Song Lyric Sunday.10/11/19 Modal Verbs

This week Jim Adams of Newepiauthor has given us the prompt words: Could/Might/Should/Would for our Song Lyric Sunday.

Now I have had to think long and hard about this one. I really did not want to go for the obvious. I think this is one of the hardest prompts that Jim has set us.

Well I have decided to go with Alanis Morissette ones of my favourite Canadian singer songwriters. The song I have chosen is That I would be good for you.

The lyrics relate Morissette’s intimate feelings about being judged, insecurity and self-doubt, expressing in theme and variation the desire to be sufficient in the face of changing external circumstances. The song received positive reviews from music critics, who praised the flute solo by Morissette and its sweetness. Commercially, the single only charted on BillboardAdult Top 40 and the NetherlandsSingle Top 100.

I hope you all enjoy this and have a great SundayπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

        Lucky you, that is a great film. I am entertaining my 99yr old Mother in law, our usual Sunday too. πŸ’œ

        Wow. 99 is a fine age too. I’m surprised by how wonderful and agile some look at this age. I often talk to a couple of the residents in the nursing home and I absolutely love listening to their stories of when they were young . I’m actually away for an interview lunchtime at my local care home here. I’ve not managed to work for well over 20 years through different health issues ( which I still have) but it’ll be bank work, so I’ll be able to choose whether to work a shift or not depending on my pain/fatigue and of course mum, she’ll always take priority over everything else just now. I feel like giving a bit back in a sense, even just to see these lovely old people smile means a lot to me. Some unfortunately don’t have any family or visitors I’ll definitely enjoy making a difference no matter how small. Have a lovely day, it’s very sunny up here but a slight chill. Enjoy your day Willow πŸ’œ

        Yes 99yrs is a good age, mind you she has never really liked me which makes Sundays a tad stressful. I think you are doing a wonderful thing applying to get a job at a nursing home. Giving something back that’s amazing. I am busy today but the weather is good so that always helps. I really do hope you have a lovely day too and good luck with the interview.πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

        Good morning Willow. Hoping today finds you well ? First but of news is I was offered the job as relief care worker for my local care home 😊 I also want to say please forgive me for only just reading your Bio this morning. Wow. You have been through a lot my friend. I also have had back surgery due to osteoarthritis and nerve damage. I also had to medically retire from working in 1998. With this new job it will be up to me if I take a shift or not, it’s going to be trial and error. It’s been over 20 years since I was last in a job interview so I was pretty shaky but spoke honestly. I also want to add that I’ve started to read about Sofia, absolutely fantastic work Willow, how very talented you are lovely lady. I’m not sure whether any of my input is being seen or not ? There will be days that I find difficult due to pain and as you know it can change your whole thought process and there will be days I’ll not be able to contribute. I must say everyone is so friendly and if I can learn something along the way even better. It’s a terrible day up here I knew before I risen from bed as my joints ached more than normal. So with some coffee and a tad of WD40 πŸ™‚I’m about as good as I can be. I know you have many many friends and your lovely sister to talk with but my ears are always open and my shoulders are free to be leant on if need be. I don’t want to sound pushy but if you would like my e-mail address whereby we could communicate better then I’m more than happy to give you it. Gentle hugs πŸ’œ

        Hi Michelle I am delighted to hear that you have got the job. That is great but do be careful and look after yourself as care work can be very heavy not to mention tiring. That said I have no doubt you will love it. You have a lovely nature and a genuine interest in older people. Yes I have been unlucky with my back but I am very lucky that I am still standing πŸ™ƒ and it taught me some valuable life lessons. I have been busy this morning and the weather was lovely, but I am off to the hairdresser’s in a bit and it is now windy and pouring with rain! Gosh I have been writing this for over an hour! I have prepared lunch sorted the washing and now at the hairdresser’s, via the chemist, to get my presciption. I am glad you are reading Sophia…I am afraid it is unfinished. I am happy to trade emails with you, that is very kind of you. I hope you are having a good pain free day and continue to do so. I like your blog and I am sure people do take note of it. I must hit send now or I won’t get this off for another hour. My email is willowat21@gmail.com love for now.πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

        Bless you Willow for your kind words. It’s been a while since I’ve been to the hairdresser so I’m hoping you are relaxing whilst having your hair done. Hoping your pain isn’t too bad either my friend. Thank you for being so nice and understanding. Love n hugs Michelle πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

        Hope your now nice and cosy πŸ€— One of the first things I do (apart from feeding Charlie 😻) is put the kettle on. Especially on cold, wet and windy days. Hoping your happy with your hair. I always love the feeling after being to the hairdressers it’s like a new lease of life. πŸ’œπŸ’œ

    I always liked her, she expresses so much angst, this song no different.

    Great choice Willow. Alanis Morissette has won seven Grammy Awards and twelve Juno Awards, so she must be doing something right.

    Alanis Morissette is brilliant. I didn’t know this son, Willow. Thanks for the introduction.
