8.15.17 Hawaii Day 23

Days like today are what life’s all about. Spent the day with one of the most enlightened, bright, shining lights I’ve even known. So very thankful to know her. She gives so very much and today, I was brought to tears with the thought that I might, just might, have been able to (even in some small way) return the favor. It was good.

Upon returning for the evening, I was able to reflect on how very blessed I am to have (and to have had) such amazing people in my life. When I was a very little tyke, my Pop would play this song while my tiny feet stood on his and we danced. Some years later, at the height of pre-teen celebrity crush life stage, I longingly listened to Elvis Presley woo his latest onscreen love in Blue Hawaii. Fast forward a little further as I danced with my husband to this in our kitchen while waiting for dinner to finish in the oven. And finally, to just the other day at dinner, a harpist strummed this tune as I ate dinner with lovely friends and reminisced on all the moments of my life this song has seen.

Can’t Help Calling In Love

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you?

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Somethings are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Somethings are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you
For I can’t help falling in love with you
