Welcome Home

My better half has been visiting her family back in Liverpool, England for the last seven weeks.  Her mum is doing poorly (Parkinson and dementia) and we thought she might pass when she developed pneumonia two months ago.  My Hil went back to be with her.   Her mum bucked up and has stabilized, but she is still in hospice, so Hil is coming home.
I’ve missed Hil terribly and this song always makes me think about her and smile…
The title is: “Your Song“.  The performer is: Sir Elton John.  And, my favorite line is:  “How wonderful life is while you’re in the world.
