|One of Mom's many angels|
One of my Google searches for "popular songs for 2011 graduation" led me to this one by Julianne Hough. Now I must confess that I am not a Dancing with the Stars fan, nor do I listen to much country music. However, when I first heard this song the melody was so upbeat that I could not help but smile.
As I shared yesterday, I tend to focus on beat and melody first in music, and it is usually as a last resort that I actually listen to the words (strange for an English teacher, huh?). But over the past few days I have really heard the words that are spoken here and I must say that they mimic where I am in life right now:
I think I finally made it here where I belong ....
Life is more than the breaths you take; it's the moments that take your breath away ...
It took some time but I was never by myself, there were angels helping all along.It has been just a little over three months since Mom passed away. She collected angels.
Perhaps some of you might find this song as uplifting as I do.
