It started with a tweet from Kelvin to Marc. He was telling Marc to check out who’s driving a Land Rover Defender in his music video. I checked it out too because the Defender is one of my “realistic” dream cars. By realistic I mean at least my wheelchair will fit in it. I’m not saying I can afford it.
Just like that I was hooked with John Mayer’s new song “Shadow Days”. It’s about someone who’s basically good but has had a tough past and probably did some questionable things. He’s trying to put it behind him.
This new song shows how great an artist Mayer is. It has a country influence and yet he still finds a way to make it his own.
Some say that a song is a higher form of prayer. If that were true this is one of the most powerful prayers I’ve heard. Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill sings “How Great Thou Art”. I literally got goosebumps when I saw this.
In life we always have a choice. For Avery Canahuati and her family the choice was simple, they chose to live.
Avery was diagnosed with an extreme form of SMA of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It’s a rare genetic disease that robs the person of his abilities. From walking, moving all the way to breathing. In Avery’s case she was not expected to live past 18 months.
It’s hard for any parent to accept that their child will die so young. A parent should never have to bury their child. Yet given this dire situation, Mike and Laura Canahuati, Avery’s parents decided that they would choose to live rather than focus on Avery’s death. “Mike always told me that we’ve got all the time in the world to cry. We can cry, you know when she’s no longer here” Laura was quoted as saying during an interview by CNN.
