I got tagged by Army of Mom. This is my first meme tag in my recollection, and I really do wanna play, but it may not turn out as happy as for most people.
Well, I cannot really say that I am in an enjoying mood right now. A good friend had a heart attack and valve surgery about a week ago. He is doing alright, in fact, was in church this morning, but at 54 years old, he did give us a scare. He is supposed to be taking it easy, but that’s like telling the wind to stop blowing.
On June 9, one of my crochet buddies passed away. She was 100 years old, but even as recently as the end of May had been well enough to wish me a safe journey when I went out of state, so to see her take a turn for the worse and move on rather quick is very disconcerting.
Then Saturday evening, June 11, an all-church e-mail came through that a member had died unexpectedly. I made blankets when his babies were born, and taught those kids in Sunday School. The couple were Regulars over coffee in the adult Fellowship Class. He is several months Younger than I am! It is believed to be a coronary: the EMTs did efforts all the way to the hospital. Even so, he was pronounced DoA.
There will be two funeral services this week. I should be able to attend, but I have classes right afterwards, so I cannot help with the dinners. My reputation for running the dish machine is legendary.
So, back to the music. I have been listening more as a sense of solace rather than enjoyment.
List five songs that you are currently digging … it doesn’t matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if they’re any good but they must be songs you’re really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artist and the song in your blog along with your five songs. Then tag five other people to see what they’re listening to.
Album// Artist// Song
On Eagle’s Wings—Michael Crawford for PANIS ANGELICUS
Favorite Hymns—Lawrence Welk for PRECIOUS LORD TAKE MY HAND sung by Tom Netherton
Sand and Water—Beth Nielsen Chapman for BEYOND THE BLUE and HEADS UP FOR THE WRECKING BALL
Another Star in the Sky—David Arkenstone the whole album (every time someone dies, I pull this out of the case)
Josh Groban—Josh Groban for TO WHERE YOU ARE
Lost Frontier—Peter Buffett for (Searching for) A PLACE CALLED HOME
and that makes six albums, but I don’t count it as extra credit. Well, maybe so, the bonus is that we have one fella still with us.
~~love and Huggs, Diane
Update: I forgot to Tag 5 people. I’m tired and I’m busy.
If you read this, and just wanna play, have at it.
