Look at You Now

I watched this on You Tube this afternoon and it really made my day.

A new country singer, Mark O'Shea, from Australia just moved to Nashville and filmed this heart video at the childrens hospital. Mark was born with TOF and had his repair when he was 6 months old. What's really great is that look at what he's doing with his life and how far he's come. Mark has the same congenital heart defect as Nathan. At the end of the video, there's a little boy named Nathan who years after his repair is dressed up in a baseball uniform and playing ball.

Here's the link:

Here's the lyrics:

Look At You Now

I know it was never easy, when nobody was on your side
Back home where the girls were mean and the boys were high
You'd hear about every party, but you'd have to invite yourself
Sit spending the whole night wishing you were someone else
Living on the outside like you never would fit in
You took your chance with both your hands and baby you showed them

Look at your life like a diamond, look at you shine from inside out
Maybe you took some time to find it oh but look at you now
Baby I never saw it coming, you hit me like lightning from a cloud
Wherever it was that you were hiding, you found your way out
And look at you now

Shy girl afraid of the water, now you're leaving em in your wake
So you fell down seven times but you got up eight

Though I hardly recognized you standing face to face
Your just like a butterfly that's finally come of age…


Seeing you across the street, you almost knocked me off my feet
It's been so long I can't believe it's true, It's you…

Nathan a couple of days after his heart surgery in June.

And look at you now!

I totally enjoyed the song and the video along with it. What fun to hear of the successes of those little ones, some who are grown and being very productive themselves. Nathan sure has come a long way as indicated in the pictures. Thanks for sharing.
