That said I am very grateful to Paula from Battling on who has made history in Kate's world because she is the first person to tag me. So let's hear it for Paula - yay!! This is actually such a joyful topic and very appropriate for Fridays and the weekends especially Sunday night just before people are going back to work.
What's the meme about:
#1 Share a song that makes me happy and that gives an injection of happiness when needed.
#2 Post an image that makes me smile, it can be anything - an image from tinternet or a silly photo that makes me laugh as long as it's not too rude.
So for the third time of trying here are my thoughts.
In many respects the song was easy and that is because I received it through one of those lists we are all part of and it really saved me in my hour of need. As many of you know last month, Andy (my husband) sustained a head injury and initially the prognosis did not look good because he had fractured his skull, suffered from internal bleeding and swelling on the brain. He could not move his head without feeling sick and was kept in for a week. When he came home he was signed off for a further three weeks and made a slow recovery. However it was great to have him at home because the girls were slightly freaked out by visiting him in hospital. Below is a side view of his head after it was glued back together and washed:
So the song that I was sent was I believe I can fly and no I am not talking about the Orville version. It shifted my perspective dramatically. I went from thoughts about cancelling Christmas to ideas on how I could use the experience in a magazine article to inspire people. The article was published in Nubia magazine earlier this month.
I had no idea what image I would choose as I am much more audio than visual. Again the universe stepped in, as I finally got round to downloading a whole load of photos and as soon as I saw this one I knew it was the one. It is a photo of my youngest a family wedding earlier this month. She's in full swing on the dance floor. What I love about the photo is that it captures her essence so well and also is an image of unadulterated joy. Whose spirits would not soar when they looked at this photo?
Enjoy and finally I am going to tag a few peeps who make me laugh or provide thought provoking stuff on a regular basis so that they can join in the fun:
