This is a photo of my parents, Rev. Roy and Shirley. They have both been gone a long time. When I married my second husband in 1997, I dedicated the following song to them. I had gone through a rough divorce and had started over again in every area of my life. If I had not had their love and support, I do not believe I would have made it. (This picture sits on the shelf above my computer where I sit every day.
The song is by Celene Dion and was the theme song for a movie starring Michelle Pfeffer and Robert Redford. It's called "Because You Loved Me." When I was on my way to my dad after hearing that my mom had died, this song came on the radio. Fortunately I was not driving because I lost it. I hope you enjoy the song. For more corner views go on over to Francesca's.
A nice and sweet choice.ReplyDelete

Music is a gift from God I believe given to us to help us get through the rough times in our life.ReplyDelete

Ah--what a neat tribute to your parents. I know that they know how happy you are now--and how well you are doing... I have always been sad that my parents didn't get to meet George.. BUT--I think they somehow KNOW that their daughter is VERY happy.ReplyDelete
Love that song.. It has always been a favorite. Thanks for sharing.
So beautiful for you to dedicate this song for your parents. Surely they can hear the love coming from your heart when you play it and share it. I couldn`t view the link you shared but looked up the song and watched this version, I love the way she is dressed in white and the dancers movements are sensitive yet elegant with spirit filled staging.ReplyDelete
what a song can do, and it can... lovely dedication of you to your parents. n♥ReplyDelete
I can't get videos on my system since borrowing a laptop. However, I'm sure the song means a lot to you for a very special reason. A beautiful photo of your parents that you have on the shelf by your computer. A lovely tribute to those you hold dear in your heart.ReplyDelete
Your mother has such a sweet smile. I'm so glad you had them with you for as long as you did. And thank you again, always, for your little notes. (Kitty is not home, yet - but hopefully next week.)ReplyDelete
Wishing you and all you love, a happy Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
