The Baby

Heard a song yesterday that I haven't heard in a while. The song is by country artist Blake Shelton and is called The Baby.

The lyrics that clicked with me were:

I got a call in Alabama,
said come on home to Louisianna
and come as fast as you can fly.
Cause your momma really needs you,
and says she's got to see you,
she might not make it through the night.
The whole way I drove 80
so she could see her baby.

She looked like she was sleepin'
and my family had been weepin'
by the time that I got to her side.
And I knew that she'd been taken,
and my heart it was breakin',
I never got to say goodbye.

I softly kissed that lady
and cried just like a baby.

The night my mom passed away I had driven back to Nacogdoches for the night. The phone rang just past 10:30PM. By 10:45PM my ex was driving me to Houston.....hazard lights on...speeding. Rough night indeed.

Still coughing. CareNow called and stated my chest X-rays were "inconclusive" and that I should have another if I still feel sick.

Just keeps getting better.
