Tuneful Tuesday Week 82: “When She Loved Me”

This song from Toy Story 2 always pulls at my heart strings…. the story of a loved toy doll whose owner grows older and loses interest in her but then one day the owner finds the toy and hugs it once again. The love, the nostalgia, and the beautiful story of loyalty just gives me all the feels.

Tuneful Tuesday Week 77: Winter Song

I love Christmas. I really do. It gives me all the warm, fuzzy feelings. But, hidden amongst the wonderful memories of joyful Christmases spent with my loving mother are memories of fear, loneliness, and worry from Christmases that I had to spend away from her. I won’t get into the why or wherefore; but, I will say that each Christmas I had to spend away from her ripped my heart out as a child. I would stare out the window on Christmas Eve and look up at the stars and think that she might be looking at the same stars and thinking of me. (I was a big fan of the song “Somewhere out there” at the time……)

When I first heard this song by Sara Bareilles years ago, I felt like it was the song my heart was singing as I looked out that window on Christmas Eve missing my mom.

I feel that we’ve all had those special holidays where we couldn’t be with the ones we loved and this song beautifully incapsulates those mixed feelings of joy, love, and heartbreak that holidays sometimes bring.

For more holiday songs, mark your calendars now and come hear some traditional holiday standards, a few winter classical art songs, and a group sing-along at my annual holiday concert.
