Annie’s Song competed with the noise of sizzling bacon on the stove while my husband blended the ingredients for his famous blueberry waffles at the kitchen island. I hung a big birthday banner in the dining room and anchored streamers to flow from the ceiling as a centerpiece over the table.
You fill up my senses like a night in the forest…the familiar old song played in the background on the kitchen radio.
The morning sunshine beamed through the windows as I set my dining room table for yet another special family gathering, Sookie’s birthday brunch. Our granddaughter turned nine. Last Saturday, her dad planned a busy, fun day. He included us and I couldn’t wait for them to arrive. I wouldn’t be able to go ice skating up in the mountain with the rest of the family but having a special breakfast together and opening presents gave me something to look forward to all week long!
Papa Tom and I reminisced while we prepared the party food that morning and chatted about the oldie radio station we discovered a few weeks ago.
“How many John Denver unwritten songs leave you feeling cheated?” he asked me.
However, for me, it’s Jim Croce. He was my favorite and I’m always ready to hear his song again, I’ll have to say I love you in a song.
I wish they both were still here with us today writing and singing.
What about you. What artist left before your appetite for his/her music was fulfilled?
It’s grand to be in a third grader’s world! Sookie is learning her multiplication tables and just tried out for the school play, Peter Pan. She sang a solo and got a part too!
Tom and Amy told me that our little birthday girl caught on quickly at the ice rink and in no time took off with major speed.
