A tribute to my Aunt Blye, my Aunt JoEllen, and my Uncle Tim... Rest in Peace

While I was in Railay, I was walking up and down the beach and listening to my ipod and this song by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton came on and brought me to tears thinking of those I love who have passed on. I thought that I would share this song because I think anyone who has lost a loved one can take comfort from the lyrics and know that all of our loved ones are in a better place.

"When I get where I'm goin"

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
to ride a drop of rain

Chorus:
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin
They'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my Granddaddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I've missed him
Every minute since he left
And then I'll hug his neck

Chorus:
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin
They'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin
Don't cry for me down here

So much pain and so much darkness
This world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
And so much work to do

But, when I get where I'm goin
And I see my Maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his Amazing Grace!

Yeah when I get where I'm goin
But, when I get where I'm goin
They'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear

Chorus:
Yeah when I get where I'm goin
They'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin
Don't cry for me down here

spence and i have an important question and if you can write me as a comment on my blog so i don't forget that'd be great. thanks!

did you and taylor take malaria pills while in se asia? we bought some and have them with us but are skeptical of taking them wondering if they're not important or if there's much risk...we don't want to have bad reactions on the bus rides if you know what i mean. thanks girl.
