Oh what a world

I am almost always listening to music: while working on homework, cleaning my house, or driving. The point is that I love listening to music!  When it comes to my jams it Is very diversified. Recently one of my teammates Garrett introduced me to Kacey Musgraves and I could not stop listening to her new album “Golden Hour.” All of the songs on that album are great, but “Oh what a world” spoke to me in particular. In the song Kacey says

“Oh, what a world, don’t wanna leave
All kinds of magic all around us, it’s hard to believe
Thank God it’s not too good to be true
Oh, what a world, and then there is you”

The first part of these lyrics “Oh what a world, don’t wanna leave. All kinds of magic all around us, it’s hard to believe,” made me realize all the many amazing things we have in our world. We may not think about them on a daily basis and we most definitely take them for granted.  There are real things all around us that are beautiful; like a rainbow after the sky clears from a spring rain shower or looking up at a night sky full of stars that go on and on forever. Some magic that I take for granted is the beautiful music that is created for you and I to enjoy.

The second part of the lyrics is “and then there is you.” The people we are close to and that mean the most to us are magical as well. It is magical to have a strong relationship with the people you care for the promises that are kept, and memories made are very magical things.

“Thank god it’s not too good to be true.” I couldn’t say it any better myself! I am so thankful for all the magic we have the opportunity to enjoy in our lives. What are some things you take for granted in your life? Who are some of the people in your life that display magic? What do you do for them to show your appreciation? You can find magic wherever you look in this amazing world.
