Thursday Theme Song: Whatever will be, will be



When I was a little girl. Will I be rich and live a big mansion on a private island, play with a boat and jet ski and go parasailing?















Now I have children of my own.


On the first day 0f 2012, I remember this Doris Day's song, Que Sera Sera. What an appropriate song for us as we look forward to the big unknown, and not to fret over what will happen.

Of course, in reflection, 2011 has been a great year for me. I managed to write my book which had been sitting for 21 years, got it published and sold a few copies. Got an article in the newspaper and in a documentary on National TV.

Best of all, I went to Facebook and found a whole lot of friends I had not seen in over 30 years. The best is yet to come.

Spanish & means, "what will be, will be."

Doris Day - Que Sera Sera Lyrics

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

When I was young, I fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows, day after day
Here's what my sweetheart said.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich
I tell them tenderly.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

I have always loved that song. It is a good philosophy to live by...although also good to put in some effort, just not getting hung up on results. Happy New Year.
