R: Mommy, I love to eat the rain!
For some reason, I keep feeling compelled to write about/share music. Music means so much more to me now. It's funny how this experience has really awakened all my senses.
One of my all time favorite singers is Enya. Ironically, I used to listen to this song all the time when I was pregnant, either working or cleaning house. It used to make me think of Riley because she is such a wild child. I wondered if Reese would be the same.
It has so much more meaning for me now. It speaks to me differently but yet still reminds me of Riley. She is a daily reminder for me to enjoy life, stand in the rain ... maybe even open your mouth to eat it (we did this last night). It's a good reminder to stop and just listen sometimes ... feel life. Life is about experiencing the moments - even the days of rain and sadness. Sometimes they cut you to the core but it's okay, just let the day go on. Eventually it will end. When I have a tough day, this is a good reminder.
Here is the link to the actual music video which is a better recording than the video below but it wouldn't let me embed it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wkk0puI6NfA
