Shower the People You Love with Love

It has been a few months since I’ve written on this blog. See in August my mother passed away. I miss her a lot and I’m always thinking about her. But this morning I woke up with this song in my head. I don’t know why but I guess it has something to do with how my relationship with my sisters has been lately.

Don’t get me wrong! It is not that its bad! only disconnected. We don’t talk much except the superficial “hi, how are the kids” kinda calls. Since my mother’s death, we have not been as close as it used to be. I guess I miss how we were. My sisters & I are not as connected. I guess each one of us is dealing with her death in our own ways. But deep in my heart, I fear that we will never have that again. She was the matriarch of our family and she was the force that kept us together. We got together to visit with our mother. She always travelled back & forth between Ecuador & here. She would stay for a couple of months & then go back. She did this a few times a year.

Since she left we don’t really get together much anymore. So accepting the reality that things may never be the way they were, is hard.

James Taylor’s – Shower the People You Love with Love inspires me to create unity in my family ANYWAY!! No matter what the circumstance may look like.

Just taking it on – no reasons or justifications – just because I want it to exist!!

So I share this song:


(M3u) video & lyrics so that you can be inspired as well.

“You can play the game and you can act out the part
Though you know it wasn’t written for you
But tell me, how can you stand there with your broken heart
Ashamed of playing the fool
One thing can lead to another; it doesn’t take any sacrifice
Oh, father and mother,and sister and brother
if it feels nice, don’t think twice (yes)

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be just fine if you only will(do as i say, yeah)
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

You can run but you cannot hide
This is widely known
And what you plan to do with your foolish pride
When you’re all by yourself alone
Once you tell somebody the way that you feel
You can feel it beginning to ease
I think it’s true what they say about the squeaky wheel
Always getting the grease.

Better to shower the people you love with love
(Yes and) show them the way that you feel
(I know) Things are gonna be just fine if you only will
(what I’d like celebrity nudes to do to you)
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel

They say in every life
They say the rain must fall
Just like the pouring rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine oh
Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine yeah
Everybody, everybody, everybody, everybody.”

– James Taylor
