I love Pink! Maybe it’s because we share a birthday or maybe I like her edginess. She is cool, and her voice stands out. She doesn’t follow the crowd, she seems to be comfortable in her own skin and I always admire a person who is confident with whom they are.
I chose her song “Who Knew,” this week. Sometimes Life and the relationships in our life are taken for granted. We assume that tomorrow will bring more of the same and won’t change all that much. But once in a while, a hiccup occurs and everything we knew to be is no longer the way it was. And we look back and think I would have never thought my life would end up the way it has.

Happy Friday!

Who Knew lyrics

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you’d be around
Uh huh
That’s right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That’s right

If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
Cause they’re all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I’d give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
‘fore they’re long gone
I guess I just didn’t know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I’ll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won’t forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
Cause they’re all wrong and
That last kiss
I’ll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling
Who knew
Who knew

 

I am a sucker for love. I believe with love you can accomplish anything.

Love is the only thing that you can never have too much of. Think of all the great things that come from Love…

Peace,Children,Marriage,Friendship,Religion,Faith,Truth

Let love rule your life and you will find it is the best thing to live for!

Today Song is Let Love Rule by Lenny Kravitz

 

Lyrics

Let Love Rule

Love is gentle as a rose
And love can conquer any war
It’s time to take a stand
Brothers and sisters join hands

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

Love transcends all space and time
And love can make a little child smile
Can’t you see this won’t go wrong
But we got to be strong
We can’t do it alone

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

 

 

Today is Halloween and the spirits are out in full swing.

What better song to play today than Thriller by Michael Jackson, the video is still great to watch on Halloween.

 

Stay Safe tonight.

 

Me and My Indians will be trick or treating.

What song are you listening to this Halloween?

I love a great love song. Sometimes in life, you meet that great love that changes your life. Sometimes even the greatest of loves cannot be together. History is filled with characters that deeply loved each other but couldn’t be together. History is also filled with great loves that were able to stay together for a lifetime.
It’s hard to describe LOVE but once you experience it you never forget it!

This week’s Friday Song is Love Remains the Same by Gavin Rossdale. I love his voice, he’s easy on the eyes and he appears to be a great hubby and daddy!

My favorite lyric in the song is (Make me want to run until I find you).

Happy Friday!

What are you listening to this week?

Lyrics
A thousand times I’ve seen you standing
Gravity like a lunar landing
You make me want to run till I find you
I shut the world away from here
I drift to you, you’re all I hear
As everything we know fades to black

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You’re pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

I find a place where we escape
Take you with me for the space
The city buzz sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I have to find just where you are
The faces seem to blur
They’re all the same

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You’re pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

So much more to say
So much to be done
Don’t you trick me out
We shall overcome
It’s all left still to play

We – should have the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we’re over here

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time too long defending
You and I are done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You’re pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change

I, oh I,
I wish this could last forever
I, oh I,
As if we could last forever

Love remains the same
Love remains the same

We are all on a path to a glorious destination. As individuals, we have a responsibility to help our brothers and sisters of the world. We must delve inside ourselves to discover our purpose.
Life is not about acquiring riches or surpassing our neighbors. It is about looking at each other and finding something that we have in common. It’s about helping someone up when they fall, it’s about giving a thumb’s up when no one else is willing to build confidence. It’s about believing without seeing. It’s about understanding and merging together as one. It’s about accepting without judgment.
It’s about believing in a higher power regardless of what you call that higher power.

When you start worrying about the next life, you begin living this life differently.
Life is not a competition; every man is replaceable but only certain ones leave marks.
Take time today to leave a mark on someone’s heart and you may help them rise higher than they ever knew they could. In return, they may do the same for another.

Being born is like winning the lottery, what we do with our winnings makes a difference.

Happy Friday!

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and its time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all

We cant go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to brend
So we all must lend a helping hand

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe theres no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

For some, confidence is hard to achieve. You let other people’s perceptions of you interfere with who you really are. Today is the day to look within and embrace your inner self. You may be different from others and that is okay. Take that difference and fly with it. You don’t have to be like anyone else to fit in. If someone makes you feel out of place because you are different, chances are they are intimidated by the confidence they see but you don’t. Find your light turn it on and never apologize for being the person you were born to be, by doing this you will find confidence. Don’t Back Down!

