#TuesdayTune ~ Remembering 9/11

Welcome sweet friends to this week's #TuesdayTune post.


This is a rather solemn weekend for many as it is the nine year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It is also the weekend when my husband and I will be remembering the twin boys that we lost 15 years ago. My sweet little boys were born too early and now they are in heaven; they are guardian angels looking over us and protecting us each and every day. 




Today's Song is dedicated to all people who are remembering lost loved ones. It is a song of remembrance, love and faith....a song about Angels.

To Where You Are
Sung by Josh Groban and written by Richard Marx andLinda Thompson 

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memory, so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are my
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away not far
To where you are.

  14. Oh my dear Natasha, thinking of you at this sad time but what a beautiful song to use as a tribute to both your boys and 9/11. I used him on Sunday Song back in May for Festa Delle Mamma.http://lindyloumac.blogspot.com/2010/05/sunday-song-festa-della-mamma.html

    I also apologise for what may seem like a slightly inappropriate song from me this weekend but I had no idea of the theme of your post :(

    Many blessings to you.

  16. Dear Natasha, I must admit I am a bit lost for words, all the words I think of sound a bit of a cliché. But I did want to let you know how sad I was reading about the loss of your two sons!
    I'll burn two candles for you today. XX Sandra

  17. Hi Lindy Lou! I just wanted to say thanks so much for your sweet message. I just popped by and left a message for you saying that even though today is sad for us it is also a happy day because Mr Attorney and I met on this day 18 years ago! So your song choice is absolutely perfect considering the happy ever ending on the film clip!

    Thanks again!
    Natasha.

  18. I am sorry for your loss. I do believe we are still connected to those we've lost. And it's so important to remember them. I'm remembering with you today.

  19. Dear Natasha, I didn't know you had lost twins. I'm so sad for you! But I'm glad you are spending today remembering them. How amazing that you chose that picture for them at the top! That's the same picture I used (on little cards) to send out to 'announce' the passing of my 6 1/2 month (in the womb) little boy, Samuel. He was born perfect but about the size of your hand. I thought I would never get over it. I love those pictures of the cherubs as they seemed to celebrate the short life of my precious little boy who never lived outside the womb.

    This evening, if I can, I will link to my song "Like Me" about one of my babies. It starts out..

    A squirming babe lies in my arms,
    with adoring eyes, so quick to charm,
    chubby cheeks, a precious pout,
    capricious curls,legs short and stout.

    She's a miracle in every way,
    Like a flower blooming day by day.
    A gift from God, but just a loan,
    since a baby's soul one cannot own.

    I hope you don't mind me sharing some of the words just in case I don't get the song posted.

    You can read the rest of it or hear it at my music blog www.songsoghome.blogspot.com.

    I hope it blesses you. It makes me think of your photo of the angels.

    I'm getting ready to head to Dallas for a final trip to my Dad's house for more estate work. It seems to have taken over my life in some ways! I do hope there is time to come back here this evening.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment the other day about my new grandson.

  21. Beautiful song. I lost my mother and brother this past year and the lyrics are meaningful. Another song that always makes me cry and think of them is Sarah Brightman's "Time to Say Goodbye".

  22. Dear Natasha, I understand your pain. To be a mother is to love our kids more than we love ourselves. I am glad now you are blessed with two wonderful kids and they are blessed with a great mom and dad!
    Wishing you a peaceful Sunday.

  23. This has been a difficult weekend for all of us. Your grief is compounded by the loss of your twins. God bless you. This is a beautiful post, thank you.

  24. Oh, Natasha, I'm so, so sorry for your loss. Time may ease the immediacy of it, but it doesn't hurt any less to lose children. Prayers and all good thoughts are with your family ....

  25. I am thinking of you and your sweet little boys.

  26. A loss of a child is so hard to carry. Besides the loss, it is out of the natural timing - the child before the parent. I am glad that you also have good memories of this time of year.

  31. I tried to post a comment earlier but I don't think it went through. Josh Groban is one of my favorite singers and this song may be my favorite of all his songs. I know it has given comfort to a lot of hurting people and I know it is helpful to you. Thank you for sharing your heart and this beautiful video.
    Blessings,
    Charlotte

  35. I am so sorry you lost your little ones. I'm sure that isn't something you ever fully recover from.

    Thank you for you comment on my 9/11 post. I think I'm just learning how much an American crisis reached others all over the world.

    This is one of my favorite songs...made me cry today.

    I am so sorry for your loss. You have two very special angels watching over you.

  38. Hi Natasha...

    What a beautiful, sweet and moving song by Josh Groban. Thank you for sharing it with us today! It's very befitting and a wonderful tribute to all of our loved ones who have gone on...before us! I rest in Jesus' promise to us...that our loss is just a temporary absence...for we shall meet again...never to part no more!

    I am so sorry for your loss, sweet friend! I really can't imagine the pain of losing a child! Sending hugs and prayers your way today, Sweetie!

    I am also remembering and paying tribute to all of those who lost their lives on 911. Praying for their families as well! Thank you for sharing this lovely and heartfelt tribute with all of us today! So glad that you shared it with Sunday Favorites!!!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari
