Okay, you know how during a month there is always that one busy day? That day when EVERYTHING needs to be done by or gets planned on? No? It’s just me? Oh. Well anyway, this past Saturday was my dog-pile day for January. There was so much going on, the busyness trickled into my Monday. This was just a long excuse as to why I don’t have a real blog tonight. So, we’re just doing a brief “What’s on my Youtube,” fill in.
I found this because of Facebook. A fb friend posted it as her status. I’m not a big Bruno fan – he indulges in too much hyperbole for me. But I saw this at the right moment type of thing. It was a Sunday and the first good day I had since my mom died over a month ago. Almost as if it was a message just for me telling me it was okay to be happy again.
Speaking of my mom, this song has been stuck in my head. The first minute doesn’t really fit unless you want to picture me as Diddy and my mom as Notorious. Nah, that’s too weird. The rest of the song is surprisingly poignant. Faith Evans’ melody has been playing on a loop in my head for a couple of days.
This is the song my sister sung at my mom’s funeral. Unfortunately, we didn’t think of hooking up a microphone so it turned out to be more of a piano recital. However, I heard her practice it days before her performance. It was absolutely beautiful. I wish I had a copy of her singing, but I don’t. This song has been a favorite of mine for years. “He lives to hear my soul’s complaint…He lives to wipe away my tears.”
And to end on a lighter note. Normally, the most that a commercial can get out of me is a little chuckle. But this one makes me laugh out loud. It is the USPS after holiday promo for “If it fits, it ships.” I first saw this three years ago – and was the only person inside my circle to see it. I had to explain it to anyone who would listen and really, who wants listen to someone talk about a commercial?
What? Too random?
