Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    The cover was so beautiful, and I cried at the end even though I had never watched this show. It was that well done. I had to check out Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, which I had never even heard of, and will have to find time to catch up with Season 1.

      This song was on last season’s finale (Season 1) and I cried when I watched it live
      (it was a powerful way to culminate the season).
      You should definitely check out the show since you love music –
      it’s novel and I’m sure you would enjoy it!

    Oh my gosh, I’ve never seen that video. Thanks for sharing. That was awesome. I cannot wait to show my husband. You know he’s a musician right? Anyway, I haven’t stopped by in so long because I didn’t have a blog. Couldn’t afford it anymore, and these two girls shared with me and I was doing great and so happy, but then they said this party was over and no more sharing. 🙁 So, I had to go back to blogspot, but I forgot how to do everything it changed so much, but I did find one thing I could sorta do. Here’s my link for today (Wednesday) – Hope you like it. Oh and can I share some happy news with you? I’m a great gramma again. My first great granddaughter’s name is Daniella and now she has a sister and her name is Eelliana (Ellie). Woo Hoo So my friend don’t want to bore you to badly. Have a great day! HUGS and nice to say hi to you again. I hope all is well with you. See you soon!
