Garth, I think you're on to something.

Unanswered Prayers, by Garth Brooks

Just the other night a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
And I couldnt help but think of the way things used to be.

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again.

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.

She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me
In her eyes too it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the lord knows what hes doin' after all.

And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
And then and there I thanked the good lord
For the gifts in my life.

Some of gods greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
Some of gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

That song just came on my radio here in the office at work. It made me think of all the times I'd wish and pray for Erik to tell me he loves me....for him to tell me that I'm the only one he wants for the rest of his life....

...and you know what? I think Garth knows what he's talking about.
