New Year’s Themed Songs


Another year has gone by, Kittens and Dawgs! Although, I always say this every January, wasn’t it only yesterday that the new year ushered in?  I’m actually glad to see 2016 come to a close, as I feel this year will be more promising.  My! My! Time Flies!  Last week, XmasDolly gave us two mewsic themes and I mostly stayed on the Christmas song path but this week I’m running with the New Year’s theme songs.

Thank you for including me in your Monday. ? My friend, XmasDolly who puts on the Monday’s Music Moves Me ? linky party is a bit short-handed and I volunteered to co-host as long for as long as she needs me.  You’re invited to hit the dance floor.

Do you set goals or new year’s resolutions? If so, what is one of yours for 2017? One of my goals for the new year, should DH’s job become full-time employment, is for us to get into a new house. ? ?

Be inspired, feel alive. It’s a new year!

This is a new year, this is a new day to rise
Shine, lift up your eyes
This is a new year, this is a new day to rise
Shine and point the way to God’s great life

Here are the lyrics to New Year.


What New Year’s mewsic moves you this Monday? ?

Do you like mewsic? If so, then I invite you to check out and vote for your favorite artist in my first Battle of the Bands showdown for 2017. One more thing, if you’re the creative type and looking for more memes to connect with then Impulsive Artistry hosts the Monday meme Feeling Inspired? where you can share your photography, crafts, mewsic, and more posts.

Thank you for including me in your Monday and don’t forget to hop back for not-so Wordless Wednesday!












A #fathersday tribute to my daddy #music

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I hope all dads in Blogosphere have a special Father’s Day. I’m grateful that my daddy is still with me and for the sweet memories I have spent with him as a little girl. I dedicated this post to my daddy, as I Dance with my Father.


Luther Vandross is the author of this beautifully moving song. He wrote of his personal experiences with his dad who died when he was 7-years old from diabetes. He recorded it 2003, earning him Song of the Year and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Although I love Vandross’ original cut, I decided to use Celine’s cover since a female voice spoke to my heart and best suited this tribute to my daddy.
