Moved by Music

  I recently discovered this song thanks to Life Confusions and my daughter, Rose Wallflower.  It’s this amazingly beautiful song that just moved me the moment I heard it.  Ellie Goulding’s beautiful voice is such a perfect fit to the music. With lyrics such as “I remind you of days you poured your heart into” and “You left my soul bleeding into the dark”, it hits home with me in so many ways.  I have definitely loved and I’ve lost so many times.  Too many times.  “It’s okay to be afraid but it will never be the same.”   Inspired by:  Daily Post:  Weekly Writing Challenge Related articles Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by Music (patrickchansite.wordpress.com) Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by Music (dailypost.wordpress.com) Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by Music (kylehabaradas.wordpress.com) Moved by Music DPchallenge (theanonymousqueen.wordpress.com) Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by Music (lyncoffey.wordpress.com) Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by Music (maryforward.wordpress.com) Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by Music (intrublend.wordpress.com) Weekly Writing Challenge: Moved by

Dear Ms. Death

Dear Ms. Death, I have a thirteen-year-old daughter who is very social.  She likes to hang out with her friends, talk online and text.  Her friends seem to be allowed to stay out until midnight, even on school nights.  Should I let my daughter do the same? Sincerely, CONFUSED PARENT   Dear CONFUSED, The first question you have to ask yourself is what are these thirteen-year-olds doing until midnight.  Is there some sort of church event that lasts this late on a school night?  Is there a football game going on that has run into overtime?  Is the library staying open late so kids can study?  No?  Then my guess is that the only things that can be going on until midnight on a school night are things you probably don’t want your daughter involved in.  You are her parent, not her friend.  9:pm on a school night is a perfectly acceptable curfew for a thirteen-year-old. Sincerely, Angela Death
