I had found this, word for word as Phaedrus has already posted (so I won't repeat it), and posted it in reply to a request on another quotation website. I found it in a post on a discussion forum, and neither of the links I provided work now.
The person that posted it was exuberant about it and the book that he found it in:
"I Hope You Dance" written by Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers, foreword written by Lee Ann Womack

They also wrote Womack's smash hit song "I Hope You Dance."
It is attributed to Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers at this Google cached webpage
