Friday Music Blog

Welcome back to the most popular segment, the Friday Music Blog (FMB). Throughout the ten weeks I have been posting, the FMB has garnered the most page views and interest among my readership. I am always thrilled to dig deeply for an original topic and see what everyone has to share by posting their selections that adhere to that topic.

Today's focus is song's with the word "Believe" in the title. As with most of my topics, any and every genre is fair game. From Rock to Pop, Country to Gospel, Classical to Alternative, R&B to Polka, and everything in between, list every song that fits the category. This week's blogs have shed the light on the upcoming gift-giving holiday season. From "I Believe" posted on Monday to the "Gift"-centered blogs of mid-week, I am trying in earnest to share the tips and ideas that have enabled me to enjoy rather than dread the Christmas Season I spend with my loved ones. I chose the topic today because believing is the central core that shapes Christmas in my mind. Believing in the story of the First Christmas, believing in the gift bringer, Santa Claus/Father Christmas, and believing in yourself to put on a fantastic celebration, one that others and you can enjoy.

It is with great humbleness, incredulous honor, and a bit of pride that with this, my fiftieth blog posted on my own site, I am on the verge of my five thousandth page view (and no, I do not count my own views of this blog)! With any luck I should make that milestone this morning. Not only do I believe in Santa Claus and having a blissful Christmas, I believe in all of you! And you are showing me that you believe in me, too. Thank you so much for your support, silent or otherwise, that allows me to continue to share my life and perspective on things.

Please join me this weekend for a special posting about the Amazon link I feature. With the upcoming holiday weekend (Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving) so much is happening sale-wise I wanted to inform you.

Have a wonderful weekend, check in a few times to see how the FMB is doing and to see what Amazon has in store for you. And please join me starting Monday for another week of original blogs!
