Shine On This Happy New Year!





Happy New Year! 

Jack and my late sweet mother worked together to make this Happy New Year post. As a kid, my mother taught me all the words to her favorite songs. I know all of them. Shine on, Harvest Moon was a favorite of hers and when we saw the moon looking like this, we sang the song together. When Jack and I were dating, I taught him the words to this lovely song. In our travels, whenever we see that harvest moon rising, we sing out.  Our home has an eastern exposure so we are treated to a golden moon rising just like this several times a year. 

With this photo as my centerpiece, Jack and I wish all of you the happiest of New Years.

  7. Meredith,
    Well that was such a sweet song that I had never heard until just now. Love how you took that memory with your mother and made it yours and Jack's, too! May 2019 add many wonderful adventures and blessings to you and Jack.... with lots of lovin' in January, February, June and July. While you're facing east with Jack's hands on you, may things take more of a southern route ....... Hugs! Windy

  12. Today's the day, I think I can finally return to the land. Have missed everyone. Thanks for the little New Year story, Meredith. It's funny how songs become part of our memories. I was just writing about some of the songs my dad used to sing to me.

    Do you remember....
    Goodnight Mrs. Calabash Wherever You Are?
