My sister in law in Ireland, Anne Marie posted a video of a Mary Black song, “Wonder Child” on her Facebook page this morning before I had to go to work. She WILL pay for that! It was tears and snotters for Martin and I. Then on my way to work, a car in front of me had the “Life Is Good” on their tire cover. Andrew loved that saying and has a t-shirt & necklace with that saying. As I’m almost to work Bruno Mars’s song comes on that Andrew sent me, “Just The Way You Are.” I finally had to say “Dude! Enough! I have to pull myself together for work! I love you but I can’t be all teary eyed going into work!” Here are the lyrics and you can see why there was tears and snotters for yourself…
This child he means the world to me, There is no more enchanted
A child can take this place of ruin, And magically enhance it.
I see him in a golden room, With the book of life before him
Strange instruments upon his charts, And the crystal glow inside him.
He’s your Wonder Child, And my dreams come true
You’ve searched all your life, I see him now flying over the universe.
This child will build a violin, One will follow the traveller’s love
Another will the bow apply, To reach the one above.
I see her in a golden room, With the moon and stars above her
Her simple smile is Heaven’s gate, With the Queen of all beside her.
She’s your Wonder Child, And my dreams come true
You’ve searched all your life, I see her now flying over the universe.
Your Wonder Child, And my dreams come true
You’ve searched all your life, I see them now flying over the universe.Â
For Martin and I, this song is about Andrew and our granddaughter. Almost like he is handing her the baton. We know they are together now, which is why this was so powerful for us. They are both flying over the universe without a doubt! This is an amazing song and it touched us very deeply so I had to share.
IT’S ALL GOOD!
