Simple Sundays

 

I have not disappeared off the face of the Earth!  I could spend this entire post discussing health issues and everything else we have been facing since moving to Louisiana but what fun would that be?  A new friend recently told me that I have no idea the positive impact I have had on her life.  She said that my perseverance and positive attitude are like a light shining in the darkness. Her words touched my soul and I began to think of how very lucky I am.

So I want to share one of my most favorite songs with you today.  Josh Groban performs it.  I think you’ll recognize it and I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.

My father, when asked how he handled everything back in the day, replied that he just did what had to be done and kept on going.  I carry that advice with me each day now as I  now the “parent” to him.  It is sad but an honor as well to care for ones parents.  I just what what has to be done and keep on going.

Deep peace to you on this lovely Sunday!  Enjoy the music of life and make a tune or two of your own!

It’s hot, hot summer time and the perfect day for watching one of my favorite “feel good” movies!  P.S. I Love You is  lovely romantic comedy that I know you’ll enjoy.  Here’s a bit of music and scenery to entice you!

I’m running late!  Reuniting with old friends, family and having our kids arrive yesterday made the past week a fun one!  I’ve been lazy today but can’t miss my Simple Sunday post so I chose one of my favorite simple songs from long ago to share with you!  It’s perfect for lying on the beach or relaxing on he front porch with a pitcher of iced tea.  Enjoy!

This has been a tough week for everyone.  Shootings, violence, racism and hatred.  It’s enough already.  I’m sick and tired of politics, I have no place in my mind or heart for racism and hatred.   I found this simple song while scrolling through YouTube and it suits the day perfectly.  Joy and peace to all!

Satie on Sunday morning.  Is there anything better?  Quiet, sensual, perfect accompaniment to morning coffee….perhaps a beignet or croissant?  Enjoy and make today a simple day!

I’m back!  I’ll share some of what has been happening over the past couple of weeks.  But for now I’m wishing a happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  I’m sharing a beautiful song by Judy Collins, “My Father”.  It’s one of my favorites.  I’m celebrating two very special dads today, Mr. T and my dad.

I have always loved a good movie.  The Mission, made in 1986, and starring Jeremy Irons and Robert DeNiro is a special favorite.  The story of a Jesuit priest travelling to South America  to build a mission in which to worship is so beautiful yet tragic.  I love the theme song from The Mission and have linked it here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN7ZhxaUNBg.  At the end of the movie a simple verse from the Bible, John 1:5 shows across the screen “”The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”  Wishing you a peaceful, simple Sunday….let your light shine.

I chose “Dancing With The Wind” for today’s musical offering.  It’s a lighthearted piece composed by Omar Akram.  The photos are beautiful, Spring flowers and clear blue skies.  While you enjoy the day make time to go outside and bask in the sun or walk in the rain, depending on the weather where you are.  Take time for yourself, to do something that brings you joy.  And remember to keep it simple!

One of my favorite musical artists is Willie Nelson.  I grew up in Texas and cut my teeth on Willie Nelson as a young adult.  What a character and what a talent!  I saw him in concert once in Denver.  He gave so much to the audience…he gave his all.  Very few breaks, all of his favorites and such a presence on stage.  His passion for the music he makes was palpable.  He performs “Just Breathe” with one of his talented sons who is following on the path his father set forth.  Sometimes a bit of good country music and especially if it is by Willie Nelson is just what a Sunday morning needs!

Happy Mother’s Day!  Whether you have little ones, grown sons and daughters or children of the fur variety it’s a day to celebrate love!  I found this lovely piece by Bernward Koch, “Back To Myself” to share with you today!  I wish you all a wonderful day!
