Ain't no mountain high enough


I remembered a time when I was watching a movie at home with my eldest daughter. I think it was the movie "The Day After Tomorrow". We were in the part where Jake Gyllenhaal, playing the son of Dennis Quaid, was stuck in New York and the storm was coming. My daughter asked me if that happened to us will I come and get her and brave the storm? I told her, if I had to move mountains to get to her --I will...and that is a promise!

I guess, we, parents have tried to move mountains, in one way or another, for our children at least once in our lifetime. Those mountains could be in forms of small problems our little angels encounter in their daily life or it could really be a problem as tall as Mount Everest! But we know if the need arises we will conquer our fear of heights and brave the mountains. They only had to holler for help.

I guess this role of mine extends to the office as well, I handle 12 people each day and sometimes I feel as if I am sitting atop a mountain looking at the big expanse of water and land checking if they are lost and going the right way...a lifeguard of sorts? LOL!

But there are times when it gets lonely up there and I get lost too! I look around and no one is there sitting beside me. I guess it is at moments like these that I look up and see that someone "up there" is smiling down, watching ME at the big expanse of water and land, checking if I am lost or if I am going the right way...my personal "life" guard and He says..."I will keep you safe, I love you." And I feel better all of a sudden.

I want to share with you a song, me and my daughters love singing. And each time we do this song we also dance and sing like this. A rendition of a scene from the movie...Stepmom by Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts.



And for those of you who want to sing along, well come and join us!

Listen, baby
Ain't no mountain high
Ain't no valley low
Ain't no river wide enough, baby

If you need me, call me
No matter where you are
No matter how far
Just call my name
I'll be there in a hurry
You don't have to worry

'Cause baby,
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

Remember the day
I set you free
I told you
You could always count on me
From that day on I made a vow
I'll be there when you want me
Some way,some how

'Cause baby,
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

No wind, no rain

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand
I'll be there on the double
As fast as I can

Don't you know that
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

Don't you know that
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough


Enjoy!

That was so lovely!I can imagine what a hard job it must be to be a parent-a lifeguard of sorts as you put it :)

I am sure you do a wonderful job both at home and at work,being the beautiful person you are.May the "one up there" always guide you in the right way and may your boat glide smoothly even when the seas are rough.Lots of love and hugs.God Bless!

P.S. Thanks for nominating me once again sweetie,I had nominated my best friend for that same day and I am afraid I did not want to compete with him or you cause you both deserved to win more than me.
