There's Glitter in the Air

I heard this song on the radio last night by Pink and was thrust into a state of nostalgia.  I was coming home from an evening of peace so graciously provided by my husband who knew I had a bad day.  He told me to go out and I felt much more refreshed when I did.  Anyhow this song came on on the ride home, not typically a Pink fan, but I really liked the lyrics. 

Glitter In The Air lyrics

Songwriters: Mann, Billy; Moore, Alecia;

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face
And said I just don't care?

It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn
The thunder before lightning, the breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
Your whole life waiting on the ring to prove you're not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It's only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table, the walk before the run
The breath before the kiss and the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee, calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight? Tonight

Anyhow after listening to the song I started to look at how cute my children really are.  Like how cute it is when my daughter puts popcorn into her little mouth. The popcorn is so much bigger in proportion to her face.  Then as I looked up the stairs I saw how my 4 year old had gotten his PJs on.  There was one article of his clothing on each step of the stairs.  The whole downstairs was T-R-A-S-H-E-D.  Which was horrible if you remember how many hours I just spent deep cleaning it, but I just smiled.  And I felt happy.  And I remembered that a clean organized house isn't always necessary to be ungrumpy.
