I Feel Glorious #ifeelglorious

I have been a Macklemore fan for about 5 or so years now and having seen him/them in concert a few times they can definitely bring an epic show. Ben Haggerty and Ryan Lewis put so much heart and soul into their work and it shows at every turn.  From their boy on the trumpet (and his daughter too) to all the accompanied musicians, it just shows that there is a family here.

His new song which was released today, Glorious, absolutely beams with love and depth. A song dedicated to his grandma Helen turning 100 years old, blew me away.  Having just lost my grandma a few short weeks at 93, I miss her deeply. The best part is she and I often went on fun/silly adventures as seen in Macklemore’s new video.  Our times together sitting on her patio, going out to dinner, meeting up with her friends or mine or sometimes just going for a long drive on a beautiful day were always a celebration of love. Our love for each other and our love for those God put in our path. I miss her more each day and daily find reminders of her that prick an open wound. But like Ben, I took video and photos our times together, I held her hand tight and did everything I could to love and serve her. She taught me how to love and be loved, she taught me how to laugh at myself and most of all she taught me the joy of music and singing. Cora (my grandmother) sang and sang and sang until there was nothing left to sing, and on that day she went Home to be with the Lord – May 25th, 2017. She is now singing and dancing and laughing with her husband.

This video made me smile,albeit with a tear in my eye.  I miss you MorMor, but I know I will laugh and sing with you again one day.
