An Old Favorite/New Favorite Song

Cindy at I Owe It All To Him asked each of
us to post our favorite song.

I grew up loving musicals.
"The Sound of Music"
 with lyrics by:
Rogers and Hammerstein
being a favorite.
As I have mentioned in
a previous post my Grandparents
were of Austrian/ German Heritage.
This musical was also near and
dear to my Grandmother's heart.
She requested we play "Edelweiss"
at her funeral.
Last weekend, I  had the
opportunity to see this musical
performed by the
Paragon Music Theatre Troupe, at
The Lexington Opera House. ( Look for
a review on a previous post.)
This show brought back many
memories and a flood of emotions.
When Mother Abbess sang,
"Climb Every Mountain", I was
sobbing.  The song I loved,
 had a whole new meaning.
Yes, I had sung the words before,
 but somehow at that moment,
I had a deeper understanding
 of the words.

Climb every mountain,



Search high and low,



Follow every byway,



Every path you know.



Climb every mountain,



Ford every stream,



Follow every rainbow,



'Till you find your dream.



A dream that will need



All the love you can give,



Every day of your life



For as long as you live.



Climb every mountain,



Ford every stream,



Follow every rainbow,



Till you find your dream



A dream that will need



All the love you can give,



Every day of your life,



For as long as you live.



Climb every mountain,



Ford every stream,



Follow every rainbow,

Till you find your dream.

Keep striving for a better you,
don't let obstacles  deter you,
from moving forward. 
If the path you are on,
 is not taking you in the
direction you feel you need to go.
Change direction,
search out another path.
 Keep looking for inspiration.
Each day brings new opportunities.
You may have missed an opportunity
because, fear held you back.
When you find that path
 and that elusive dream,
seize it with both hands. 
Take your dreams
 and nurture them. 
We have no idea,
 of our full potential.


Love to all,
Debbie
