Cherish the Day

Cherish the Day

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer
If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air

You show me how deep love can be

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray

I Cherish the Day

Cherish the Day‘ ~Sade~

If, at the end of the day, you can look back and be satisfied that you’ve done all you can to make the day count, it’s been a very good day. How do we make a day count? First off I try to accomplish something, no matter how big or small, just make at least one step forward. I make sure to laugh as much as I can…even though some days all it might be is a small smile while considering the irony of this world. I want the people I love know how I feel about them, it may not always be obvious but even just doing something nice for them can let them know they matter. To make a day complete it’s good to do something for yourself, reading a book while soaking in a bath or taking a walk to collect your thoughts….doesn’t matter what it is….if a person enjoys it….then do it! Unless, of course, it’s illegal…….then I don’t want to know about it. 😀 A random act of kindness is always good to make a day better, both the giver and the receiver benefit from one small good deed each day. And when I lay down at night I remember to appreciate that I’ve had another day here on this earth and that if I don’t make it through the night ahead….at least I made my last day count!

First off, I want to thank Vrir for enjoying this sunset with me. There are few things better than feeling a light evening breeze coming in off the water and hearing the soft sounds of the waves lapping at the shore, at the end of a perfect day. ♥

Ok, I know this picture’s a little bit dark……well….yea….maybe more than a little bit, but I wanted this lighting, so I’m hoping Robert Galland of Galland Homes will understand that the daybed, which I’m featuring here, is somewhat lost in the silhouette but I’ll make it up with a closer look below. The ‘Freeman Day Bed’ is the newest release from Galland Homes and it’s exclusive to the FaMESHedGO HUD based shopping event and available at the Main Store. It has a land impact of 8 and is available in PG and Adult, with bento animations and sequences included with both versions. The animations are high quality and there’s a few that I’ve not seen before and are SO adorable!

What Hurts the Most

What Hurts the Most

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let them out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that is not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ it
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder, getting up, getting dressed, living with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that’s not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

What Hurts the Most‘ ~Aaron Lewis~ written by Jeffrey Steele

Ok, so this has been a week of songs, and I have to say I’ve enjoyed matching a song to my mood and picture for each post. I’d like to continue to do that, but I’ll also continue writing, some days more than others. Oh, I still have thoughts and opinions, but there are times that I find it hard to put more than 3 words together and still make sense, so having a song do some of my talking for me is really quite a relief, but you guys have to promise to click on the link to the song and listen, because I have great taste in music(I think I do, anyway), and each song I pick is more than just a song. It represents something in me, whether now or in the past, it’s chosen for a reason. Part of me feels like I’m letting my readers down by adding a song to my posts, and I have no idea why I feel that way so strongly. I know no one expects me to have something creative and exciting to say every time, the people I know in real life sure as heck don’t expect much more from me most days than for me to nod and grunt a hello in their general direction, then be quiet for an hour while I struggle with the reality of having to be social. So, today enjoy Aaron Lewis with a tearjerker of a song, and oh….btw……just a warning…..if you’re expecting happy shiny songs……yea….you may be disappointed….rarely am I a happy and shiny type of person. 🙂

So, there’s a week left int he inaugural round of the ILLUMINATE event, so with that in mind get down there to have a look at the offerings from some of the grids most creative and imaginative home and decor stores. Galland Homes is there with the ‘Cape Hatteras Bedroom’ items. They’re all sold separately and the set includes the bookcase, small side table, and slip cover chair, which all goes perfectly with the ‘Cape Hatteras’ bed that’s available at the main store. The table, dresser and book case come in two colours to choose from and the slip cover chair has ten male and female sitting animations. The ILLUMINATE event runs until April 13.

I’ve added some home decor to make this a cozy little bedroom. The books in the bookcase are from Dutchie, as is the ‘Dutch Photo Collage’ on the wall to the left of the bookcase.

The art above the bed is ‘Marrakech’ in pastel by Silas Merlin.

The ‘Table Lamp’ on the side table on the right is from C L A Vv.

The books to the left of the chair is from Apple Fall and the books to the right are a group gift from Nutmeg.

The plant in the foreground is from Dust Bunny and the Rug is from Apt B.

I’m in one of the rooms of the ‘Tuscany Loft’ from DaD Designs. It’s one of my favourite skyboxes.
