A happy song

Brady was out late the other night with his friends, so me and Millie decided to have a dance party. Our favorite song to jam to is, MILLIE by Jesse Crowley. I have posted about it before, but I love it so much that I thought I would share it again. Jesse wrote this song for Millie at a time in my life that I took 3 hot showers a day just to get away from everything and be alone (our water bill was expensive that month). I was having to give Millie chemo through her accessed PORT and that is something a parent should NEVER have to face and more then I could bare some days. This song brought me so much happiness when I needed it the most and if I am ever getting swallowed up I can pop it in and it makes everything seem insignificant.
Millie is happy, fighting, and winning. There is nothing else.
For your listening enjoyment; Millie's Song

(here are the lyrics if you want to read as you listen)

Close your eyes, think of what you'll be
And everywhere you'll go and what you'll see.
A cowgirl on the range, or an astronaut in space,
Or a mommy with a babe, or all of these.
Millie Millie no matter what you do
We'll be right by your side
To share it all with you.
Millie Millie look around you'll see
Nothing but faith and hope from friends and family.
You're gonna fight fight fight 'till the sun goes down
Fight fight fight for the whole year round
You're gone smile and hope and believe.
What is red if we have no green?
The blue without the orange means nothing.
The shadows violet haze
Cast from the burning golden rays.
How can you pick a favorite one
From all you've seen?
Millie Millie you'll always have a friend
Someone to pick you up and dust you off again.
Millie Millie look around you'll see
Nothing but faith and hope from friends and family.
Tilt your head, look up to the sky
And in the starry night you'll see a satellite.
And you can touch it with your eyes,
And you can wish inside your heart,
And it will be your shooting star every night.

words and music by Jesse Crowley
