Happy New Year and Blessings to All!
Isabella Tayler Cunningham and James Lawson MacDonald (my grandparents) on their wedding day.
I chose this Auld Lang Syne song by Charles C Stanley because it sounds just like the 78 rpm records that my grandparents played when I was little. Maybe it was even this artist because he was from that era.
My grandparents were both born in Scotland and met after they came here. I don't know what year they were married, but I do know it was Valentines day.
I always meant to ask mom these things.
I love this song... Auld Lang Syne... but it ALWAYS makes me feel very sentimental and sad and missing the people I have loved and don't see anymore or the people I care about... but our paths have changed and so never see them either.
Even though I really do adore the song...the feelings it evokes are so strong...causing me to miss the special people in my life, both past and present... so much...that it almost hurts.
I was actually all weepy and sentimental listening to all the different artists playing this song... until I listened to Jimmy Hendrix playing it. That perked me up and I began to listen to the rest of his music and didn't feel sentimental anymore. :)
But... for the next couple of days... I guess I will be sentimental. :)
Tomorrow night we will be having a quiet evening at home. We will have a late dinner and are renting a couple of movies. One all macho for my husband and a comedy for me. I am open to suggestions if anyone has any recommendations. :)
And I just want to add...that I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting your blogs and appreciate your visiting me here. I wish everyone a healthy, prosperous and blessedly Happy New Year! :)
