How To Go From Grumpy To Bouncing Like Tigger In Under 3:44 Seconds

Yesterday morning I woke up about 3 a.m. and I was freezing cold. So I fixed a mug of warm milk, turned the heater on and went back to bed wishing I had a pair of strong warm arms wrapped around me.

When the alarm clock went off at 6 a.m., I struggled to get out of bed. I had warmed up some but was in no mood to go to work. It’s too much effort working and holding down a household but I force myself to do it anyway. It’s like that old saying “No rest for the wicked, weary, widow.” While getting ready for work I prayed for strength and energy to make it through my day.

After getting in the car, I turned on the CD and as I was backing out of the garage, Barry Manilow was singing “This One’s For You.” Well, I promptly switched to the next song as that song was not what I wanted or needed to hear.

However, the next one really got me in the groove. I looked at the sun shinning on the trees during my drive and started bouncing in my seat like Tigger and singing at the top of my lungs (it’s a good thing I do not carpool with anyone.)

The song that turned my day around

“Daybreak” by Barry Manilow

I bet you can not listen to this song without clapping along. Just please do not clap while driving.

Each daybreak is a new beginning, a new chance to move forward with life, “if you’ll only believe.”

So believe my friend, believe that you will survive and thrive while on your grief journey.  Then find a way to let your belief “shine, shine, shine all around the world.”          😀

Weekend Wisdom For Lovers: The Ultimate Love Song

I just could not resist posting a video of the ultimate love song.  It was performed at the Noble Peace Prize Concert in 2010.  Just the name brings to mind images of black ties and stuffy, rich, elite people.

“Could It Be Magic” that this song let’s the air out of stuffy, rich, elite people?

Enjoy this song about true love gone wrong.
