Greatest Lyric Ever

Sittin' here with my kids and my wife
Everything I hold dear in my life
We say Grace and thank the Lord
Got so much to be thankful for
Then it's up the stairs and off to bed
And my little (boy) says:
"I haven't had my story yet"
And everything weighing on my mind
Disappears just like that
(He) lifts (his) head off (his) pillow and (he) says
"I love you Dad"

And I don't know why they say grown men don't cry

"Grown Men Don't Cry" - Tim McGraw (I changed the pronouns from girl to boy because it resonates more with me).

I first heard this song Monday. I wept openly during that verse. Still do.

Thank you God, for my beautiful, amazing wife and my wonderful boys. No greater earthly gift have I (nor will I) received from you.
