Hey there! Long time no chat. Remember me?
Today is a Music Monday kind of day.
Well really every day is a music kind of day to me, but I have a special song to share with you today.
Written about the loss of a loved family music man, it is speaking to me today. I think ol’ Geege would approve and be happy with our celebration of his life last week.
A few others for you in honor of our family music man. Because who doesn’t like to get a little teary on a Monday?!
I know I do.
Just a glutton for punishment I am.
It was at about this time, when this song was ‘sung’ by all of us, in the memorial service that I lost it. I say ‘sung’ because I could not do it. I was not prepared to sing this at the beginning. I was hanging my hat on it being at the end. It was about downhill from there for me.
Then there was a medley of these greats.
And then this one at the close. I mean lawd. Bowl me over twice.
For the full effect, here is the actual medley. This is my Aunt’s Sister. If only I could sing Even if I could, I would not be able to keep it together.
I mean, does that get you like me?
Oh boy was I tired after all that. And then getting sick again.
It is crazy how you listen to all of these songs a million times and then bam, they all have a new memory and meaning.
Music is so great that way. How it attaches itself to you and intertwines with certain memories and feelings. Like the stitches on the fabric of your clothes or the fibers of your being. How it brings us all together and takes down the barriers. Makes you feel and floods you with emotion.
Know what I mean? No? Oh well.
Walk in love, dear readers.
