It’s Monday again which means I am going to join the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” hop. Last week I really enjoyed it. Although, I had no clue that there was a theme. This week I do. Always have run by my own horse. I’ve been reading XmasDolly’s site for a while now. Congrats to her for moving to her own site!! That’s a big move, Dolly. Congrats! By the way, check her out I think you will love her as much as I do.
This week’s theme was chosen by The Cave Man, who suggested that we find music that tells a story of your life. This can be a single all-encompassing piece of music, or you can cut together several pieces, each that are about part of who you are and/or how you discovered music.
So this is really going to be an interesting post for me since my life is not your typical straight path. And here we go… I hope you enjoy the ride.
I guess we need to start when I was born or maybe before. My parents went to see the movie, Tammy and the Bachelor
I grew up just like everybody else. I lived in Ohio most of my life with a short stint in California where I was a blonde. Why my mom and dad had to bring me back to the cold side of the U.S. I have no clue. When I was a teenager, I met and fell in love with my first husband, Michael. That was a really rocky time. Michael was a wonderful guy but he was a little wild. I was a crazy kid who just had her first taste of freedom from a tyrannical father. For the next six years, I watched as my husband suffered through diabetes. There was love abound though. I worked two jobs and basically lived at the hospital with him during the off time. After he passed away, I was a lady down on love like Alabama sings.
I was only 23 years old. I didn’t know what life was about but here I had learned the things someone very old knew way too young. I learned to appreciate what you have because you never know when it will be gone. I learned that nothing is forever. It can be taken away from you in a moment’s notice. I learned to love with no barriers. But I, also, learned to hide that part after Michael passed away. I went a bit crazy after he died. I became that single lady that just didn’t have anything to live for. Which made me a bit of a danger. I knew that I would never have kids and saw no reason to get married.
Then I met my husband, Ken. I thought of him as a toy boy to play with. My husband is ten years younger than me. Boy, he had different ideas than me.
He wanted to get married and I saw no reason. I can’t have kids. Whats the point I thought. But I said yes because by then I was in love with him. Even though I always knew that I would still love my first husband as well. Ken was ok with that. The first one that ever got that Michael would always be part of me.
As it turns out, we now have my two wonderful kids, Faith and Jason and life couldn’t be better. Well, obviously, I’d rather than my son didn’t have special needs but it is what it is. I have my dream. I have my two kids, husband, dog and cat as well as our little house. We have it all. Oh we don’t have money big time or anything like that. What we have is love. We have those things that are priceless. So now my song is:
