Hey Pretty Girl

This song came out during our pregnancy with Mary Anna, and Dan came home one day from school and played it for me with tears rolling down his face. We thought it was such a sweet song about a walk through dating, marriage, and a baby. The ending did not hit us until the day that we got into the car from the hospital. Dan cranked our car as we were driving away from UAB without our baby girl, and we didn’t know what to do or say or think. Instantly, the radio starting playing, and this song was on. It was at the end where it said:
 Hey pretty girl, you did so good 
Our baby’s got your eyes
And a fighter’s heart like I knew she would
Hey pretty girl, you did so good
Hey pretty girl, when I see the light
And it’s my time to go
I’m gonna thank the Lord for a real good life
A pretty little girl and a beautiful wife
Insert lots of tears.
We don’t believe in coincidence.
