Tonight, JoDene and I went to the Sugarland concert.
During the concert, our local radio station had handed out posters to concert goers with instructions to hold them up during their song, "Little Miss". I didn't know anything about the Little Miss Project at the time, but the band was very impressed that so many people were part of this big surprise for them.
It was an amazing concert and we had a lot of fun, singing at the top of our lungs, dancing and screaming like we were in our twenties all over again. And although I feel like I may be too old for concerts anymore, I am sure that we will do it again in the future.
I googled the Little Miss Project when I got home. It's a site for women (and girls) to talk about how they are inspired by the lyrics and how this song has helped them to overcome obstacles in their daily lives.
The lyrics touch on how woman are expected to push through all of the obstacles, all of the things that are like roadblock in our day to day lives. Women are special because rather than getting mired down in the awful things that have happened to them, they push ahead, smile planted firmly on their face and become stronger rather than allowing events to victimize them.
And this song (besides being undeniably catchy) encourages us to keep up the good fight.
We should all be fighters.
