My favorite song by Martina McBride is "Happy Girl." That song just picks me up when I'm feeling a little down...especially the line that goes, "the world won't change just 'cause I complain, let the axis twirl, I'm a happy girl." That usually gets my head back up and in the game. And it also helps me to realize that my life really isn't all that bad, and that I'm the only one who can change whatever is wrong and make myself a happy girl :)<P>Cathy ;) N
