As this very confusing month for me continued on, there were many odd things happening and April of 2014 was quite complex to say the least!
I remember it being very hot which is unusual weather for April in Ohio. After school, the kids wanted to go in the sprinkler and I had to turn on the A/C! With them outside, I decided to watch t.v. which I never do at around 4:30 p.m. The movie Titanic was on which I believe they show every year in April around the anniversary. Anyway, the ship had just hit the iceberg– perfect huh… I got hooked watching and realized it was getting time to start dinner. I can’t believe I was watching this movie considering that epic song and words, what timing….
I went to the kitchen and decided to get this corningware dish I rarely use but couldn’t reach so grabbed a chair. While getting the dish, the lid slipped out of my hand, crashed to the floor and broke everywhere!
I just stared realizing what had happened and then opened the window calling the kids to bring me my flip-flops. I jumped on the counter to avoid the glass. As I was cleaning I said how I’d never seen something so shattered in my life before. I immediately thought of my emotions being shattered when hearing about the loss of Warrior. I also thought of Dana and the girls. This metaphor describes how they must’ve felt.
We did finish watching Titanic and it was a little history lesson for my kids. Even though that song is so emotional and haunting, I actually got out my Celine Dion CD of greatest hits and blasted “My Heart will Go on” while singing at the top of my lungs! Who does that?? Guess I needed to let something out.
I can still hear the character of Rose telling Jack how she’ll never let go and with my spiritual connection to Warrior, in some ways I can’t either. Also, I am reminded of this very odd day every time I open my cupboard and see that corningware dish without its matching lid. The heart does go on in its OWN time and way…. 🛳⚓️

I do that! Almost weekly! I’ll be reminded of a song and ten look it up and blast it and sing along. Esp if it’s a song I karaoke to. Singing is a huge stress reliever for me and that’s why I karaoke as often as I do. There’s something so freeing with getting your emotions out without having to talk about it. I have so many favorites right now (Breathe, Try everything, fight song, etc) But a lyric that plays through my head often is “These words are my diary screaming out loud! ….it’s no longer inside of me threatening the life it belongs to.” From Breathe.
Thanks for not bashing “My Heart will Go on”, lol… Music has always influenced me and I have a post about that with certain songs! That would never end, too many to mention!!
