'Cause I'm almost there...

Have you seen "The Princess and the Frog?" *Sigh* It's adorable. If you haven't seen it, come to my house now! I will gladly watch it with you.

I am, without a doubt, a child at heart. This movie went right to the top of my favorite Disney movie list within the first 20 minutes. Why? Because of the song, "Almost There."

Yes, the animation is classic.
Yes, the storyline is precious.
But there's just something about that song.

Since Monday, I have had this song stuck in my head and appropriately so.

Here I am.
2 tests away from the end of the semester.
2 weeks away from summer.
One semester away from graduation.

Oh yes- this song fits perfectly...

I don't have time for dancing
That's just gonna have to wait a while
Ain't got time for messing around
And it's not my style
This old town can slow you down
People taking the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
Getting closer and closer every day

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
People down here think I'm crazy, but I don't care
Trials and tribulations, I've had my share
There ain't nothing gonna stop me now 'cause I'm almost there

I remember Daddy told me, "Fairytales can come true
You gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you"
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys, I'm coming through

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
People gonna come here from everywhere
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there

There's been trials and tribulations
You know I've had my share
But I've climbed the mountain, I've crossed the river
And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
I'm almost there!

I know, I know. It's super cheesy. But when I find inspiration, be it from Wordsworth, Jesus,  or Disney, I embrace it. 

Anxious for the next chapter,

Hey sis,

I was overjoyed to see you following my blog. I have missed you so and think about you often. I have really missed hearing you sing watching you smile and getting hugs from you. Granddad has asked about you as well.I have tried to find your follow button but have become lost within your pages. It looks like all is going well with you, but you should know I would love to catch up with you. Talk to me if you need/want to.

In Him,

James

P.S. :( chicken fingers and chocolate milk.
