Even Though We Ain’t Got Money

I admit from time to time I find myself listening to the light station. 92.5…”Turn the light on” as they say in Sioux Falls. It’s extremely dorky and kind of lame to say the least. I also realized that they tend to play the same loop of soft rock every. single. day. “Lean On Me” at 2:00 pm. “Pina Colada” at 2:30. Ugh… You get the idea. While flipping through the radio stations today a song came on that made me get a little sentimental: “Danny’s Song” by Loggins & Messina. I guess the song was named for the singer’s brother and family when they had their first son. Anyway, it’s super old and a little cheesy but I couldn’t help but feel like this was the perfect way to describe what Nathan and I are going through. Like a lot of people our age we’re feeling bummed by the economy/job market and absolutely buried by our student loan debt. But regardless of the fact that we’re not rolling in the money we are so, so happy. Almost every night we find ourselves being silly and just laughing until our stomachs ache (the best kind of laughter!). I am a very lucky woman and regardless of our money situation I cannot lose sight of the fact that I married a wonderful man and that our love will always suffice. Everything will be okay.

“Even though we ain’t got money,

I’m so in love with you, honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning, when I rise,
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.”
