how I feel about seeing my daddy again one day. 


Said goodbye, turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone
Faded into the setting sun,
Slipped away
But I won’t cry
Cause I know I’ll never be lonely
For you are the stars to me,
You are the light I follow

I’ll See you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
Till I see you again

I can hear those echoes in the wind at night
Calling me back in time
Back to you
In a place far away
Where the water meets the sky
The thought of it makes me smile
You are my tomorrow

I’ll See you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
Till I see you again

Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking
But I stay strong and I hold on cause I know
I’ll see you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, yeah yeah

I’ll See you again, oh
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
Till I see you again
Till I see you again,
Till I see you again,
Said goodbye turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone.


Have any of y'all downloaded her new album? It is quite amazing, as always, she rocks it!
