Things That Touched My Heart Today
Today I came across a few things that touched my heart. I thought I’d share them with you.
Have you heard of Blue Monday? You can read about it here. Depression cannot be depicted by a day, as those of us who’ve lived with it surely know.
I was scrolling around the web and came across a few Rory + Joey Feek songs. Though Joey is tragically now gone, their daughter is her legacy.
I wrote a book review almost exactly a year ago about Rory and Joey Feek, a book that truly touched my heart. I thought I’d share a few of their songs from YouTube. Here’s “When I’m Gone.” Click over and turn up your sound.
Then here’s “My Last Breath Here” by Rory Feek.
Here is my book review of the book.
I warn you, grab a box of Kleenex. If you’d like to keep up with Rory and their little girl, Indiana, here is the Joey + Rory Facebook page.
In other news, Puerto Rico is still recovering, and will be for a long time. But here’s a story of how New York Building Inspectors came in to help out.
Holly Butcher lost her battle with bone cancer at 27. But she left behind a letter that has gone viral. Who says wisdom must come with age?
Has anything touched your heart today?
I texted on Monday with a young woman who was one of my daughter’s best friends. My daughter died a year and a half ago from anorexia. I hadn’t been in touch with her friend for about six months. She sent me a Christmas card, and we’re making plans to get together when the weather gets better. We hope to be a support for each other.
There is a lot of music that I can’t listen to because I just cry and cry. So I have found that soft jazz seems to suit me and there aren’t any lyrics. My heart was touched today by the thoughts of my new puppy that comes home to us on Friday!
Our middle daughter and her family just moved back to Puerto Rico after Christmas and I miss them.
Joey, Rory and sweet Indiana have always made me cry. What a sweet family. As for the 27 year old who passed she was filled with so much wisdom, so sorry she is gone but she left a legacy/lesson for those who are open to it.
Have a great day Brenda,
I know. I love their songs. What a sweet couple. Joey was taken way too young. As was the 27 year old who died recently.
I wish I could be Indiana’s nanny. I love kids,and I’d help this family. I listen to their music,all the time. Love it! Brenda in Canton , MI.
I loved Rory and Joey. If I could help this family,I sure would. I lost a very close friend in April,from cancer. My prayers are with him and his daughter always. Brenda,in Canton, MI.
Wow, Brenda, oh my gosh you just made me cry. I guess I have the Monday blues now. My sweetie always thinks I’m a big sap because I cry at things I see on TV….I guess he’s right.
I cry at things I see on TV too, so you’re certainly not alone there.
