Music Mantra Monday - Anyway the Wind Blows
Hey everyone. I know it's been awhile since we've checked in here. We've had just an enormous amount of things to deal with around here...some good...some not so good. But we're back.
Today's song choice is very close to my heart and very personal. No, it's not the happiest of songs but one I truly felt compelled to share this week.
I had the absolute pleasure of taking three of my kids to see Queen when they came to Edmonton this past week. It's not quite the same without Freddie Mercury (and how COULD it be?), but Adam Lambert did a fantastic job.
Long-time followers of our blog know that I have always used music in this house as a way to calm, to bring back happiness, to do my kids' therapy and just to renew the soul. We have many favorites here but we love our Beatles, Queen, 'angry music' from mommy's youth and many others. Anything goes, really.
Queen was a band that my beautiful boy has always loved. I had folks at the concert come up to me and say, "I think it's so awesome that your children, as young as they are, appreciate and love this music. Goodonya!" I agree.
My son got to go down to the first row level to take pictures, not that he got many staring in awe at the band. HA!
Freddie was an amazingly talented human being and I am honored to give him credit today. This song in particular has very special meaning to me at this point in time so I hope you all enjoy listening to it.
Be strong, be grateful, be happy, be positive and don't take anything for granted because you never know what will happen tomorrow.
Any way the wind blows....
Happy Monday to you all.
