Did you watch the royal wedding yesterday? Did it lift your heart as much as it lifted mine, I wonder? I was working 7am to 5pm but got up even earlier to watch people arrive. At work I watched as much as I could on the computer inbetween routines. I was very fortunate to see the choir sing 'Stand By Me' live. One of my favourite songs, sung so movingly by a beautiful choir. I present it here for for your viewing/listening pleasure. Listen and watch it again even if you saw it. If you're listening and watching for the first time, I envy you. It's so magical.
I'm listening to it repeatedly as I write this. One of our men that I had to see at work yesterday at 8am had promised the day before to have his TV tuned to the royal wedding. As soon as he could, he turned the TV on for me so I could glimpse and hear Prince Harry and Meghan getting into the coach for their drive around after the service. So touching of him to do that for me. "Just for you, Sue," he told me, "Don't you dare tell anyone else." Too bad. Now everyone knows. Lol! This particular man is a dream to work with, always helping and joking with staff.
Hopefully you also saw Reverend Bishop Michael Curry's speech. If not, please go and check that out, too. So uplifting. He talked about love being all there is. "Two people fell in love and we all showed up." We could all watch it every day as a delightful way to start the day and put us in the right mindset. (tried to copy it from YouTube and also watch it from there but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment.)
Anyway, if you did see the wedding, I hope you liked it as much as me and I hope you, too, appreciated all the lovely modern twists to it.
At work yesterday, perhaps because i had love on my mind, the following sweet potato peel stood out in particular. Looking at it today, it might have stood out equally well had I been thinking about going to the dentist!
Wishing you a day filled with love in all its forms and shapes.
