That is good.  There is a country song about this.  It is really good. I can't remember the name of the song or who sang it.

EDIT:  Found the song!  Its called The Chain of Love by Clay Walker

I have seen the email before, but the song is awesome...I don't know that I have seen the video...not much of a video watcher myself. It usually ruins the song for me.

Yep!!! I was just about to say that is a LOT like the song "Chain of Love" by Clay Walker, who is by the way, my most absolute FAVORITE country singer of all time. I have seen him in concert nine times and met him four times. And if you ever want to see a really great show, I would highly suggest going to see him live. He is a very wonderful family person too. He was diagnosed with MS in 1996 but now in remission I think, but still dances and moves on stage like you wouldn't believe. And very sexy too. Those eyes, that smile, that tush...Whooo!!! Okay, sorry got a little carried away there. Oh, by the way, that's his wife in "The Chain of Love" video too.
