This speaks to me

I love music.
There are certain songs that just instantly transport me to another time, and literally fill me with memories. Good and bad. Sometimes a song just speaks to my heart, sometimes it's something about the melody, but most of the time it is the lyrics. I found this one, and something about the words just makes me cry every time I hear it. I thought I would post part of it because it says something about how parents feel about their children, and I found it fitting for Mothers Day somehow.

"Well my dad was sick
and my mom she cared for him
her love it nursed him back to life
and me I ran,
I couldn't even look at him,
for fear I'd have to say goodbye
and as I start to leave he grabs me by the shoulder and he tells me,

whats left to lose,
you've done enough
and if you fail well then you fail,
but not to us
cause these last three years,
I know they've been hard
but now it's time to get out of the desert and into the sun
even if it's alone"

-The Format- On Your Porch

That's on the Veronica Mars soundtrack! It makes me sad everytime I hear it - but it is a great song.

It always amazes me the power that a song can have over my Trisha Yearwood says - the song remembers when...and I'm so glad, for the good and the bad.

Happy Mother's Day to a very fabulous mom!

Don't you love Veronica? I have them on DVD - I think it might be time to break them out again!

I don't know who the group is who sings this song, but the words are deep, sweet and true. Life does go on, and it does not matter if we fail only if we do not get back up and try again. You are the best Sarah!! You have been an inspiration since we first met and continue to be so!! Hope your Mother's Day was the best!!
