The song remembers
Yesterday, I had a music station playing on our cable TV. I was putting groceries away, singing along much to the cats’ dismay. Then it happened.
A song that was huge for the artist my now-husband was working for when we met came on… and it stopped me in my tracks. It was like being hit by a fright train of memories. In a very good way!!
Memories of shows. Memories of old conversations. Memories of dinners and laughter. I remember having a bad day, and I was riding in a vehicle with my best friend. She threw the artist’s CD on knowing it would cheer me up. Memories of meeting people that I consider dear friends today…
I tweeted about it and the following conversation ensued:
Oh I’m not saying those days were all roses. LOL! There were definitely plenty of bumps along the way for ALL of us. But somehow as time as passed, the bumps have faded and the good memories still shine.
It knocked me off my feet, but I am glad that song reminded me for awhile of the past. Reminded me to be thankful for the twists and turns of life that put me right where I am today with the people… or to steal a the term from a friend… the angels around me today.
