Music has always been my "ESCAPE"...
Whether it was a breakup, a fight with my best friend, a fight with my mom, falling in love with my husband, my wedding day,the death of my amazing aunt, finding out that one of my favourite people in this world has cancer, having my first child,,, whatever the situation, I have a song that reminds me of almost every big moment in my life. I sing my girls to sleep. I sing to them when they're sick, when they're sad, and when we do just about anything.
Music has gotten me through some pretty tough times in my life. It has also made so many good times even better.
Without music, I don't know where I would be.
I pray that my girls love music as much as my husband and I do, and I hope that music will play as big of a part in their lives as it does in mine..
There are a few songs that I can think of that have had a Huge emotional impact on me, but really, there are very few that can literally bring me to the point of tears. None that can make me feel like my heart is being ripped out of me as I listen to it, and none that I could just put on repeat and never get sick of.
The first time I heard the song SOMEONE LIKE YOU by ADELE, I was driving home from the grocery store. Tears streamed down my face and I felt like I couldn't breathe. I really did feel as though my heart was being ripped out of me.
It was a crazy feeling. A feeling that no song has ever made me feel. A feeling that comes over me every single time that I hear the song.
These feelings weren't because of personal feelings. The song really doesn't have personal meaning to me. There is no one that I think of when I hear the song. The feelings were because Adele's voice in this song is (for lack of better words) HAUNTING. My heart breaks for her in this song. My heart breaks for all of the people that this song does have personal meaning for.
This is, by far the most amazing song ever written in my opinion.. It is the most powerful song that I have ever heard. ( I know! I feel very strongly about this! LOL)
So, today, I am grateful for not only music, but for ADELE.
