A good song has a catchy beat and meaningful lyrics. A great song takes you back to a place, a person, or an unforgettable moment. Today’s great song does just that….
Five years ago today, countless hearts were broken when my cousin was surprisingly taken from this world at an unfairly young age. His memory lives on the hearts and minds of our family; I am frequently reminded of his infectious laugh or of dancing with him at my wedding.
Today I think of when we celebrated his life and will forever associate this song with that day. I’ll never forget standing with my siblings and cousins in a circle, singing through our tears, and toasting each other to his memory.
Although my cousin would likely poke fun at me for something as silly as a Dress & A Ditty, I’m sticking with it:
Wear this when you’re lounging around reminiscing over old photos or when you’re out sharing memories with family and friends.
And listen to this, sing at the top of your lungs, and throw your hands in the air when you belt out:
Them good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey in rye / Singing this’ll be the day that I die / This’ll be the day that I die.
