After having fun yesterday afternoon spazzing with everyone as we waited for blimp news (how often do you get to use that sentence?), I missed the big event entirely.
I got a call last night from my dad telling me his sister, my aunt, had passed away. It wasn’t entirely a surprise, she’d been in the hospital for some time after a series of strokes, but he was very upset, nonetheless, and I was on the phone with him, then other family members, for most of the night.
After I finally got off the phone close to midnight, all I wanted to do was listen to Angels (the iheartradio “Stripped” version) and, strangely enough, Parachutes and Airplanes. That’s when I finally saw the blimp news … perfect timing … nothing like a shot of David joy when you need it most!
It got me thinking about how cool it is that when David sets a goal (for career, family or just for fun), he doesn’t let anything break his stride… he does everything in his power to make it happen. He makes every day count.
David, and the songs he sings, are helping me try to do that too. So excuse me while I go “move forward” on my own to-do list … but first a song in David’s ongoing theme of flying high (ZG, P&A, Elevator) (thanks, bluebarsa for reminding me of this one! 🙂 ) ….

P.P.S. So what’s on your bucket list? (And what songs (David or otherwise) get you through tough times?) (& I declare it “Lurkers/Hoverers Day,” so come on down & add your two cents! … especially if that’s on your to-do list! 🙂 🙂 🙂 )
