I love the phrase coined by Elbert Hubbard "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." This positive outlook is at the core of my being and a driving force of Will Forever music. Like my fellow singer-songwriter Dolly Parton says "The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." It has been some time since my last blog post, so I wanted to share some goings on.
Have you ever seen a rainbow? Did an image just pop up in your head? Do you remember when and where you saw it?
I ran into Ben, an old friend, after my show Saturday and we began talking about rainbows. It's no wonder as I surround myself with rainbows! Anyway, he asked me if I had ever seen a complete rainbow. I immediately recalled seeing a rainbow encircling the sun when I was a Lifeguard teaching a student how to float on his back in the city pool. I later learned that this phenomenon is called a sun halo. What my friend actually meant was if I had ever seen the end of a rainbow. He told me that one time he was driving way out in the country and saw a rainbow end right on a cow! We laughed.
On Thanksgiving Day, our 5 year old daughter Piper excitedly exclaimed to her four cousins "Smile at him and he'll smile back at you!". She was talking about our 3 month 2 week old son Rowan. What an inspiration he is!
During my show Saturday, I kept telling the crowd that I want to turn frowns into rainbows with my music. Next time, maybe I'll say that I want to turn frowns into rainbows and then turn those rainbows upside down into rainbow smiles! Can you imagine that?
Hello to my Forever Fans and "Skittles" Kara and Kelsey! Thank you again for buying Will Forever Music stickers and for sending me the photos!
We can fix it up (our world) peace by peace!
