Marvelous is Somebody’s Someone

Happy Memorial Day! I just want to take a moment to thank all of the men and women who have died serving our country, as well as those who are currently fighting for us today.

I don’t have a regular post planned, so I’m going to share one of my favorite songs by that really touches my heart and puts the life of a soldier in perspective. The song is Somebody’s Someone by Lone Star.

“Somebody’s Someone”

Turn to the six o’clock news, another soldier dies
Tried to hide it but I couldn’t help it, I had to cry
When my little boy asked me daddy was he your friend
I said no, I didn’t even know himBut he was somebody’s someone, a neighbor, a husband
A brother, a father, and a mother’s only son
He was an uncle, a cousin, somebody’s best friend
And I’m sure at times a shoulder to lean on
He was somebody’s someoneSo I sat there in that chair and helped him understand
How this brave young man gave his life for our land
And although he’s someone we’ll never know
To you and me he is a hero

He was somebody’s someone, a neighbor, a husband
A brother, a father, and a mother’s only son
He was an uncle, a cousin, somebody’s best friend
And I’m sure at times a shoulder to lean on
He was somebody’s someone

To the world he was a total stranger
Who kept us safe and out of danger
But now he’s just a picture on TV
Somebody’s memory

He was somebody’s someone, a neighbor, a husband
A brother, a father, and a mother’s only son
He was an uncle, a cousin, somebody’s best friend
And I’m sure at times a shoulder to lean on
He was somebody’s someone
He was somebody’s someone

    • I certainly was! Twas a sad day 😦

      That’s crazy that that happened to you too! I think for me it’s because my stomach is messed up so literally everything I was eating at the time I became allergic to. Which unfortunately is still plaguing me to this day 😦 Almond butter is amazing, but unfortunately all nut butters bother right now…. Hope that you feel tons better after eliminating peanut butter!

Let me know what you think. Leave a reply!
