If you can feel the sun… life can’t be bad!

I have a playlist of songs that I have ready when I need some good music and I need it fast …

Every time, without fail when Blessed by Joan Armatrading plays … I stop in my tracks. It’s powerful and sweet and a reminder of all the wonderful things I already have in my world. I couldn’t find her singing it so I am including a YouTube video so you can hear the lyrics and music. It’s less than 2 minutes long and leaves you wanting more.


Life is hard
Work is dirty
Friends plead poverty
Fame and fortune
Keeps it’s own time
So don’t wait up

But if you can feel the sun
If you can feel the rain
Life can’t be bad
If you’ve got food to eat
And all your dreams to dream
Life can’t be bad
If you can walk away
and fight another day
Life can’t be that bad

For all the things that I can do
How could I complain
I’ve got no broken wings
I’ve got a heart that sings
And I feel blessed

  1. Thank you for these simple words – I woke up this morning breathing, alive, I can feel all of my wings, see my smile in the mirror smiling back at me, fresh snow outside, warmth inside and friends to “talk” with… I am so blessed!
