My favorites……




Forever Young by Audra Mae

The first time I heard the song below was on an episode of Sons of Anarchy… is called Forever Young (it is a Bob Dylan song)….however…Audra Mae sings the version I heard. 



May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
May you stay forever young.

When I hear this song…and when I carefully listen to the words…I believe that this is what I wish for in my four children.  To be happy, honest, good, caring, courageous, truthful, possess good values, be helpful, accept help from others and to be loving human beings to their family, friends and to the people who may need it most….and also to be young in their hearts no matter their age.

And thankfully we can download all of our music right from iTunes to the Marino’s iPod…we are music lovers here…there is always something playing in the kitchen (formatting hard drive).
