Ain't Nothin' Like...


I like most all kinds of music, including 'modern' country music. And one of our VERY favorite artists is Brad Paisley. We went to Knoxville last year to Brad's concert which was MARVELOUS!!! One of my favorite songs of his is one entitled, "Ain't Nothin' Like." Here are some of the words:

This old world is full of simple pleasures
They're all good but some are better

Ain't nothin' like finding that woman (man)
That you know you're gonna love for the rest of your life
And ain't nothin' like knowing the Lord's a comin'
Back one day to make you want to do right

Ain't nothin' like watchin' a bunch of young'ns
Run screamin' through the sprinkler in their little bare feet
And ain't nothin' like finding twenty dollars
In the pocket of the britches that you wore last week

Ain't nothin' like throwing a hula popper
Draggin' it across a spot a big 'un oughta be
And ain't nothin' like having him for supper
With some good hush puppies and some sweet iced tea

If you haven't heard this song, you need to listen to it! There is so much meaning in the simple things in life. For instance, what is better than seeing a Proud Papa with his baby girl? The picture above is me with my Daddy--taken back in 1942.

Also, there 'ain't nothin' like' waking up early in the morning hearing the Cardinals outside my window 'chipping' for their breakfast. There 'ain't nothin' like' seeing a gorgeous sunset, or walking in the woods and turning the corner only to see and hear a beautiful waterfall. It's just the simple things in life which are so important.
Hugs,

I don't believe I have heard this song.

What great memories Betsy! Indeed, it's the simple things that mean the most. Have a wonderful day!

There ain't nothin' like coming to bloggyland and reading your new post first thing in the morning, ready to praise the Lord, thank Him for His goodness and then get on with the day that He has made!

Jessica said...

This was a great post! Thanks for making me think of the simple things in my life..... I'm going to listen to that song today.

I actually prefer Brad Paisley's "The Fishin Song!" :-)

Mildred said...

So very true Betsy; so much to be thankful for each morning. Enjoy your day and I love the pic of you and your daddy.

Becky said...

Ain't nothin like it!

Great pos! There is a small town we visit in Tn.. When we are there everything slows down and the simple things are so much clearer.

If you get a chance swing by my blog, the pic. at the top is from Jackson County Tn. You can't find roads like that around here anymore.

I loved seeing the picture of you as a sweet little girl!! And I agree w/ you - the simple things in life are best! I still remember my husband and i kayaking together in the early morning last summer and the wonder we felt when we saw our loon family.

The Incredible Woody said...

You are so right. Now time to slow down and enjoy those simple things!

Just beautiful. Someone also say: "ain't nothing like the real thing" ;) way before Coke thought of it.
Have a lovely day!!

Rose said...

You said a lot here, Betsy!

NCmountainwoman said...

The truest words are often in country music. I just love it...the old and the new. Count me among those who enjoy the simple things.

Tricia said...

Amen Betsy!!! Now I'm on my way to listen to the song - I've never heard it before, but I'm fixin to!

Tricia said...

That IS a good song - I like the kids in the background, "Ain't Nothin' Like" hehehe

Susie said...

I'm not sure I know this song but I couldn't agree more-it's the simple things that are most important!

Neal said...

Amen to that! So many people get caught up in chasing the latest gadget and never enjoy the simple things that nature offers us. I could sit in the woods or on a mountain top all day and be content.

Jen said...

Ain't nothin' like old pictures! Love it. :)

Rosa said...

I'll have to agree with you!!

Daisy said...

Love the photo of you and your Dad. Being able to enjoy the simple things in life is a blessing indeed.

Simple is best, but it's a complicated process in life to learn that. Many don't, or sometimes forget. We all forget at times.

Diane said...

Cute photo, Betsy. We can always be reminded of all the wonderful things that are there just to enjoy.

Mary said...

Amen!

Janie said...

Betsy, you should write your own song. You have lots of additions to "ain't nothin' like." Seems like a good way to contemplate what's really important in life.
What a cute photo of you and your dad!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Thanks to all for visiting today. I have been VERY busy setting up my new computer. It's amazing --how much better the colors are and how much faster the computer is. I still have alot more to learn and more files to download.. BUT--I'm a very happy camper with this beautiful new mac tonight.

Thanks again--and let's all remember the simple things in life!!!!!

Have a great Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy
