Today’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt is – Alone/Confined/Depressed/Isolated/Restless/Solo. This prompt is brought to us today by the one and only Mr. Jim and his Blog, “A Unique Title for me” …Restless & Hot.
First song I came to was, “Stronger” (Alone) sung by Kelly Clarkson. Seems like the perfect song for today !!!!
What doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger…Yes it does !!!!
Good Morning Song Lyric Sunday fan’s…hoping everyone is staying safe out there and not dealing w/too much anxiety over our nation’s/world Pandemic. Remember this too shall pass and
“All shall be well, and All shall be well, and All manner of things shall be well.” Julian of Norwich…England 1342/1416 (from my Commonplace Book)
Today’s prompt is a home run … The prompt is Home Town or City, given to us by Mr. Jim.
I went right for the artist Mr. Jim Peterik lead singer w/The Ides of March who is also a hometown boy from Berwyn right outside the city of Chicago, my hometown…Quick story, me and the husband went to many of their concerts as they would do any hometown venues and attractions i.e. summer parks and local colleges. It was at Christmastime one year and they were playing for a local live radio show WLS and we were going. I’m thinking it was at The Horseshoe Casino. We came in during their performance and they were singing, “The Search is Over.” As we were walking to our seats he started walking towards the us, came down the stairs and right there in front of the whole audience he kissed me, OMG !!! Yes he did and it was the thrill of a lifetime for me <3….Right up there with when Harry Chapin kissed me and the husband went up on the stage and sang, “Taxi” with him, but I will save that for another day !!!
The song that I’m going with today is LA Goodbye, which is not my hometown. Chicago is but it does have the Chicago in the lyrics…
While looking for my song I came across this new youtube video that he must of just done for the city during these trying times…I dedicate this youtube video to all of the warrior’s and hero’s on the front lines working to keep us safe.
I am so proud to be the mom to those warrior’s !!! First I have my daughter who just really rocks it !!! She’s an Registered Nurse !!! The front lines…
Then there’s the rest of our family that live out in Richmond, VA…Connor and his beautiful new wife Missy, were out delivering cookies (following all of the safety guidelines) to people who needed some moral support. My son Matthew and his friend the amazing DRandall Blythe, Lead Singer/Lamb of God were out sourcing PPE’s making sure the people on the front lines had what they needed.
They also were sending the mask’s to their sister the nurse, so she would be protected while being out there taking care of all afflicted with this invisible enemy. He said it’s my way of helping out to these brave people…
Lizzie also keeps checking on us and she brought us some of her stash. Connor also gave her the 3 mask’s that he had left over from when he was working on his landscaping. That’s what families do, they take care of each other ❤ .
I must end with this, I love my family ❤ I am extremely proud of them all. We are very proud of the amazing, considerate and loving people they have become. They are my gift to the world. I love you all (( ❤ )) . Love and hugs and please be safe you mom & dad need you ❤ . Here’s a couple of more pics of my favorite people !!!
Good afternoon, early evening my AtoZer’s Blogging Challenge. I have decided to jump back in b/c I really missed blogging. My world as I’m sure a lot of everyone else’s world looks and feel a lot different from what it use to be like. I have been very distracted, not being able to get into my planning world or blogging or anything really. The only thing that I have been doing which has been a positive, is reading a book that our new Missy (daughter-in-law) got me for Christmas. It’s a pretty good read and easy.
The Letter for today’s challenge is “P” which I will use for, “P”lan…I thought that was a (p)erfect letter for today. I’m sure if you have followed my blog for any amount of time you know that I’m a Planner Girl. I love, love, love to P L A N !!!! I love, love, love my planner Mz. Serena…
Planning gives me a sense of control over my life. There’s only one thing wrong with that and I’m sure many will agree, that is a total illusion. No one has total control over anything especially your life. We all get to make choices but a plan is just that a plan. Something to achieve at a certain time. Appointments, schedules, financial plans, vacation plans, yadayadayadayada.
Sometimes having a plan reminds me of, “Murphy’s Law.” You know anything that can go wrong will, etc…I have come to the conclusion that for me planning just makes me happy. I like to see my life on paper and realize I really do have a wonderful life. It’s pretty, it’s happy, and I love it. I also have come to the realization the anything I write down, usually gets done. “Write it Down, Make it Happen ❤ “
I’ll share some more pictures with you of my planning area and supplies, and then I have to go b/c I want to do some planning for tomorrow. Blessings Blogger’s, I hope this event which is taking place right now over our world has skipped by your home. Prayer’s for all of my blogger friends, Love ya 😉 …
How’s everyone doing ?? I have been hanging in there. It’s Saturday although I think the days of the week have just disappeared. It feels more like today, and then there’s tomorrow and yesterday of course. I’m sure it’s the weekend and last week was the same…yadayadayada.
I’ve decided to start my gratitude journal again. Being able to say, “Thank You” and being grateful will get you through just about anything. With that being said I am going to start today out happy and being thankful for my daughter.
Yesterday she came over and took me to on a “Target” fun run. We use to go there all the time together and a blow a couple of hundred bucks. Seems like forever ago, but when we were there together it was just like old times. We were so happy being together. I got the girls some troll sweatshirts and pokeman cards just because and she was telling me, “No” they have enough stuff. That’s the fun of being the grandmama and I told her move on, get over it. I get to do that now 😉 .
She is also a nurse and she calls me all the time to make sure me and her dad have everything we need. She tells me to stay out of the stores and if I need anything she’ll get it for me. It’s really nice having her be so worried about us and checking in on us as if she doesn’t already have enough on her plate. We feel so loved ❤ .
Her younger brother Matthew, the dancer out in VA found a PPE supplier and bought her gloves and masks and sent them to her. Such a great brother and so worried about his big sister. Then she got those from him and she brought some over to me and her dad…
That’s what family is about. Forgetting about past wrongs and making sure everyone is safe and loved. Today I feel so good about my kids. Me and Dad feel good and we put some amazing people out into the world which is a good thing because it is this generation that is going to have to do much of the re-building. I’m pretty confident they will do it with love and the help of God ❤ I love you Lizzie, Matthew, Connie & Missy ❤ Can’t forget about the grandbabies, Gabriella, Olivia and Mariah ❤ . Blessings ❤
Here are some more pics of my amazing family !!!!
We are all hanging in there at these historic times…I guess that’s a better way of putting it. I’m telling all the kids, “Just think of the stories you will get to tell when you are old like me 😉 !!! ” I think it’s pretty cool, it’s just getting a bit old but like my little old Italian grandmama use to say, “This too shall pass.” I’m glad to be back.
I’ll be jumping back in on the AtoZ challenge too ❤ . Blessings Blogger’s ❤
