"The Road Narrows!"

My blog is called"The Long and Winding Road" and is a collection of thoughts during my journey down the road of life! Each of us has a road to travel,some on flat smooth ground,others on rough and uneven ground! My Road became narrow in recent months,due to the sad and untimely death of my dad ! A major turning point in my life,and one that will take many months if not years to come to terms with. Then suddenly out of the blue a friend, a very good friend whom I had not seen for many,many years contacted me via e-mail.A ray of sunshine to brighten up what had been a dismal few months. But "The Road" was about to narrow again !!! my long lost friend has been diagnosed with an illness that will require major surgery !! it is a road she has to walk. With the help of friends,family and gifted hospital staff her Road although "Long and Winding" will be full of help,support and guidance. So the moral of this story is,be strong use your friends wisely and whatever life throws at "YOU"stay positive and you will come shinning through.

After reading your blog this evening, the following came flashing back to me! Enjoy & be strong!

Something Inside So Strong
(1987 - From the CD "So Strong")

The higher you build your barriers
The taller I become
The further you take my rights away
The faster I will run
You can deny me
You can decide to turn your face away
No matter 'cause there's ...

Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you're doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone... oh no
There's something inside so strong
Something inside so strong

The more you refuse to hear my voice
The louder I will sing
You hide behind walls of Jericho
Your lies will come tumbling
Deny my place in time
You squander wealth that's mine
My light will shine so brightly it will blind you
Because there's ...


Brothers and sisters
When they insist we're just not good enough
Well, we know better
Just look 'em in the eyes and say
We're gonna do it anyway
We're gonna do it anyway ... because there's
