Perfect Mother's Day Song

I had a great Mother's Day today starting with breakfast in bed by my sweet middle child, my first one ever that I can remember. Cereal and milk. I did give him directions for how to make my coffee and he did great. I got lots of homemade cards, my oldest made brownies for me all by himself, and my hubby bought me two CD's and a book I wanted. Dinner out and a nap all equals up to a great day.
One of the CD's was the new one by The Afters, Life is Beautiful. I was listening to my favorite song off of it tonight while taking the boys to Sonic for milkshakes (because nothing ends a great day quite as well as a Sonic milkshake) and thought what a great Mother's Day song it was.
You can listen HERE.

Every Good Thing
I tend to be busier than I should be
And I tend to think that time is gonna wait for me
Sometimes I forget and take for granted
That it's a beautiful life we live
I don't wanna miss the moments like this
This is a beautiful life You give

You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing...

There will be days that give me more than I can take
But I know that You always make beauty from my heartache
Don't wanna forget or take for granted
That it's a beautiful life we live
I'm not gonna miss the moments like this
This is a beautiful life You give

You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing...

It's our family, it's our friends
It's the feeling that I get when I see my children smile
You're the reason for this life, everything we love
It's You alive in us
You're alive in us

You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing...

You are, You are here in every moment,
And I know that You're every good thing
You are, You are here in every moment,
And I know that You're the reason for
Every good thing, every good thing...


I was listening to it as my middle one was reading to my younger one a story he had written, and I had to smile. I am so thankful for my husband, our sweet children, our calling in life and the journey that the Lord has brought us on, even the difficult parts. And I don't want to take it for granted.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17.
