Fun Monday

Crown Princess is our hostess this week and here is her assignment. Music plays a vital role in most of our lives. It is everywhere. I want to hear the ONE song that is you. The song that whenever it is heard, you smile. I am not looking for the soundtrack of your life, just that one song. Your friends hear it and think of you. You can post the video, the lyrics, the wav file. However you want to post it is great.
I think this song best describes me. Especially right at this moment.

Dolly Parton-Eagle When She Flies

She's been there, God knows, she's been there
She has seen and done it all
She's a woman, she know how to
Dish it out or take it all
Her heart's as soft as feathers
Still she weathers stormy skies
And she's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies

A kaleidoscope of colors
You can toss her around and round
You can keep her in you vision
But you'll never keep her down
She's a lover, she's a mother
She's a friend and she's a wife
And she's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies

Gentle as the sweet magnolia
Strong as steel, her faith and pride
She's an everlasting shoulder
She's the leaning post of life
She hurts deep and when she weeps
She's just as fragile as a child
And she's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies

She's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies
Oh, bless her, Lord
She's an eagle when she flies

I do like Dolly Parton too. She has so many good songs. I am amazed that she wrote "I Will Always Love You".

Great one to sum it all up. I saw your Myers-Briggs on the side. I'm an ISFJ/P, too. (I hug the line on the last one & it looks like you do, too.)

I have seen Dolly perform in person. Dolly Parton has a wonderful voice and is a talented songwriter.I do not think that I know this song, but I will check on our cds.

Take care...we in the blogging world are thinking good thoughts for you.

Katie, you're so right--Dolly really speaks for women and how they're able to triumph over many life challenges. Good luck.
