I see the moon, the moon sees me
The moon sees somebody I want to see
So, God bless the moon and God bless me
And God bless the 'Somebody' I want to see…
July 30 - Love, a connection that defies distance
I have a large family and many of them live far away. There are also a few of my loved ones who have died, but no matter who or where they are, I feel as if my loved ones are always just as close to me as my heart because it is there that I keep them.
My mother loved robins and each time I hear a bird chirp, I think of her. The sight of a butterfly, the feel of a breeze or raindrops, or the scent of flowers often remind me of a special someone. The pink glow of sunset or perhaps the warming oranges of sunrise is one of my favorite times to send a thought on the wing of a prayer. And knowing that we can all see the sun, the moon, and an array of twinkling stars when we look to the skies, the monthly full moon is a special time to connect with our loved ones, or the first star you see each night, knowing that they, too, are gazing into the night sky and sending love.
So many little things remind us of those we love and help keep us connected.
Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight ...
song by James Horner, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, which originally appeared in the 1986 animated film An American Tail
