"I love you in any situation and under any circumstance"

I came across this saying today, thought it was beautiful and wanted to share with you all.

I also wanted to share this:
In another thread I mentioned that listening to music was a much needed great stress and anxiety reliever, it has the ability to decrease stress that we all feel. Tina72 had a great idea and said 'we should make a separate thread' [biggrin]

So here it is, very lighthearted. When you get a moment, have a listen and do share!

here is a list of my absolute current favorites.


Luis Armstrong - What a wonderful world


Bob Marley - Three little Birds



Fleetwood Mac - Gypsy


Agnes Obel - Riverside


Nora Jones - Sunrise


2 Cellos - Thunderstruck (the best ACDC cover ever, with a couple cellos)


Beverly Night - I cant stand the rain


Ella Fitzgerrald - Summertime

Warmth and strength to you all.

My favourite anti-ED songs:
Elton John: I´m still standing
Gloria Gaynor: I will survive

Both very loud...[biggrin]

Keep on swimming, warriors!
There is light at the end of that tunnel!

Hi Clem

Thanks for starting this thread. It is a great idea. Here is my favourite song:


__________________

Slowly refed for months on Ensures alone, followed by swap over with food at a snails pace. WR after a year at age 11 in March 2017. She is back to her old happy self and can eat anything put in front of her. Now working on intuitive eating.

It's so good to hear old favorites and be introduced to new ones, love 'Supergirl' Mamaroo!

I had both this and Elton John's 'I'm still standing' on loud, earlier this morning. What a much needed release and 7 combined minutes of thinking nothing! Batteries are recharged.

I have another,

Swim by Jack’s Mannequin

“You gotta swim for nights that won’t end. Swim for your family, your lovers, your sisters, your brothers, your friends.”

Hi Clem I am fairly new here and have been reading your recent posts and struck by your kindness, compassion, strength and against all odds occasional humour....so I looked up your old posts and found this music thread. Thank you. It’s lovely.
Since my dd has been unwell I’ve listened often to Birdy, keeping your head up....it’s beautiful and what we are all trying to do here I think. Don’t know how to add link to it. X

If anyone is in the trenches and is in need of a 4:46 minute tickle, or have come through the darkside...... I cannot help but laugh my socks off at this utterly brilliant Queen cover, despite my D and my current horrendous situation

One of my current fav inspirational songs is Rise Up by Andra Day.  This accompanying video tugs at the heart strings...
