Ok so you’d think that after reading my post title I’m posting something happy, well not so much. Here’s the story. I have the song Walking on Sunshine sang by Katrina and The Waves on my walking playlist and I have so many songs on there I’ve never heard it play since April when I started walking, until this week. This week also, the emotion’s about Gabriel’s 2 year angelversary quickly approaching on July 12th are starting to surface.
So Monday morning I go walking and I hit the button for a power song and what starts playing, none other than Walking on Sunshine. At first I thought this is a great song and I’ll be fine then as soon as the chorus starts in I start sobbing. I cried as I ran all the way around the track during the whole song. Then on Tuesday I stayed home and exercised on the Kinect so no playlist. Today I go walking again and sure enough I need a power song and what does it go to Walking on Sunshine again, so I bawl again as I run.
Now to explain you need to watch the video below.
I know the video isn’t that great and you can’t hear the music in the background but I remember filming it like it was yesterday. I was cleaning and listening to music when Gabie started dancing around the front room to Walking on Sunshine. Now you understand! Every time I hear that song I cry, I love the song still, but when I hear it, in my mind, I see my baby dancing in the front room and when he falls down at the end I remember picking him up kissing his chubby cheeks and dancing through the rest of the song with him.
So when I heard this song now twice this week when I was already missing him I cried because I felt like he was there reminding me that he’s ok, he’s with me still and he’s happy just like he was that day. I only wish I could pick him up kiss his cheek and dance with him. I so miss my Gabie Baby!
