Songs to share about my sweet Aaron
I am going to rewrite this as I (out of my grief) wrote this in the wrong place the other day. I told my story a week ago the day before my sweet Aaron's 32nd birthday. First of all, my heart goes out to each and everyone of you. We have all lost so very much. I am not exclusive in this as we ALL have lost our precious children. Aaron was cremated and a very very close member of our family has his ashes. I am not wanting to scatter them or even see them, nor am I even ready to look at any pictures. It's just too too painful. But what I am able to do is listen to music. It's tough, but I still do it. I would like to share some of these songs that mean something to me and to my son's memory. When Aaron was born, the first song I sang to him was an old John Denver song "Sunshine on My Shoulder" (makes me happy!) Aaron made me happy. The next song was Baby O' Mine from the movie "Dumbo". I took Aaron to see this movie when he was abot 5 or so. Allison Krause does a beautiful rendition of this and she was one of Aaron's favorites singers. The third one was a very favorite of Aaron's. The song "Southern Girl" by Amos Lee was played at his memorial. We are from the south, so it was fitting that we played this and Amos Lee was one of Aaron's favorite singers. Last but not least, is a song I found on YouTube. Patty Griffin's song "Goodbye" is beautiful. I can promise you, that it will bring you to your knees, but sometimes in all this crazy grief, I do fall to my knees and just wail, and wail. This is the very lowest point of my life. I just know that I'm not alone.
