This week’s post is completely inspired by a concert I recently attended which featured the incomparable Michael Bublé. All I can say is WOW! I thought his music was great before, but nothing compares to seeing him live! I am completely in love with this man! Okay, enough fangirling, but seriously! His music has an amazing ability to take you to a happy place, no matter what kind of mood you are in, and I find that a very powerful thing!
This song can get me swaying immediately, and the words cause my heart to flutter. The idea that someone can be your “everything” pumps new blood into my old romantic heart, especially when Michael sings it to me (okay, I promise that is the last time, but seriously he is so adorable). This idea of having a safe place to land becomes more and more precious as I get older. Some friendships pre-date my adult children, and I have been blessed to have these individuals support and love me like no one else can. They are the ladies that have been there for me through every life event and have poured the drinks through the tears that threatened to crush me. They are absolutely my everything, and this song is dedicated to them a million times over.
The romantic love he is singing about his awesome too, but this song means so much more than that to me. As it plays, images filter through my mind of all the people I love and I realize how fortunate I have been to have each and every one of them in my life. So, of course, my “everything” includes my incredible family, who put up with the side of me that not many get to see. It brings me to my knees to imagine life without them and my love for them is unmeasurable.
And now that I am writing, my friend network is growing, and I have met some incredible people on Twitter, Facebook, and through organizations like Romance Writers of America. These folks haven’t known me nearly as long as my BFFs, but they are quickly becoming my everything, as I navigate this new chapter of my life. Their inspiration, help, and support, when it’s needed, is invaluable and it is this growing network I also think of as well when I hear this song.
If you are reading this, you are part of my network now too, so welcome! I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts, follow me on social or send me a note when something I write hits you in the feels. I want to thank you all and send you all the love!
So, if you haven’t heard this song, and especially if you happen to need to be brought to your happy place, please give it a listen! I guarantee it will have your toes tapping in no time! And to the special ladies that shared their love of Mr. Bublé with me a few weeks back… always remember, you are my everything! XO
