For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Alan Jackson - Sissy's song Lyrics

This song is good although bittersweet. I thought it was a good way to wrap up this week's ideas. Why bad things happen to good people, suffering, attitudes, illness, and of course - as always - another good reason to live life as much as you can - right now.

I had just read or heard on the radio that story behind this song!
She was a young gal who worked for them, killed in a car crash going to or from work I believe. Alan wrote the song in her memory, as her death really touched him, and their family.

Yes and I was thinking about the young mom who lost her life at 30 to breast cancer.

This song is so beautiful and so sad. I feel comfort though thinking about the little 12 year girl, my son's best friend, that lost her battle with brain cancer sending all of a us a message telling us not to worry about her. It's almost like she is talking to all of us. Thank you Alan for writting such a touching song.

I am a 37 year old mother of 8 and this song truly touched me because I am a daughter, wife, and mother who is going to die young. I am diabetic and in kidney failure as well as other complications. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved her.
