Part of Saturday and Some of Sunday I Was Singing

I was singing Whitney Houston songs. Am I surprised that she passed away? Nope. I just really liked her voice, her beauty and her songs bring back memories. I roller skated to many of her first songs. Body Guard came out when I was in high school.

Mica: "What are you singing Mommy?"
Me: "Whitney Houston."
Mica: "Who's that?"
Me: "A singer."
Mica: "Ok." With a funny look on his face because I was singing away.

I wasn't the only one. Daddy was singing, I'm Every Woman. When we first got married we sang that song a lot. I sang it to get it in Daddy's head. It became a joke. Mica truly thought we were crazy. We probably are.

Before bedtime we watched a few Whitney Houston videos on YouTube. Mica didn't think we were so crazy then. Mica did ask why she was so important? We told him the truth. He had trouble understanding how she could be on screen and be passed. He didn't say anything like that when Michael Jackson passed away. He just watched his videos in amazement. He did ask why Michael Jackson looked like a girl?

These lyrics are stuck in my head:

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

She both succeeded and failed. Still, no one can take away her dignity.

In an interview with Barbra Walters, she was asked about drugs. She said her greatest enemy is herself. She never once tried to blame her problems on anyone, but herself.

We didn't fully end the night in such a somber mood. I showed Mica and Isaak some Sumo Wrestling. We had a good laugh. I had to show them real sumo wrestlers since I had them in training last week. Then Daddy wanted to watch a Bruce Lee segment. The boys think they are Kung Fu masters. Any martial art is Kung Fu in their minds.

you know, i am sad she passed... as I am whenever I hear of anyone that does...but then, I think of all the other people that pass as well and I feel like too much attention is given to some... and not enough to others...
I do pray for her daughter, as she is having a really hard time
