Heavenly Day

Musical Tuesday: feeling great today, this is one of those songs that expresses it perfectly.

Heavenly Day - Patty Griffin

Oh heavenly day, all the clouds blew away
Got no trouble today with anyone

The smile on your face I live only to see
It's enough for me, baby, it's enough for me
Oh heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

Tomorrow may rain with sorrow
Here's a little time we can borrow
Forget all our troubles in these moments so few

Oh because right now the only thing
That, all that we really have to do
is have ourselves a heavenly day

Lay here and watch the trees sway
Oh, can't see no other way, no way, no way
Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

No one at my shoulder bringing me fears
Got no clouds up above me bringing me tears
Got nothing to tell you, I've got nothing much to say
Only I'm glad to be here with you
On this heavenly, heavenly, heavenly, heavenly day

Oh, all the trouble gone away, oh
For a while, for a while anyway
Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day


  1. This song, as well as "Up to the Mountain" by Patty Griffin, got me through many long nights without Kevin. They still bring me to tears.

  2. I dont know how I found this site, but glad I did. I lost my beautiful John August 4th, 2010. I've now made it thru one anniversary, three family birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I went to Washington where my daughter lives on 130 acres. All our four grown children were there and snow. It was the worst Christmas I've ever had, and at the same time it was the best Christmas I've ever had. I hope to find a support group that either goes camping or just get togethers. I have a motorhome, just need to practice driving it. Trying to get used to the being alone thing. I enjoy reading all your stories and will tell more of my story as time goes on.

  3. You know when you have one of those moments when the universe feels like it is talking to you? I too recently found this site and I feel like it is the lifeline to a future I cant see. When I read the post about the song "Heavenly Day" I felt shivers! That song was one I played for my husband when he first came home from the hospital after his brain biopsy - after one month in the hospital, a cerebral bleed and partial paralysis, he was home. He said "I was in hell and I came back to heaven". The song "Up to the Mountain" was played at his funeral. It is a song I played during his long recovery to regain his ability to walk . . . it signified hope. The hope we held so very long. Since his passing I listen to those songs and like Brenda - I cry remembering it all.
    I feel like I was meant to find this site, that the mention of these songs is a sign . . . none of us are alone. We have lost the people we love but we can find solace sharing our stories.
    Thank you for doing that.
