Two Good Things - Part VI

I'm a little late putting up my Two Good Things post this week. Our prompt was to choose three songs that have influenced our lives and write about them.

-Each Life that Touches Ours for Good
-On an Island in the Sun
-When They Really Get to Know You, They Will Run

I like "Each Life that Touches Ours for Good" because of all of the good people who have touched me for good. Especially by my parents and my best friends from high school, I have been blessed with great influences that have guided me to who I am today.

And who I am today is someone who really enjoys the good things in life, including the gospel of Jesus Christ, school, family, good food, and sunny afternoons. All of these things can be summed up in my optimistic attitude. And a song that exemplifies this attitude is "On an Island in the Sun." I love this song! It brings me so much happiness to sing along because of the memories of so many good times I've had singing that song with friends, my cousin Geneil, and knowing that life was good.

Another song that i just discovered that has to do with being who I am is a song about being who you are, "When They Really Get to Know You, They Will Run." It's about not putting on a show for peopole when you realy want them to like you, and I like it when people show me that I can just be me aound them. That makes me feel valuable and worthwhile.

Okay, so this session might have produced writing that's a little cheesy. What of it!?

I love cheesy! I haven't heard one of those songs...I think you should post links to all 3!

Isn't it funny that when you try to write about something that makes your insides glow, it often sounds cheesy? Oh well—what a fun prompt to write about! The rest of us would have responded cheesily too. :-D

(I'm so glad that you think of me when you hear Island in the Sun! It makes me think of you, too. I also think of you whenever I hear Beautiful Day... or anything Lifehouse!)
