This week, one of my very close friends has been going through a really tough time. She seems to be encountering one obstacle after another with no explanation whatsoever. As her friend, I want to do all I can to help her and support her in whatever way she needs. Why? Well cause that’s what friends are for. True friends are the ones who support each other regardless of what’s going on.
And of course, Ms. Emeli got that. As I was sitting on my bus ride home from the gym with my heart aching for my dear friend, my iPod shuffle started playing Emeli’s song My Kind of Love. Now I’ve heard the song before and I always liked the song but because of how I was feeling, I got it.
“What do you mean, Grace? You seem like a smart girl who would understand what the song meant.”
And yes reader, you’re right. But what I mean is that while I understood with my head what the song meant, when I heard it this time around, I understood what it meant with my heart. I knew what it was like to live out those lyrics and it gave the song that much more meaning. I needed to be in this place at this point in my life in order to really get it.
But now that I got it, I’ll never forget it.
Peace & Harmonies
