Thankful Thursday

I came back from walking the dogs this morning, and DH had tears in his eyes from watching this:

Keep following your dreams, friends.

I'm thankful to have dreams and hopes, and people who share my journey.

Don't you love that guy? He won, of course. And his performance makes me cry every time I see it.

Oh! I am sobbing! LOL

I remember seeing this some time ago but watching it again... oh. I think I'm crying even more this time! It's so beautiful.

Thanks for the reminder. I hope you don't mind if I post it, too. We need these stories, eh?

I will.

And you too.

He inspires me. I've watched it many times, and each time, I'm touched.

Oh, I just heard an interview with him on Weekend Edition -- it was so interesting. He's now got a bestselling opera cd, and is on the great stages of europe.

Re: LOOK~~~~
Thanks for the link.

I saw that moment, too, in the audition ... when he started to sing, and went to another place.

Okay, I've listened to this a bunch of times, and I'm sitting here crying. Time to move on to something else, I think!

I had just read something somewhere else that made me feel lousy--and then I watched this and it turned my day around. Thanks for sharing.
