Friday Fulmination and Yearning for Home

4 Jan

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
― Edith Sitwell
************
Winter can be cold and heartless, but the warmth of a mother’s smile or a child’s touch can bring solace and sunshine to any heart. Who says you can never go home again? Home is where the heart is. My heart is going home!

Carole King and I are singing a rainy winter’s day song. “Till I’m home again and feeling right.”


HOME AGAIN

Sometimes I wonder
If I’m ever gonna make it home again
It’s so far and out of sight

I really need someone to talk to
And nobody else
Knows how to comfort me tonight

Snow is cold, rain is wet
Chills my soul right to the marrow

I won’t be happy till I see you alone again
Till I’m home again and feeling right

Snow is cold, rain is wet
Chills my soul right to the marrow

I won’t be happy till I see you alone again
Till I’m home again and feeling right

Till I’m home again and feeling right
I wanna be home again and feeling right

Theme Song Thursday

3 May

My youngest son is visiting from Chicago for a few days. He is kind, considerate, and unassuming. He had plans with his dad for almost every minute of his four day stay.(Dad’s plans of course) But, he suggested that they meet Mom (That’s my boy) for lunch after golf and before going to the Rangers/White Sox game. Unfortunately, the Texas weather is unseasonably cold and rainy for a few days, and his stay will be yucky outside, but my heart is all warm and fuzzy inside because my baby is here. My baby is a couple months shy of thirty, but to me he is still my little boy.

Child of Mine by Carole King

Although you see the world different than me
Sometimes I can touch upon the wonders that you see
All the new colors and pictures you’ve designed
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

You don’t need direction, you know which way to go
And I don’t want to hold you back, I just want to watch you grow
You’re the one who taught me you don’t have to look behind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Nobody’s gonna kill your dreams
Or tell you how to live your life
There’ll always be people to make it hard for a while
But you’ll change their heads when they see you smile

The times you were born in may not have been the best
But you can make the times to come better than the rest
I know you will be honest if you can’t always be kind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine,
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine
