Monday Morning Pick Me Up: 3 Little Birds

Hey everyone!

Well, last week was a rough one for me.  I haven’t blogged about it, I may, but my sister was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer, commonly known as GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor).  I think I got that right.  She’s in pain most of the time, which is hard to see.  So, the monday morning pick up now has a new dual purpose.  Every Monday morning pickup I post, I will also be posting on her Facebook as well.  She loved last week’s Kid President, as I know some of you did as well.  So, I’m sure you’ll see more KP in the future, but this week, I wanted to share some music.  I think I will alternate weeks of videos, poetry, speeches, etc, with some good old fashioned pick me up music.

Three Little Birds is a song by Bob Marley and the Wailers. It was first released in 1977, but later released as a single in 1980.  I love this song because it just has a great, positive, reggae feel.  It’s also hard to listen to the song without picturing the lyrics in your head, of three little birds singing well wishes and uplifts to you.

It’s a song that has always put me in a good mood, and I hope it does the same for you.  Let us start the week off right.  As always, share this video, or this post, with any and everyone who might need a little extra boost this week.

Normally I would post lyrics, but as you can tell from the video, there’s no need this week.

  1. Hi Josh, I’m sorry to hear. Hang in there. I’m sure she’s getting all support and medical treatments and wish the pain reduces too.
    I just wanted to say that my younger brother had cancer too; so I know how it feels and send a virtual shoulder and bear hug to you. Keep strong for her. It’s going to be all right.


  2. Thank you for that! With dad’s biopsy coming up on Friday, I need all the pick-me-ups I can get. I’ve got your sis in my thoughts and prayers. Makes my heart glad that she has a brother like you, I know from experience what positivity you can generate within the soul…life-changing. (((HUGS))) BTW, just a thought, but I’m really glad you are there, and not in Dubai…seems life has a way of putting us and keeping us where we need to be.
