You never know what you are handing down to your children.

Every day to day care or preschool we sang songs in the car, long road trips we sang with what ever was on the radio etc. Same with sports and school. I took single classes while they were little and the youngest always wanted to do homework with me. I didn't have an opportunity to play sports growing up and my X wouldn't allow it while we were married. So as soon as we were apart, I enrolled them all in what ever they wanted to try. My son is an Eagles Scout and my youngest is one of the top soldiers in her Army National gaurd unit. The oldest is a very organized mom, don't know how that happened! But, the music tastes are wide open with all of the kids because I told them that it isn't about the style of music always, it is the art. The symphony is what convinced them of that!

My mom used to do that, too! Only we would drive around at Christmas time looking at all of the Christmas lights in our town, singing Christmas Carols at the top of our lungs with the windows down! Funny what you remember from your childhood, isn't it? We are all making memories for our children - hopefully more good than bad, lest they end up on some therapists couch in 20 years telling them how we ruined their lives.

I heard this song on my iPod yesterday and thought it quite fitting for this time of year. I hope that everyone can look back on 2008 with a good feeling and a sense of accomplishment. Wishing everyone a joyous, peaceful, safe and prosperous new year!

A Long December
by Coutning Crows

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leaving
Oh the days go by so fast

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven
I wish you would
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California
I think you should
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after 2 a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean
I guess I should
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

The first time I ever seen my Bf's pic was, of all places, on this site and I thought he was just the most handsomest man!! We started chatting online via another site (Not a dating website) and finally decided to meet ... And now we're always spending time together, texting or on the phone. I put a song on my profile on that other site and it was one I've always liked but now it expressed the way I felt. One day he told me he changed the song on his profile ... to the same exact one I put up. LoL ... So now I'm sharing the lyrics with y'all ... If you don't know it, there's lots of music sites that will have it. It's a pretty song.
===========================================================


All My Life lyrics - K-ci & JoJ0
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I will never find another lover sweeter than you,
Sweeter than you
And I will never find another lover more precious than you
More precious than you
Girl you are close to me you're like my mother,
Close to me you're like my father,
Close to me you're like my sister,
Close to me you're like my brother
You are the only one my everything and for you this song I sing

And all my life I've prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I've prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do love me too

I said you're all that I'm thinking of.....baby

Said, I promise to never fall in love with a stranger,
You're all I'm thinking of, I praise the Lord above,
For sending me your love, I cherish every hug,
I really love you

And all my life, baby, baby, I've prayed for someone like you,
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you, baby
All my life I've prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do, love me

You're all that I ever known, when you smile, on my face, all I see is a glow.
You turned my life around, you picked me up when I was down,
You're all that I ever known, when you smile on your face all I see is a glow,
You picked me up when I was down
You're all that I ever known, when you smile on your face all I see is a glow,
You picked me up when I was down and I hope that you feel the same way too,
Yes I pray that you do love me too

All my life, I've prayed for someone like you,
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I've prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too
All my life I've prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I've prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too

Trisha Yearwood also does a version ^^ :O)

Hmmm...I have a lot of songs with memories...but I guess if I had to send out a dedication one, it would be "Far Away" to someone special who knows who he is. :O)

"Far Away"

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]

So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
'Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go

I've got another one (is anyone really surprised? LOL!) Sending this song out to "TTB" wherever he may be...

You've Got A Friend
Lyrics by Carole King

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_L4epGowZU

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, Ill be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.

One of my all time fave friendship songs....or just about loyalty in general....

Wind Beneath My Wings
Bette Midler

It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that's your way
You always walked a step behind
So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
If I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings
It might have appeared to go unnoticed
but I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth
Of course I know it
I would be nothing with out you

Fly, fly, fly away
You let me fly so high
Oh, fly, fly
So high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you
The wind beneath my wings

OMG, I love this song, too. When my mom was in the hospital (in the ICU for FOUR MONTHS at death's DOOR!) I used to put my earphones in her ears and play this song to her - hoping to reach through to her unconscious state and let her know that I was there and loved her so much (and was scared to death we would never talk again). When I hear this song now, I always think of those long days and nights, keeping vigile by her bedside, hoping she would open her eyes and talk to me. (getting "misty" just remembering that horribly difficult time in my life).

She eventually made it through her ORDEAL but it was a MIRACLE and I do not use that term LIGHTLY - a MIRACLE that she recovered. Thanks for posting this..*hugs*

You made me cry, dambit! You just told me all about the scare with your momma, so I know just how deep it was for you....and imagining it...**sigh**....tears up.

I am an emotional mess right now! The song has a lot of meaning for me for several reasons. :O)

One of them was what we did for all the mommy's for Mother's Day, one year in Girl Scouts with my awesome Brownie troop! We planted plants for them and hosted a beautiful outdoor event where we also sang the mom's the song. Awesome!

And honestly...well, every single one of my children has been "the wind beneath my wings." Completely lift me and give me a purpose to be here. :)

No doubt about it - MOMS are special people. I often tell my son that he may not THINK I'm on his side, at times, but that I am ALWAYS looking after his best interest and am the best friend he has in this world. There is no greater champion than your MOM!

A Big shout out to Moms everywhere!

No matter what moms can be incredible people! I always say even when you turn moms up-side-down... you still have WOW! (daddys agree with that!)
