Sometimes a song will not only be appealing, but will touch your soul. There are even some songs that make you feel that you can accomplish anything. Maybe songs from the movies, “Rockie” or “Top Gun” come to mind. I agree that there are songs in those movies that totally rock.

Tonight, however, there is another song that truly makes me feel that I can fly…far away from all the troubles, trials and unhappiness. I can accomplish anything while Andrea Bocelli is singing encouragement to never give up.

I do believe that we were born to shine and be happy.


Because We Believe

Look outside; It’s morning.
This is a day you’ll remember.
Hurry, get up and go.
There are those who believe in you.
Don’t give up.

Once in every life
There comes a time
We walk out all alone
And into the light.
The moment will not last, but then
We remember it again
When we close our eyes.

Like stars across the sky.
In order to shine,
You will have to win.
We were born to shine.
All of us here Because We Believe.

Look ahead and never turn your back
On the caress of your dreams.
Your hopes, and then,
turn towards the day that will be.
There is a finish line there.

Like stars across the sky.
In order to shine,
You will have to win.
We were born to shine.
All of us here Because We Believe.

Do not give up.
Someone is with you.

Like stars across the sky.
We were born to shine.
In order to shine,
You will need to win,
And then you win.

I want to win.

I got so teary I could hardly read the post. I remember like yesterday, I wanted to hold my baby and smell her baby freshness. I made that out fit. You notice you have shoes and socks on. No going bare foot for you out side. I would take you out and try to stand you up but no way, you just screamed , “No , No, No!” lol.

Oh thank you for this post. The last few days have been so hard. It has just brightened my day and brought me some rainbow snow memories. I love you my beautiful child, kissssss
