Wonderful Surprise

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Last Saturday, I was looking through my Kindle and decided to re-read some of my books. But instead, I accidently pressed the "music" button and up popped a message that asked if I would like to merge music files from another account?

I put a check into the box and up pops music that only Wayne could have put there.

You see, Wayne gave me this Kindle the Christmas of 2012, when I was in 'transition care'. Since I was in a nursing home, I requested that he take the Kindle home, so it wouldn't "grow legs and disappear".

After I came to Assisted Living, January 2013, Wayne brought me my Kindle. Then he died in April 2013.

Many songs were poignant and a few made the tears flow quite easily.

Van Halen: Jump

Aerosmith: Dream On
Come Together

Brothers In Arms: Money For Nothing

Bruno Mars: Just The Way You Are

Journey: Only the Young
Don't Stop Believing
Wheel In the Sky
I'll Be Alright Without You
Any Way You Want It
Ask The Lonely
Who's Crying Now
Separate Ways
Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'
Open Arms
Girl Can't Help It
Send Her My Love
Be Good To Yourself
When You Love A Woman

Billy Joel: Piano Man

Wayne....perhaps you thought I would find these songs when I most needed to feel you next to me.

But never did I imagine, finding this gift when you were in heaven and not by my side.

I love you and miss you daily, Babe!!!

    Annie, You brought tears to my eyes. Wayne's music for you was a perfect find. It's been over 10 years for me. Certain songs will still move me like that.

    Just recently I was cleaning out my spare bedroom and found some of Frank's hunting clothing. My son in law, who recently started hunting was thrilled to get them.

    Take care emoticon

    Awesome. I think it was the right time for you to find those songs. Remember he is always right beside you cheering for you. He is your personal cheerleader, your best friend, your coach. He is proud of you and loving you.
