Everyday – Filled with Life and Love!

Every day – Filled with Life and Love

There is a song that starts the day in our house every morning, because the music/lyrics are rich and full!

When the music gets turned on the sound reverberates through the house (good sound system lol) It is played loud and everyone in our home stops what they are doing and we all join in the living room and all of us, from the youngest ones to the teenagers (Jordan and any friends staying over) and adults, (Christina and myself) we dance and sing all the way through. The scene is in a nightclub but it is the words in the chorus that we sing to and enjoy!

Nope, I‘m not making this up. In this household we have weathered extreme loss and a horrific storm that followed, it took years and a mighty battle raged here, through sickness, pain of loss, sadness, despair, anger, and now we’ve come through and we embrace each day. We haven’t forgotten, and we do remember, but now our todays are as filled with happiness as we can make them.

These are not just words being written. We are filled with life and love. Because we are young, each and every one of us. Think on this, if you will! Enjoy the weekend everyone. This is your life. Yours to live, love and be loved. Embrace it! Right Now!


By the way it’s the 46th Anniversary of Star Trek! Yay, you go Trekkies – Engage!

  1. I cannot think of a better way to start a day and that song is perfect! Penny, every time you and Christina write, I marvel at how your family has overcome such tremendous loss and still give so much back to all of us. Have an amazing Sunday! 🙂

  2. I had heard this song in a bar ages ago, and by the end of it it was in my head but then I forgot it, possibly something to do with a few pints although I’m not sure, I liked it from the off, and interestingly Janelle Monáe was in an episode of Stargate Universe that I watched the other day. Although big love for the Star Trek universe too!

  3. I need to get this song on my iPod!! 😀 Thanks for sharing!

    …and totally coincidentally, I wore a Star Trek shirt to work today… it has Spock striking a gangsta pose… and it says “Trek Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself”

    Awesome stuff 😀

  4. Hi Penny! I’m been so busy lately with school and all. But I see you keep on generating those amazing posts of yours haha. I love music, too and I often feel compelled to sing along (though usually off-pitch lol). And as in The Count of Monte Cristo, the deepest despair is followed by absolute happiness! 😀 Wonderful post.

    • 🙂 Thanks Alice, Well you can’t hear the kids arguing in the background, the dog barking also and the chaos that is pretty constant but doesn’t happen to show up in this photo, I used my webcam, but I had to do it quickly or would have spoiled the whole “glam” look. I think I had 3 seconds to set the timer, run to the sofa and look like, well like it looks 🙂

  5. That music is brilliant …. Love it 🙂 It is definitely the jump up and dance style (if you can jump up and dance lol) I tend to stagger up and stagger about – especially on a bad day lol

    I have just brought this for my iPhone though, thank you for directing that to us. It is a great song. 😀

Thank you for your thoughts!
