I decided to post this week’s Music Monday song a day early, as I know that tomorrow will be another crazy busy work day and I don’t know if I will have the time or energy to post anything when I get home. Plus, this song really touched my heart today.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever been more of a mess than I am right now. The fear and uncertainty that my husband and I are facing in our lives is overwhelming. The endless physical, psychological, and emotional pain is suffocating and the weight of it all is almost too much to bear. I’m pushing back with all of my strength just to keep my head above water but it seems like an infinite battle. How I’ve managed not to drown already is beyond me.
However, no matter what life throws our way, I know that love, our love and our family’s love, is the light that will guide us home, as it always has, and there is no doubt that we have fixed each other, over and over again and we always will. ❤
This weekend, at my Dad’s birthday dinner, my parents told me that they used to play this song for, and sing it to, me when I was a little baby.
💞 It makes my heart smile 💞
I recently read that Rob Thomas wrote this beautiful song for his wife about her struggle with chronic illness (an autoimmune disease).
My musically talented husband introduced me to this beautiful song over the weekend. Unfortunately a good quality video was never produced for it but the audio is what really counts. 🎶 Enjoy! 🎸
In memory of Levon Helm

I haven’t heard this song in a while. When it first came out, I listened to it on repeat, A LOT.
I can be very obsessive with music, which is likely obvious through my love for and frequent posting of songs and videos by Blue October. Even though they will always be my all-time favorite band, I do like other artists and have a passion for all music.
Heck, I even married a musician. He hasn’t played much since we got together, almost 12 years ago, but he’s starting to rekindle that fire in himself as well. I would love to see him start playing on a regular basis again. I think it would be therapeutic and might even help his chronic pain (if the weight of his guitar doesn’t cause problems).
One of the things I like about this weekly feature is that it forces me to dig deep into my memory (and iPod) to look for songs to post. Along the way I am rediscovering a lot of old music that I love but lost touch with along the way.
❤ Wishing everyone a pain free day ❤
This song has no relevance to my life right now but I heard it today and thought it was pretty so I wanted to share it. 🙂
