The Song of David
5/18/15

By: Amy Harmon
Available: June 15, 2015
Cover by: Hang Le

Synopsis:

She said I was like a song. Her favorite song. A song isn’t something you can see. It’s something you feel, something you move to, something that disappears after the last note is played.

I won my first fight when I was eleven years old, and I’ve been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white. Where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood.

For me, heaven was the octagon.

Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her, her straight dancer’s posture unyielding, her chin high, her hands loose at her sides. No one seemed to see her at all, except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn’t normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?

If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung and the most important battles are the ones we don’t think we can win.

7 Things for 7 Days - March Birthdays - #7Things7Days

I love March. It's the start of SPRING! It's also my birth month. So for this weeks #7Things7Days, I'm sharing a few notable March birthdays!

Enjoy!




Patricia Heaton
Who could forget Debra of "Everybody Loves Raymond"? The show seriously makes me lough out loud every time I catch a re-run! Heaton was born on March 4.

Bryan Cranston
Walter White himself was born on March 7. I admit, I binge-watched "Breaking Bad" during the winter of 2014. I can't see Bryan Cranston without hearing the words "I am the one who knocks!"

Matthew Gray Gubler
My favorite geek, Dr. Spencer Reid on "Criminal Minds", was born on March 9. The phrase "Talk nerdy to me" definitely applies here.

Carrie Underwood
Born on March 10, she wasn't my choice to win season 4 of "American Idol", but I'll admit... I was wrong. She is awesome!

Ansel Elgort
The guy who brought Augustus Waters to life was born on March 14. His performance might not have garnered as much attention as that of his leading lady, but I loved him just as much as her!

Adam Levine
Marron 5's front man was born on March 18. He's known as a heartthrob, but he's also insanely talented!

Harry Houdini
The man whose last name is know used as a verb and/or adjective meaning to escape was born on March 24!

7 Things for 7 Days - POSITIVE NEWS - #7Things7Days

Last week's 7 Things for 7 Days inspired the hubby and I to plan a "Kentucky" vacation for this summer, and show our boys some of the really cool, beautiful places our state has to offer. Which means... some time in mid-June, I'll do a few blog posts about our adventures, complete with pictures!

For this week's #7Things7Days, I hope to inspire you and your week with some POSITIVE news stories. We see SO MUCH bad news that sometimes it's easy to forget that there really is good news out there. You just have to dig for it. So I did.

Enjoy!

1. A Close-Up of the Sun - Science is cool y'all. I'm no science genius, but I'm glad for those who are! This time-lapse video of NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory gives us a powerful and magnificent glimpse at the sun. Seriously... watch the video!

2. 600 Kids Sing The Star-Spangled Banner  - Kentucky choir students have a 25+ year tradition. Each February, the 600+ students who've been selected as All-State Chorus members stay in the Hyatt Regency in downtown Louisville during the days they are rehearsing for their performance. Each night, just before their curfew, they come out on their balconies and sing the National Anthem. The hotel is 18 floors of an atrium design, resulting in amazing acoustics for this annual tradition.

3. 64 Year-old Recovers Treasured Memories - A Goodwill employee finds a stack of decades-old love letters and returns them to the addressee, who happens to be a 64 year-old woman suffering from a failing memory... possibly dementia or another similar disorder. What follows are jogged memories, bringing the woman so much joy, as well as a sweet friendship between her and the Goodwill employee. Get a hankie ready, folks!

4. The Breakfast Club Returns to Theaters - To celebrate the 30 year anniversary of it's release, this classic will return to theaters for a limited time in March, hopefully introducing a whole new generation to Claire, Bender, Andy, Brian, and Allison.

5. Kidney Transplant Leads to True Love - She heard about a young man who needed a kidney transplant. Amazingly, she was a match, even though the majority of living kidney transplant matches come from a blood relative. Then, they fell in love. What a great story!

6. Community Restoration - An innovative way to breathe life back into the neighborhoods and communities in Detroit... everything from helping the homeless to establishing community theater. Good stuff.

7. Silent Teen Finds Voice with Music -  A teen who hadn't spoken in over a decade gets involved in a summer music program. The effects are miraculous. Music really does heal.
