Feeling the love!!

Alicia at Two B's And Me surprised me today with a wonderful award! So, thanks a ton, Alicia...thanks for spreading a little love for my blog!!

Let me tell you all my favorite thing about Alicia...she is my musical soul mate. Everytime I visit her blog...I jam to whatever song is on at the time. Her playlist must be huge, because I haven't heard the same song twice...and they are ALL wickedly awesome songs!!!

Want to hear something funny? When Alicia found my blog, she found my post about our son, Joey who passed away. When I was writing this letter to my son...a song kept popping into my head. I couldn't remember the name of the song, or the artist...I could only remember one lyric from the song..."God speed, little man." I was going to write that lyric at the end of my letter to my son...but couldn't remember the song...so, I didn't.

Anyway...fast forward a few days.... Alicia finds my blog through Kam at A Wrinkle in Time and finds my letter to my son and leaves a comment saying that my post, "touched her heart like I wouldn't believe." I link to her blog for the first time to check her out and leave her some love...and what song is playing on her playlist? No, not "Baby's Got Back"..."God Speed" by the Dixie Chicks is playing and my heart melted.

So, thanks again Alicia...the award is greatly appreciated!!
