I love music - anykind of music. If you were to check out my ipod you would see everything from Tom Jones (remember him - What's New Pussycat) to Led Zeppelin and so many others in between. I just have a wide range that I enjoy and some inspire me like when I'm on the treadmill to keep moving. I'm sure like me, you can hear a certain song and it will transform you back into time to a certain point in your life or even a significant moment in your life. Every time I hear vintage Fleetwood Mac and especially the song Rhinnon by them I think of my courting days with Mr. Farmhouse - they were a favorite of ours. There's many songs that I react to and bring back some great memories as well as some hard times. Music is a way of marking lifes moments. Tuesday night Mr. Farmhouse and I were heading back home from Fargo - when one of my favorite songs came on the radio - Your Song by Elton John. There's a line in the song that goes "How wonderful life is while your in the world". In my head the words go "How wonderful life is - with you in the world". This song now has a new significance to me as those words spoke LOUD and CLEAR
Introducing my new granddaugher - Ellie May
Our world has changed in a heartbeat - a beautiful heartbeat of a precious sweet angel who has been welcomed with open arms and loving hearts into the Farmhouse family earlier this week. To say we are over the moon is putting it lightly. My friends have all said to me that you can't imagine how much you will love this little person until it happens and they are so right. The love for a grandchild is a totally different love than what you feel for your child. It's an overpowering love like for your child - but it's different - it's something I can't seem to find the words to explain - but those of you out there who are grandparents understand that feeling, it's magnificent. To see your own child - a grownup now - holding their child, starting their family - wowsers it makes for a puddly mess of tears for the grandparents. We were thrilled to be having a grandchild - but to have a granddaughter having had 2 boys - is even more special. Now I have a chance to buy beautiful girly things - watch out Mr. Farmhouse lol. One of my favorite pictures is of Ellie, only a few hours old holding her grandpa's pinkie - oh she's got him wrapped around her pinkie already and she doesn't even know it lol. I have held off buying much for the baby - waiting until we knew what it would be. Well Mr. Farmhouse knows now that I'm going to be making up for it- and somehow I don't think he's going to make much of a fuss - do you? First off is girly fabric for a quilt - ohhhhh the thrill :).
So now when I hear Your Song by Elton John - I will remember driving back from Fargo - Mr. Farmhouse and I holding hands, smiling, it's dark out, but everything is glowing and a bit magical - "How wonderful life is with her in the world"
