So, I like clouds. When I was little kid, I loved to lay on my trampoline and stare at the sky on cloudy days and think of what the clouds were pictures of.   Did you ever do that? But in addition to clouds, I love the smell of a incoming storm, and the colors of the rainbow after said storm. Looking at clouds, in a way, helps me to think of my dad and mom. Now, being a member of the lds church. I know, that my parents are not resting on a cloud in heaven. Heaven is very near. But looking at them, sometimes a gentle reminder..and a reassurance too.

Late last night as I trudged through my Facebook, I stumbled upon a new song that I love. The song is named...Clouds. I found this through People magazine. The singer and writer of this song is currently battling a losing fight with cancer. I will post this video, I love the lyrics..they made me cry. But they also inspire me. Since this is my blog, i'm posting the lyrics for me..and for all my friends that will appreciate them too. Grab a kleenex.

Clouds- By Zach Sobiech

I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore

And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold,
Of the edge you were sitting there holding a rope

And we'll go up, up, up
But i'll fly a little higher
Go up in the clouds, because the views a little nicer

Up here, my dear- It won't be long now

When we get back on land, well I'll never get my chance
Be ready to live, and it'll be ripped right out of my hads

And maybe someday, we'll take a little ride
We'll go up, up, up
And everything will be just fine

We'll go up, up, up
But i'll fly a little higher

Go up in the clouds, because the view's a little nicer
Up here, my dear, it won't be long now-

If only-I had a little bit more  time with you
We'll sit there holding hands and everything will be just right

And maybe someday, I'll see you again-
We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end~

So for Joelenne's 30th...WE WENT TO JERSEY BOYS!!! AAGH. I've only wanted to see this show for 8 yrs or however long its been here. I'm celebrating my birthday too you know, just 3 months late. LOL Mon Ami Gabi..or my friend gabi in Francais, was great except the steak was really, really, over done..I won't order that again.I can say that we did try the escargot. I think that will be a one timer for sure. But I loved the location!!! We sat facing the Bellagio, probably my favorite hotel on the strip. The Paris is lovely though. As I walked through the casino, I was reminded of the streets of Paris, no joke. As for Jersey Boys? We loved it! But, considering who the show was based on, let me just say my ears almost fell off due to some of the language. I tried not to think of that though. The music was great. I grew up listening to oldies from my Dad, so I was familiar with the music.  It was great. Here's a clip..
Scary to think about six hours later that night, there was a horrible car accident/shooting right where we walked and anyways the Strip was shut down for two days. It made national news. You just never know.
