My Favorite...For Today

Thoughts of my Oklahoma home are flooding over me today. It's funny though...after moving around from here to there...you figure out that home isn't really a place, necessarily. It's the people you love. Even still, I feel that a place certainly can make you relive memories and feelings. That is what Oklahoma and the people there do for me. They help me to remember wonderful memories and wonderful feelings. Feelings of love, security, friendship, and familiarity.

Although, Farm Boy and Q-Tip are my home...wherever we may be. I will forever refer to Oklahoma as one of my homes. And although I am more secure and happy wherever Farm Boy and Q-Tip are...sometimes you need that familiarity of the place you grew up.

This is my favorite for today...once again...it's a Miranda Lambert song off of her new album Revolution. I catch myself having a Revolution with Miranda quite often lately. She didn't write it but none-the-less...it's a good one and it hits the nail on the head for me today.

The House That Built Me
Tom Douglas / Allen Shamblin

I know they say you can’t go home again
I just had to come back one last time
Ma’am I know you don’t know me from Adam
But these handprints on the front steps are mine

Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar
I bet you didn’t know under that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it’s like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

Mama cut out pictures of houses for you
From Better Homes and Gardens magazine
Plans were drawn and concrete poured
Nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to mama’s dream

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it’s like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it’s like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

Hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!
