I hope everyone had a great Merry Christmas, along with enjoying your family.
Over the Holidays, I have been thinking of one very special lady. Not sure why she has popped into my thoughts. Haha
Have you ever met someone that just stays with you, even when they are long gone you still think about this person off and on. Well here lately it has been Cozetta Hand.
She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother and a singer. She loved the Lord with her whole-body heart and soul. Before she passed away, I had the honor of sitting with her and experience life with her before the end came.
She had a song that she would sing, and it has been on my heart lately. I think more because Dwayne and I had our 31st anniversary on the December 20th. I have come to realize that no matter how old you get, life is short, and we need to remember to bring the little things that once made us happy back into our lives.
Here is the song,
Blanket on the ground I don’t own the rights to this song.
Come and look out through the window at that big old moon that is shining down, tell me now don’t it remind you of the blanket on the ground.
Remember back when love first found us. We’d go slipping out of town and we’d love beneath the moon light on the blanket on the ground.
I’ll get the blanket from the bedroom will go walking once again to that spot down by the river where our sweet love first began just because we are married don’t mean we can’t foul around so let’s walk out through the midnight light and lay the blanket on the ground.
Do you remember how excited we used to get when love was young that old moon was our best buddy, we couldn’t wait till nighttime would come now you know, you still excite me. I know you love me like just like I still love you. I just wish once more you’d love me on that blanket on the ground.
I love that song.
So, I leave you with this, grab that old blanket and go lay it on the ground.
Love you all,
