Bad Day...

I have had a horrible day, and needed something a little uplifting so I thought I would share this song with you. I don't really want to get into it, but the short version is this: Someone called child protective services on us and made an accusation that makes me sick to even think about. My beautiful little girl had to go through a very personal exam by a complete stranger, just for them to figure out that nothing has happened to her. (DUH!) They are dropping the case, but the whole experience was very upsetting to our family.
This is one of my favorite artists, mainly because she seems to be in my head. Enjoy. I probably will not post for a few days while I am recovering emotionally from the trauma inflicted upon my family today. I will be back eventually though.

Something Beautiful
-Natalie Grant

This is a song for anyone whose ever been
Knocked down and can't get back again
Stuck in the corner, and cant move forward
All alone and you think you're going nowhere
This is a song for anyone who's ever stood
Underneath the sun
And felt so small two feet tall and so out of place
He sees you- He knows you- He loves you
And he wants you to know that

(Chorus)
The life you've been living
the days that You've been given
Were made for something Beautiful
Life- don't let it pass you by
Because you were created for something Beautiful

Heaven holds a dream that's just for you
And there are things only you can do
So step By faith, put the past away
It'll take you to a better day
Second to Minute to hour to life
Time always seems to fly
It's on the go and before you know
Your days are through
But he sees you- He knows you- he loves you
And he wants you to know that

(Chorus)
The life you've been living
the days that You've been given
Were made for something Beautiful
Life- don't let it pass you by
Because you were created for something Beautiful

What are - you waiting for
What are you - waiting for
What - are you waiting for

Something Beautiful

So sorry you had to deal with that on top of everything else. I hope you and your family are feeling better soon.

Sol - Thank you. Right now we are too concerned about what damage the whole ordeal may have done to Samantha than finding and hurting the person who was stupid enough to think we would ever hurt her. Yes, we are angry, but I think we are hurt more than anything else.

Siren - Thank you. Most people have no idea the real meaning behind "what doesnt kill you makes you stronger". We do. We will not let this kill us, and we will be a stronger family for it. (a much less trustful family, but still stronger)

Melissa ~ Samantha is kinda young to realise..imo.

however, go with prudence on this.
just make sure you never trust those people again..and hire someone if necessary to dig up *real* dirt on their family as collateral in case they decide to pull this kinda stunt again.

distasteful..but necessary @ times like these!!
