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.
