30 Songs: 16-20 (and Happy Birthday Molly!)

   Hello, dear readers! : )
      I was going to post Part 4 of the 30 Songs Challenge yesterday, but I ran out of time, so here we are. But first....

       On January 27th my sister Molly turned 18! Molly is a very special sister and we've had many wonderful times together (and a few not-so-wonderful. ;-P) She loves playing the piano and flute, selling produce, working with little ones and helping others.

   Molly's and my birthdays are only six days apart, so we've often celebrated them together. She is a very kind sister and I'm so blessed! Happy birthday, Molly! I love you! :-)

   So now for Part 4 of the song challenge:

Day 16: A Song That You Used To Love But Now Hate

 Never Alone by BarlowGirl. I used to really like BarlowGirl and Never Alone was among my top favorite songs for a long time. While I wouldn't go so far as to say that I hate it now, it doesn't really do anything for me. :-P The same goes for most all of BarlowGirl's music.

Day 17: A Song That You Hear Often On the Radio

   Oh, there are so many of these. Usually when a radio station starts to exhaust a certain song by playing it over and over, I inevitably start to dislike it. :-P I remember last year this song was played over and over on one of our local stations.

    I really like this song, but after hearing it over and over and over, I got pretty tired of it for a while. :-)

Day 18: A Song That You Wish You Heard On the Radio

   I generally don't like to listen to the radio because I can't pick the song. :-P I sound so selfish, right? I guess I'm going to give another of my "random answers" for this question. One of my very favorite groups is Celtic Woman, so how about this:

     I just recently discovered this song while researching old Irish music for a school project, and I just LOVE it! Doesn't it just make you want to dance? I also love their dresses in this video.

Day 19: A Song From Your Favorite Album

   I don't really have a favorite album: it changes from time to time. Most of my favorite albums are movie soundtracks, and riight now I'm really loving the Legends of the Fall soundtrack. Here's one of my favorites, Off to War:

Day 20: A Song That You Listen To When You're Angry

   Hmmmm....I don't really listen to music when I'm angry. I usually just sing, or I play the piano. (There is nothing like pounding out The Point of No Return to vent one's frustration!) If I'm angry or frustrated or just out of sorts, I love to sing Irish ballads. I love Irish music (which you may have picked up on by now ; ), and it's so calming when I'm in a bad mood. One of my favorites is Far Away In Australia. I love this version by Dolores Keane:




  1. Happy Birthday to your sister!
    I haven't been following your blog very long, and I have to ask-which of you is the elder and who is who in the picture? :)

  2. Hi Natalie,
    In the picture I'm on the left and Molly is one the right. Molly is three years older than me, but as you can see I am the taller. :-)

  3. Aww both of you are so pretty and you seem like such good friends!

  4. Okay, thanks! Haha, I've known at least 2 sets of sisters where the younger sister is taller than her older sister! :)


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