You have a dream but you are afraid that others won’t accept or believe in it. The only person that needs to believe in your dream is yourself. When one door closes, search for another one that opens. Don’t Back Down!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Tom Petty/I WON’T BACK DOWN LYRICS

Well I wont back down, no I wont back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I wont back down

Gonna stand my ground, wont be turned around
And Ill keep this world from draggin me down
Gonna stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby, there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down.

Well I know whats right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin me around
But Ill stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down
No, I wont back down

We are spending way too much money a week on gas.  My checking account is quickly depleting because of trips to the gas station. Many days, I look down at the gas gauge and realize -“I’m running on empty.”

Life as a mother of four is crazy and filled with to do lists. I am a headless chicken trying to get everything done by day’s end. I try to squeeze a few minutes here and there for things I like to do. By nightfall, I sit back and say to myself, “I’m running on empty.”

The economy is in distress and the future is unclear, we are- running on empty.

 

Can you guess what song I chose for this week?

Running on Empty by Jackson Browne.

I loved this song the moment I heard it and I still turn it up every time it comes on.

What songs have you singing along?

Feel free to suggest songs for future Friday’s.

Happy Friday!

 

 

RUNNING ON EMPTY
(by Jackson Browne)

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-o-one
I don’t know where I’m running now, I’m just running on

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own
I don’t know when that road turned onto the road I’m on

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Everyone I know, everywhere I go
People need some reason to believe
I don’t know about anyone but me
If it takes all night, that’ll be all right
If I can get you to smile before I leave

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Honey you really tempt me
You know the way you look so kind
I’d love to stick around but I’m running behind
You know I don’t even know what I’m hoping to find
Running into the sun but I’m running behind

 

 

We are all of different race, religion, body shape, gender and all possess different personalities. But the one thing we all have in common is LOVE. Love is universal and it has nothing to do with color, social class or body size.  If we all embraced love a little more the world would be a much better place.

This week I chose Bob Marley’s One Love for the Friday song.

Tell someone today that you love them and you just might make their day.

 

Happy Friday!

 

 

One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One Love)
Hear the children crying (One Heart)
Sayin’ give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin’ let’s get together and feel all right
Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I’d really like to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love)
So shall it be in the end (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
One more thing
Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love)
So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song)
Have pity on those whose chances grove thinner
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation
Sayin’ One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
I’m pleading to mankind (One Love)
Oh Lord (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right

 

 

Last Friday was sunny, warm and inviting. This Friday is gloomy and cool. Immediately I could feel the blues setting in. Last week I felt like I could conquer the world but today I felt like I wanted to hide from the world. I searched for depressing songs to suit my mood. I was prepared to sulk when I came across a song that lifted my mood. This Little Light of Mine is exactly what I needed. Bruce Springsteen’s version is upbeat and knocked the blues out of me. When the world outside is gloomy and dark, find your light and let it shine.

Happy Friday!

 We all have something we need to rise above. Whether it’s a temptation or a loss, in order to gain insight and wisdom unfortunate occurences must happen. How we deal with these situations is what makes us stronger or weaker. Find the lesson in every situation and you will gain wisdom.

 

 

 

 

This week’s Friday’s song is Rise Above This by Seether

Take whatever situation that brings you down and rise above it!

Happy Friday!

What are you listening to?

 

Take the light, undarken everything around me
Call the clouds and listen closely I’m lost without you
Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this

Hate the mind, regrets are better left unspoken
For all we know, this void will grow
And everything’s in vain, distressing you though it leaves me open
Feels so right, but I’ll end this all before it gets me

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this
Call your name every day when I seem so helpless
I’ve fallen down, and I’ll rise above this, rise above this doubt

I’ll mend myself before it gets me
(I’ll mend myself before it gets me)
I’ll mend myself before it gets me
(I’ll mend myself before it gets me)

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this
Forty eight ways to say that I’m feelin’ helpless
I’m Falling down, falling down, but I’ll rise above this, rise above this,
Rise above this, rise above this doubtqcN3EGg#
