Trace Adkins - You're Gonna Miss This

I am NOT a country fan. But this song by Trace Adkins is awesome. How often do we tell ourselves that life will be better when.....we get married.....or when we get that big promotion...........or when you weigh a certain amount...............or when you are old enough to drive a car......or when I get that car and house!

The fact is that life is so fast that we must stop and enjoy every STAGE of life because once it's gone.........IT's GONE!!!

Life is not a dress rehersal! The lyrics in this song are true! Listen to them carefully!

Blessings to all!

Great lyrics! It did make me a bit nostalgic but I would have to say I'm extremely grateful to have arrived where I am right now.

I agree. I've known so many people who are always chasing the next thing in the belief that it will make them whole. Real happiness comes from kettlebells. Everyone knows that.

After talking with you at the CK-FMS, I know why you are glad to be where you are in life! You are a good man Franklin!

Real happiness does come from Kettlebells. Glad we found common ground on that :)

Amen brother. Right now is all there is. I'm NOT going to miss it.

Jordan is insane, by the way, but he's my bro. Franklin, too, and you, Franz. Only this, right now, is what we get. I'm glad to be around.

I actually am a country fan, and it is a very good song. Why country? After a certain age, or place in life, songs about angst and defiance really don't cut it for someone who is enjoying family and life. Many country songs are about appreciating the things you have in life, or respect working hard for something worthwhile. Sure, many music forms translate that in their own fashion, but for me, country can relax. Don't get me wrong, I still love many forms of music, but you will be surprised that one day, you may say you actually LIKE country :)!

Check out Kenny Chesney's There Goes My Life. You'll appreciate it the totality as a dad.

Aaron, I am glad you are around too!

Franz Snideman said...

Thanks Pete!

I see what you mean! That is probably why I like this song so much. Soon you and I will be touring the USA with our families singing our own country songs with our own country group. Although I can't sing too well. What about you bro?

I will look at the song you told me about!

I am a shower singer....only meant to be heard in the shower!!!

Familia is everything....good health is neck and neck with it so as to enjoy our family.

Always good to check out your blog, Franz. I am getting ready to run the four bridges half marathon in Folsom, Ca. Wish me luck!
