You’ve Got a Friend

Happy 2022! ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽŠ

I hope your new year has been off to a great start! โค

Here is my cover of “Auld Lang Syne.”

Did you make a new year’s resolution? If so, you are six days in. How’s it going? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Something that you can do to help you achieve your goals is to surround yourself with people who will support you in achieving your goals and help you be your best self. ๐Ÿ’™

Someone who was supportive of my goals and helped me be my best self was my grandfather.

Today is his birthday, and I have been honoring him. ๐Ÿ’š (I posted something special he had given me on myย Instagram today if you’d like to check it out.)

My grandfather was a wonderful human being, and one song that I feel describes him is “You’ve Got a Friend” by Carole King.

Lyrics:

When you’re down and troubled
And you need some lovin’ care
And nothin’, nothin’ is goin’ right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night
You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend
If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you’ll hear me knockin’ at your door
You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’, runnin’, yeah, yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yes, I will
Now, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend
When people can be so cold?
They’ll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don’t you let them
You just call out my name
And you know, wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’, runnin’, yeah, yeah
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yes, I will
You’ve got a friend
You’ve got a friend
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend
Ain’t it good to know, ain’t it good to know
Ain’t it good to know
You’ve got a friend
Oh, yeah, now, you’ve got a friend
Yeah baby, you’ve got a friend
Oh, yeah, you’ve got a friend

Here’s a picture of my grandpa and me when I was an itty bitty baby. โ˜บ

My grandfather was ALWAYS willing to help ANYONE. He cared about EVERYONE. It is truly admirable, and I hope that I can have as much care and compassion for others as he did. ๐Ÿ’›

When you hear this song, who does it make you think of?

I wish you the best of luck in achieving your new year’s resolution if you made one.

This year, may you surround yourself with people who will always be there for you and help you be the best version of yourself. ๐Ÿงก
