Music has always been something that is near to my heart! My first memory of it was when I was super little my papa would play all these songs and I would listen to him and think One day he is going to be famous!!! lol Now he would tell you that was never in the cards for him and that he's just a average guy humming along, but to me he is famous!! This could be because, other then my husband there is no other man I love more in this whole world! I loved singing along with my papa and learning all the songs he loved, I'm pretty sure we were even listening to some of these old classics on my papas old 8 track lol. Now I was born in 1980 to clarify things ;0) Anyway, I was thinking how when I hear a song it takes you right back to a certain moment, maybe one you may not have remembered otherwise and that is just a special gift! One only you and that song and maybe another person share. I still love singing some of the oldies my papa loves...Chantilly Lace, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Blueberry Hill, Rockin Robin, Twist and shout, Runaround Sue....Omg So many I could never name them all. It used to be so fun when I would sing along with these songs and people would be shocked I knew all the words, at like 5 years old! :0) I love the feeling you get when you hear a certain song, sometimes its inspiration, sometimes peace, happiness, sadness any emotion can really be brought to the surface! I just got a text message from one of my very best friends in the whole world yesterday, and it had the song Count on me by Bruno Mars playing, That's it just the song, no message but really it was such a special message! I looked up the words and was so touched.
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I'll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see
I'll be the light to guide you
You can count on me like one, two, three
I'll be there and I know when I need it
I can count on you like four, three, two
And you'll be there 'cause that's what friends
Are supposed to do
Me and My papa :0)
I thought about over the years how many songs have touched my heart and what a big part music plays in my daily life! I love pretending I'm the best singer, dancer and overall top performer, and I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by friends and family and my wonderful Husband who make me feel this way everyday! I can't wait to show our little guy that even something that's as simple as a song, something we might normally take for granted you can find appreciation in! I can't wait to watch my papa share all the songs he loves with our son. Just thinking about moments like that make me smile and almost bring tears to my eyes.
