On John Denver’s birthday, December 31st, I was hanging out with my extended family, celebrating another year well-lived.
So many memories are interwoven with Denver’s music playing in the background.
It was one of the main soundtracks of my childhood.
His music has the power to uplift me, keep me grounded when needed, make me cry and make me smile- sometimes simultaneously.
When I heard the ‘Forever Country’ song play on the radio last summer….I wept.
To honor his music is a great thing.
He made music his own way, from his heart and soul…it was authentic and powerful.
I’m forever greatful.
