I awoke Sunday feeling, well, fairly drained; I was tired, stiff, and just felt like going back to bed. But I drug myself out to the kitchen for my coffee, hoping in an hour or so I’d begin to spunk up.
An hour went by and no change: I still wanted to crawl back in the bed. Instead I opened my WordPress app to look at some of the comments I had and two popped out at me: I will go into them in reverse order, which you’ll understand in a minute.
The first was a comment that led me to a lovely post from J. Now, some might not see this as lovely as I (and she) but you have to click the link at the end and listen to the song to know how wonderful it is. And some folks still might not make the connection. Go ahead; I’ll wait …
Do you see how the song fits? It took me about three seconds for it to click. And then my whole morning changed, becoming much brighter. Heck, my aches and pains and all seemed to melt away in an instant when I “got” it.

I hope you get the symbolism she used here; I certainly did. And I surely empathize with it.
This is the first of three posts in the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge that Meredith nominated me to do; I love all kinds of quotes so I readily accept the challenge and thank her for inviting me to be a part of it. There are a few rules to the game which I’ll share now:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you
- Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days on your blog. It can be your own, or from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires you.
- Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavor
I nominate the following to participate:
Of course nomination in no way requires participation, merely invitation to do so.
