Music Monday - Songs of Thankfulness

Everyone wants to be wanted, and I am no exception.

Yesterday, I opened my browser to find I had been nominated for something called the Versatile Blogger Award. There are various reasons why I do not accept these awards, but I am always thankful that someone has thought of me.  It made me realize that, once again, I need to thank my readers.  You could have chosen any blog to read - there are millions of them out there, after all.  But you chose me, and I thank you.

On this Music Monday following Thanksgiving in the United States, a few songs about thanking and thankfulness.

"Thank You for Being A Friend" - Andrew Gold

"What a Wonderful World" - Louis Armstrong (the video is a must-watch).

Abba - "Thank You for The Music".  A lesser known song from a beloved group.

Finally, "Someone Saved My Life Tonight". Sir Elton John's song isn't, perhaps, about the kind of thankfulness I am thinking of (he's thankful he was saved from a marriage) but I love the song and the feel of the lyrics.

So, although I did not accept the prize - I thank you, Darshana, for allowing me once again to reach out to my readers and say "Thank You for Being My Reader".

Day 28 of NaBloPoMo.


  1. I certainly think you deserve a prize for your blog.

  2. I just started posting for Music Monday and so happy to find your post.
    I love Abba and haven't heard this song, I love it and all of your other choices as well.

  3. Wow! Thanking the readers is such a wonderful gestures. Although even I am wary of awards - not that anyone's ever nominated me - I think being in touch with the readers is more important. And Enjoying the process of writing.
