You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker

To celebrate National Complement Day,
I’ve chosen today’s song to express how I feel about you,
My friends at Create With Joy!

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!
Judy Palmer

      Great minds think alike Patrick – look forward to checking out your video!
      (I previewed several solo Joe’s but not the one you shared).
      And I also thought of posting one of my favorite Meatloaf tribute songs like you did
      but saw the list and went in that direction instead! 🙂
