I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
Here’s another light-filled ¤ Gem ¤
“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”–Henry James
Our next theme will be in celebration of Valentine’s Day, my favorite holiday. It’s all about love, and music. If you have favorite songs that feature all kinds of love, like a parent’s love for their child, the love between siblings, the love of a pet, the generations-deep love of your birthplace, or the love of anyone or anything that brings you joy that is celebrated in a favorite song, please leave a comment below. I would love to hear your favorite love songs.
Just as we did with the ☼ Flower Songs ☼ theme a few years back for our dear Ivor when he was so sick, the songs for #loveandmusic will have a corresponding playlist to which I’ll add daily: “I feel the world and want to help heal the world.” Nothing heals the world like love unless it’s music. ♪
There are two songs on the playlist so far. The first was sent years ago from a friend in our Laddership Group on ServiceSpace.org to all of us. She spoke of how the group helped her remember that we belong to each other. “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz.
The second, “You’ll Be In My Heart,” is the song my youngest son and I danced to at his wedding last year. We love the movie Tarzan and all the songs in it but especially this one. So dancing with Kid 4 that night is a beautiful memory where love shines bright.
Songs are like that, aren’t they? They bring us back to those moments. I found out recently that Phil Collins wrote this ^ song for his baby daughter.
And I’ll keep adding to this list.
I hope we have a beautiful weekend. And remember…
