SATURDAY SAYINGS: LIFE REMINDERS AND A LOVELY LITTLE TUNE


Happy Saturday, Blogland!

I'm here with some quotes and sayings to help remind us of a few important things as we grow and change in life, which I truly think make a difference! :)
(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

Also, the inspiring, entertaining and oh so fun Shay, over at Lipstick & Melodies, always ends each of her fantastic posts with a lovely song. In fact, I don't think there has been one I haven't enjoyed or loved yet!

Anywho, this past week she had a song by Rosie Thomas, whom I somehow had yet to be introduced, and let's just say, I am now in love with her music, but even more so, her lyrics.

So, today, I thought I would also share a song with you that relates to me and my life so beautifully. Don't you just love when your thoughts seem to be eloquently and poetically put into words, backed by a lovely melody, I sure do...it's quite comforting! :)

"If it's all about timing, then I'm right where I should be...but often times I find that my thoughts play in rewind and won't free me from the past...if my life had it's way, how simple it would sway..."

...those right there, kiddies, are some oh so perfect lines to me. Needless to say, I think so many of you will be able to relate, in some form, from some time in your life. Enjoy this very soothing, lullaby-esque song.

"Like Wildflowers" by Rosie Thomas from her "With Love" album (2012)

Such a simple, lovely, honest tune, wouldn't you say? She explains a little about it's meaning, along with life, worth, hardship and purpose here. All before singing "Like Wildflowers" live (at the 9:50 mark), with a few lovely note changes, in Boston. All of which I think will also inspire you! :)

Thank you again, Shay, for introducing her to me, just when I needed it...once again, you rock! :)

Now, I'll leave you with a saying that simply made me laugh...probably because this is exactly what I tend to do! LOL!

  10. Great quotes Liesl, and such a pretty song that is perfectly fitted for your life. I listen to a lot of music with a similar style... sweet voice, acoustic background, meaningful lyrics. Google Lucy Rose, Sue Saleh, and Butterfly Boucher, you might adore these ladies too!!

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend my sweet friend.

    BIG HUG :)
