There was something about that song that always made me think of my father. I couldn’t even remember the title of the song, but every time it played I would think of him. Abide with me and You’ll Never Walk Alone has the same effect.
But that isn’t a bad thing.
There is another song, which reminds me of my sister. She passed away due to Cancer last December. Encanto was a popular film at the time. The song ”Growing Pressure” always makes me cry now. Sweet Caroline too, because it was her favourite song and her name.
I am now at a stage in my life when I think about aging. I am closer to sixty than I am fifty. I don’t know why there is the sudden realisation I am getting old because every birthday brings a new shock lol. I am lucky to have the gift of growing old and look forward to being of that generation, who can say and do what they want (within reason) because they’ve earnt it.
