The End, #957


There’s no way to describe yesterday except to say that is just plainly sucked.  It was one of those days that you want to forget, but you know it will stay with you for a lifetime.

Yesterday I watched the raw despair of a family burying their 19-year old son/brother/cousin/nephew/friend after a sudden death.  I’m not going to go into detail about what a wonderful person this young man was, because the truth is, it is still too painful to write about.  I need some time before I can write a tribute blog for him.

What I will say is that going to a funeral of a young person who was taken away in the blink of an eye is a good dose of reality to get your priorities in check.  Right there in that moment of seeing this family’s suffering from the loss of someone who meant everything to them is enough to truly comprehend why you should tell the people you care for that you love them and why you shouldn’t let the small stuff in life get to you.

Life is precious, and it is so easy to forget that the number one most important thing is love.  We all get wrapped up in our day to day craziness, but as the Beatles said, “And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.”  That is why it is my song of the day, because if I haven’t said it…I love you.  And I really mean it.




About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
