Garth Brooks lyrics
I saw this meme -- and LOVED it of course. First of all, they are just great words. But what brought a big grin to my face was a memory.
A memory of a boy in my summer singles ward. He was someone I met and admired and did my best to drop hints to :). When it was his turn to speak in church he used some Garth Brooks lyrics in his talk. Nowadays if someone did that I think my cheesy alarm would go off - but I had a big enough crush that I found it touching. He had a gift for speaking in a way that got to people's hearts and I still enjoy remembering that feeling and the admiration of watching him, 17 years after our love story began.
