And, this song could also be also named my personal theme song from 2003 to 2005, as I erased the "lost my love" theme of the song and replaced it, frankly, with "lost my mother". I can't tell you how many times after my Mama passed on December 28, 2002 that I would play this song on CD in my van, mostly driving to and from work, singing along, and crying on, well, much more than one occasion.
I loved the song before this happened, but then, it took a new, deeper, and more special meaning. And I cannot hear it to this day without thinking about those dark days, and how thankful I am that I am in a better place, a better stage of my life here in 2017. The song, mind you, also brings back wonderful memories of Mama, so, today, it elicits many more smiles than tears. :)
We have one final masterpiece from Ronstadt coming later in June, and it could be much later. Any guesses? :)
