Sunday Morning Song of the Moment


I get lost in many of the songs that I love. I get lost in the music, the lyrics and the feelings/message. I usually can feel it with every ounce of me and am completely moved by the ones that acutely strike a nerve.

Few songs, make me cry everytime I hear them. But there is one.
The first time I heard it, I blew a kiss and sent it to Connor. He was just a baby when I bought the Home album by The Dixie Chicks. And when I heard this song, it was like someone hit me over the head with a brick. And upon doing so, it was as if they cut open my head, my heart, my once-inhabited womb and placed this song there. Forever to be shared between Connor & I. And seriously, everytime I hear it, I well up. For this song lingers deep and just below the surface. Where all my love resides for my first born.

The song means so much to me (and Rav) that we chose it to play at our wedding for a three-way dance with our baby boy. However, the DJ made a boo-boo and played the wrong song. So, we never got the opportunity to have the three-way dance to that song in a public fashion. But we've had three-way dances with our boy to this song many, many times on the dance floor that is our living room floor, or Connor's bedroom. And that is just as meaningful.

Roll it.......

Godspeed
By: The Dixie Chicks

Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirates sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams everynight
And I love you

Godspeed, little man

Sweet dreams, little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angel's wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch

Good night moon, we'll find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angel's wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless Mommy and matchbox cars
God bless Daddy and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen" wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angel's wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams
