Thursday brings with it the almost close to a long rainy,windy, & cold week here in the Pacific Northwest. It also means go over & see the links at Goodnight Moon to link up for What's your Song week #6 for them, but only week #2 for me.
A little background on my song choice for this week. I was cleaning out my closet & came across a cassette tape labeled "Kristy's music". I stopped smiled & laughed out loud. Kristy was one of my Best Friends in my college days. We meet the first week of school at David Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN & pretty much where inseparable for the next four years. Our circle included my other best friends Misty,Paula, & Ron. We where the Four musketeers & watch out we where a handful to say the least!
Our story came to a tragic end in our senior year during Spring Break week. The one & ONLY time we decided to skip our usual pilgrimage to PCB to stay in Nashville to work & study- I know what where we thinking?? I have gone over that week a million times in my head with "what if we had gone", would my best friend still be here? Kristy passed away in a tragic two car wreck late into our week - my college life was never the same again. My world felt like it had crashed down. Her sister Kathy & I where left to try to make sense of her loss. I lived with her she was my roomate & like a sister. Even though at the time we weren't living together we where only one street away. We pledged the same sorority & she was at the time our sorority President- it left a HUGE hole in my world.
Anyway back to the tape I found- I was in charge of Kristy's Memorial service which meant it MUST have music! We loved to sing & dance all the time. I decided to put together a collection of her favorite songs to have playing as people came in to sit & wait for the service to start. One of OUR favorites at the time was 10, OOO Maniacs- These are the Days. As I popped the tape into a stereo in my house & that song came flooding out over the speakers I danced! With my son who thought mommy was losing it & sang at the top of my lungs! I laughed & smiled - I just knew Kristy was there with me reminding me that even still today to cherish every moment because you never know what tomorrow holds. So my song choice this week is dedicated to Kristy, Ron, Paula, & Misty. May we always remember the good old days & cherish all the wonderful days we still have together. ~Love you Kristy~
