The three most important songs in my life and why humm. Well the first song that I ever really connected to was In the Garden. I grew up in a dysfunctional family and so created family wherever I could. One of those families was an elderly couple across the street. They went to the same church I did and I use to help them out with chores around their house, in turn they welcomed me into their home. When the gentleman passed away it was very sad; I think it was the first funeral that I ever went to. I can clearly remember sitting in the pew by myself as the Pastor’s wife began to sing this song, it was his favorite, I was moved to tears. I have never forgotten it and would someday like to have this song sung at my funeral which will hopefully be a long time from now.
Second song My Girl. Why? because I use to sing it to my daughter when she was a new born baby. She had her days and nights mixed up and use to be awake all night long so I would sing to her; and even though this was difficult time in my life my beautiful, sweet daughter brought sunshine into my life everyday.
Third-Falling In Love With You. While I like the Elvis version my favorite is the UB40 version. It’s my favorite because it’s our song, Dave’s and mine, because I couldn’t help falling in love with him.
That’s it for today – till next time craft on!
