Quintessential, #SongLyricSunday #10Thankful

Question: How do I let someone know how thankful and grateful I am for their presence in my life?


Answer: I feature them on my blog, which I try to do (a little shoutout) whenever I possibly can.

Or I let a particular song speak volumes for the gratitude I feel.

Or both.

Every weekend, or as many of them as I can, I like to write down my list of ten things I’m thankful for that week or just in general,
which all stemmed from this here blog hop.

So this week’s
Song Lyric Sunday
is an easy one really. Thankful didn’t have to be in the name of the song, but as there are likely several, one popped into my head. I think it is uncommon enough that I should be the only one who has chosen this one:

I am thankful for music, songs, and song lyrics.


i remember what you said that day
be careful what you wish for baby cos’ it’s a crazy world outside but you’ve always got a place to hide
you’ve shown me things that i’d never seen
gave me something that i can believe
all the love you give, it’s a healing thing and i thank you
for the common ground that you shared with me
for the higher ground, the way you lifted me
now i come to you and you comfort me and i thank you i, i, i, thank you i, i, i, i, thank you i, i, i, thank you i, i, i, i, thank you
there are chances that i had to take and mistakes that i just had to make
california dreams don’t all come true
but i could always count on you
[chorus] i remember what you said that day you’ve always known just what to say
i was blind, but now i see
thank you for forgiving me
ohhhhhh, yeah… [chorus] i, i, i thank you… thank you (fade out)



I am thankful for the chance, every so often, to combine blog hops.

I am thankful for everyone who I’ve met through the TToT and who show up on a weekly basis to share what they are thankful for in their own lives.

I am thankful for a tip-off of a radio interview of one of my favourite musical performers/artists.

I am thankful for the chance to see one of my nephew’s swimming lessons. Being back at that pool brings back a load of memories, both good and not so good ones, but I am thankful for the smell of the pool and the sounds of children loving the water and the time with family.

I am thankful for sounds that are so very special, like the sound of my unborn niece/nephew’s heartbeat. (I’m going with niece.)


Sound is one of my most valuable remaining senses, what another of my favourite weekly blog hops was all about this week.

Finish The Sentence Friday

I am thankful for pizza and birthday cake with family, for the chance to be an aunt to such wonderfully imaginative kids, and so sweet and fun too. They make me smile and laugh and believe in magic.

I am thankful for all the loved ones I’m blessed to have, those I’ve met in recent months, like my writing mentor and my violin teacher. I am lucky to have all of you in my corner.

The quintessential feeling of gratitude. I am grateful for my ability to recognize it.

  1. Combining blog hops is great when you can do it. How fun that you were able to listen to heartbeat of your unborn niece/nephew. Being able to enjoy family time fun is the best.

  2. Finish the Sentence Friday !! my very first bloghop I really enjoy(ed) the variety of views that were created by the ‘inkblot’ of a single sentence fragment. (I need to wrestle my schedule into shape so that I can participate more frequently than I have been. Perhaps once I finish writing Almira (hopefully soon, around the first of the year), I can get back to joining in on the fun.

    • Inkblot. Interesting way to look at it and I can always count on you, Clark, for that. I will be sad when Almira comes to an end, by the first of the new year you say, but I have really enjoyed seeing that world through your eyes. I feel the same, as far as visible blog hops go, when I hear you all post your six sentence stories. I keep meaning to participate and I never seem to get to it by those weekly Thursdays. Maybe one day.

    Hi, Kerry. Love the Thank you song. Hope you have a great week. The heartbeat of a baby, how exciting. I’m wondering if you are going to find out for sure through Sonogram if it is a girl or a boy.

    • Hello Val. I don’t think my sister, the mother-to-be, would like that very much. She does not wish to find out before the birth and I think it best I not try to find out either. Haha. I like surprises, like this rare one we get a chance to hold on for, but I am also a rather impatient person when it’s something I’m really looking forward to. So, yeah, hard. The wait should be over by March.

    I have been listening to Broadway tunes every morning as I get ready for work instead of having the news on, as I couldn’t stand all the political stuff any longer around late September, and after it was over, I REALLY couldn’t stand hearing about it. Listening to the music, singing and dancing as I do my hair and make up and get dressed, puts me in such a good mood! How bad can your day be when you start out listening to “Hamilton”?!
    Great list!

    It’s a good week to be thankful. Music has an astonishing power, doesn’t it?
    The heartbeat of an unborn baby is a sound I’ll never forget. I can still hear it clear as day!

    • A powerful heartbeat is all that’s needed. I just hope things are not looking so bleak when my new little niece or nephew arrives. Hoping for better days. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment here with me.
