Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


The Music Of Life - 4Ms #Music

I've been living because the script is there. It keeps me going and every so often I have much passion again for living and then the other times, I'm fighting to stay above water.  I guess that's life ja.

Today we had a close call. I almost missed one of D's soccer games. Good thing I followed the urging in my heart to check the email again when I woke up. So instead of having three hours to prepare, I only had 45 minutes!

I got all the foods ready and we were 18 minutes late. He still got to play. I'm happy about that. I'm always so hard on myself when I'm late. I hate being late.

The team didn't win either of their games, but it's about practice and learning, unlike the recreational soccer. Parents are advise to not coach their kids from the sidelines. I'm not sure they read the emails sent from the coaches.

After soccer we hightailed it to church for their music team practice.  Then home for dinner.

A poor dinner.  Oh well, it tasted good and all were full.

It's a new week of school again. I pray the kids will continue their good run. I wish school didn't take up so much of their day.

Thanks all for visiting and sharing in our music fun!

A song that I've been re-winding lately "Let Her Go'

His voice has a different kind of quality to it that pulls me in, makes me think, cry,  hope, despair.

And I would send this song to my husband, but it might seem I'm sending a message or being influential on my behalf, so I share with y'all and enjoy it's gift until I find another.

Welcome to today's music.  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps.

  1. This is really cool. I hadn't heard of it before, but I'm going to join in. Momentarily, I will!

    1. Oooh awesome!
      So excited to have you!

  2. I don't like being late, either. But, we were ALWAYS late going anywhere when the kids were at home. I think it's difficult to try to get a family of 4 or 5 out the door to one's destination on time. That being said, I know there are families who are successful at not being tardy. I guess, I'm a bit unorganized. *blush*

    Great to dance with you. I like "Let Her Go", too! Have a magical music filled week!

    1. I'm only early when it's 10mins out the door and we just woke up and we are late. When I wake up two hours before to plan to go, bam. Always late!

      WE are all a bit disorganize I think :)

      Thanks for coming over :)

  3. Ah, sometimes being late happens, not fun but it does happen. And, parents love to coach from the sidelines, just love to :)
    Great song!

    1. Thank you Lucy.
      How are you!
      Are you back!
      You are missed!

  4. I absolutely love this he has a unusual voice too it did well here in the UK ;-)

    Have a tanfastic week ;-)

  5. Sweet Callie, be easy on yourself. You're a great mom and good person; times will surely get better. this song is new to me but very nice. Happy Monday!

    1. Thank you Lynn.
      If the emotional stress would change, then I'd feel some sense of relief, but it's prevailing heavily.

  6. Ah, we are always late. before I had kids, I was always early. And I love the people who tell me to "plan ahead" for any hiccups. Yeah, like I can plan that the 3 year old is suddenly going to have a 15 minute complete melt down over what shoes to wear. And there are still 2 other to contend with in the midst of that. *eye roll*
    Some things we just have to give ourselves a hall pass on, ya know?

    Love this guy's voice. very unique. Never heard of them before, but definitely gonna check more of their music.

    1. Ooh yes girl! They do love to tell you that!

      Thank you for sharing
      Have a solid week!

  7. broxton loves soccer... and luckily they dont keep score...
    ( i do in my head and we haven't won a game yet... lol...)

    1. Haha we do still keep score right :) Just don't let them know

  8. Go easier on yourself, hon. You did make a dinner that was well liked. Everyone had enough, and enough is as good as a feast.

    Love you music selection for today. Enjoy your week!


    1. Thank you Danielle.
      I feel anything but easy right now and the more the days count down, the worse I'm feeling.

  9. I agree easier on yourself is a good thing. You are doing the best you can.
    As for the song, his voice is for sure different. I kind of like it actually which is interesting since his is not the best I have heard.

    Peace of heart my friend, Naila Moon

    1. Thank you Naila.
      As long as I give my best right.

  10. You know what, his voice reminds me of Cat Stevens. I liked Cat Stevens' music.

    Our soccer coaches are so disorganized this year. The kids don't notice, but the parents sure do. I hear a lot of snide comments on the sidelines, I don't think those help.

    1. Now I want to hear something from Cat Stevens :)

      I think some of the teams here are that way too.
      They even can't begin their season because they need more coaches!

      hope it all improves on your end as well as ours for the kids sakes.

  11. It sounds like the most important thing even though you were late is you made it to the soccer game and your son got to play! No need to feel bad, mistakes happen. We are all only human after all :)

    This is such a beautiful song! His voice really does draw you in and really makes you FEEL.

    Thank you so much for sharing this new song and artist with us all this week! Have a musical week :)

    1. Thank you beautiful
      Enjoy your week also.

  12. I love this song. I was just listening to it today thinking how true!!
