SINGING MY FEELINGS: SOMEONE EXACTLY LIKE YOU...VAN MORRISON

I woke up this morning with this song on my heart. At first I was like WTF? I am getting divorced in a few hours why would I be singing a song about new love and finding new love. Then it dawned on me. I am supposed to be singing a song about finding new love. It is about hope. Today is not an ending...but a beginning. It is another example of changing my mind....changing my life. Rather than seeing today as a sad ending. I am reminded that I need to see it as a glorious beginning. So this song is appropriate. The lyrics and music are stunningly beautiful and it indeed makes me hopeful.


Someone exactly like you - Van Morrison

I've been searching a long time
For someone exactly like you
I've been travelling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. Someone exactly
Like you.

I've been travellin' a hard road
Lookin' for someone exactly like you
I've been carryin' my heavy load
Waiting for the light to come
Shining through.
Someone like you makes it
All worth while
Someone like you keeps
Me satisfied. Someone exactly
Like you.

I've been doin' some soul searching
To find out where you're at
I've been up and down the highway
In all kinds of foreign lands
Someone like you... etc.

I've been all around the world
Marching to the beat of a different
Drum.
But just lately I have
Realized
The best is yet to come.

I've always liked that song too.

You're going to be alright...It's going to be alright..Like you said, look at this as a new beginning..wipe the slate clean and think of the possibilities.

I know that that is easier said or written than done...but we have to go on...We can't stay in one place..

And you will go on..I believe this and my prayers are with you.

Thinking of you today, Babz, as you make that official transition that marks the incredible journey you've been on. You are amazing, and show incredible strength through your writing and voice!

Bask in that strength from the other side, and continue to be the wise and whole Mama that you are for your children. They need someone exactly like you!

Hey Love!

As you have stated...this is the beginning of a wonderful new journey. A journey that is sure to bring about the change that is supposed to be. A change that even the seasons recognize, as spring is to come in a few days.

Be blessed sister friend!
