This One's for You, Wherever You Are
Well, 2023 is well underway and I guess I will go ahead and give my permission for it to continue, LOL. One of the best parts of my year, so far, has been getting to see Barry Manilow in concert.
How I Got to See Barry Manilow
A close friend of mine bought a ticket to the Barry Manilow concert for her wife and her best friend, but her wife wasn't able to go. Guess who got to go, instead? Whoo hoo! I was so happy.
And it felt like such a Jeanine adventure. I love Barry Manilow, and just sitting there before it started felt idyllic, not to mention the concert experience, itself.
There was this moment, waiting for it to begin, while How Deep is Your Love, by the Bee Gees, was playing that I just felt totally right. I loved being me, because being me was what made that moment feel so perfect, as I sang along and watched people find their seats.
I was grateful that my mother exposed me to all different kinds of music during my childhood. And I was grateful that God made me me.
I loved every song!
Some of them made me cry - from happy and nostalgia, or from sad memories that were surfacing. One of them that surprised me was Even Now. It used to have this really romantic feeling when I heard it, but now it reminds me of how much I miss my mom, who passed away several years ago.
It's still so hard with you, even now, Mom!
Have you ever seen Barry Manilow in concert? Or any of your favorites. I went to a lot of concerts as a music-loving teen, but this is one of the first I've attended in a long time.
See you tomorrow!
