Music Memories Monday – Matthew (John Denver)

Let me say right up front that I am unabashed fan of John Denver. He was woven in the tapestry of my life during my college years and now, years after, I still find myself humming or singing some of his songs.

Denver wrote this as a tribute to his Uncle Matthew who lost his farm during the Great Depression. It reminds me of how my grandparents took my parents and the four of us kids in their home during times we were  in transition.

Have you or your family ever been a multiple family members situation? Would you be willing to live with family or welcome family to live with you?

    Living with family is NOT easy, Susan. I’ve done it. And I don’t think I will do it again. Hope you are doing well as well as that rascal George Baily! Love, Amy

      I don’t think very many people would choose to live that way, but sometimes it’s better than being homeless…at least for a time. Thanks for commenting! Love you back.

    I think there are times when we’re given the grace to walk through a situation such as you describe as well the freedom to make that choice! It’s not for the faint at heart and requires “great feet of strength” ~
    All kidding aside though if there were anyone I would and did welcome into my home was my darling precious Gran~
    Bless ye lass!

  3. I like John! Most of his stuff, that is. Hmm…professorish family? Impossible!

    Yes, me too, in terms of having been a fan. Regarding your question, no I haven’t. Perhaps off and on for short stints, that is all. Say, are you gone from Facebook?

    I would not. Opportunities for reconciliation are passed and if any if us were to pass we would not know. Terrible yes but such is life.
