Memorable Monday ~ Gary Allan

Memorable Monday is a meme hosted by Escape in a Good Book.  I'm excited to join in on this one because I love quotes, which was the driving force behind the creation of Memorable Mondays.  I thank the ladies at Escape in a Good Book.

So... how do you participate?  It's simple ~

1) Share a quote that has captured your interest lately in a Memorable Monday post on your blog.

2) Come back here and leave the link to your post in the comment box below.  If you don't have a blog, I'd still love to hear, well, read, your quote.  Leave it in the comment box instead of a link to a non-existent blog.  :)

3) Visit other participants if you have time.  It's always nice to have visitors.  There's no overstaying your welcome this way, and they don't have to offer the obligatory drinks.  Or clean.

4) If you tweet your posts, feel free to use the hashtag #MemorableMonday.

This week's choice:

This week's choice for me comes from a song. There's been a lot going on in my life in the past few months, and this song speaks to the optimistic side of me. I try to remember not only the sentiment behind this song but that things could always be worse. I'll post the video with it (forewarning: It's a country song, so if you don't prefer country or hate it enough it makes you want to run screaming, don't hit play... ;) ), so I'll only post a few lines.

"And when you fall back down, keep on rememberin'
Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain."

  1. Since you know how much I LOVE country music, I won't go listen (pretty sure I've heard this one anyway), but still a great quote! I should have read it yesterday when I could have used the reminder ;)

    Hmmm. What one am I feeling this fine Tuesday morning ...

    Let's stay with your music theme (since my current book isn't in the room with me to pull from):

    “There's a hard life for every silver spoon.
    There's a touch of gray for every shade of blue.
    That's the way I see life.
    If there was nothing wrong...
    Then there'd be nothing right.”

    ― Shinedown, Shinedown: The Sound of Madness

    Don't know if this is true, but it does give a different perspective to the crappy stuff in life =)

    1. I do love Shinedown's lyrics to nearly every song. :) Seriously... they are awesome. But you know this. ;)

      I don't know. I think it's true. The bad makes you appreciate the good. Not that the bad doesn't suck, but it makes the good that much better.


Thank you so much for taking your time to share your thoughts! I try to respond to everyone. :)
