Yesterday was a hard day. Although I don’t cry a lot, I found myself weeping profusely … twice.
I’d prefer to keep the details of the first occasion to myself, but I wanted to share the second one with you here. This snippet from “Britain Has Talent” is a rare gem from a middle-aged Catholic woman named Susan Boyle who dedicated her entire life to tending to her parents … and only after they had died got a chance to fulfill her own dream and her mother’s last request, to share her gift, publicly, with the world. Check out this YouTube bit … you’ll be glad to hear that some dreams never die … and reminded that not all Extraordinary Moms tend to children. Some care for parents as well.
And if you’re still feeling a bit blue, check out this beautiful video sent to me by my friend Deb Elmore. If anyone knows the original artist please let me know, as I would love to give credit to him or her!
I’ve put both links in the “inspirational” section of the blogroll, in case you need them again.
Is she amazing or what?! I had the same reaction and showed it to my husband when he got home.
Did you happen to write down what the “Enjoy the Ride” video said? It is no longer posted and I have been trying to remember what it said. Thanks!
I’m sorry, I didn’t write down the text — I’m hoping she’ll repost the video soon!
