Music Minute: My Saving Grace

I’m sitting in this car saying a prayer for such a beautiful person and her family. Then my iPod begins playing Mariah Carey’s song My Saving Grace. So I’m singing along as I write this quick post before I head into the service.

What was supposed to be a trip on a whim, turned out to be a hell of a busy weekend and an eventful beginning of the week. I’ve seen ALMOST everyone I’ve needed to see before I leave, except one. That’s beside the point. I’ll be seeing quite a few of my tweethearts/tweeps/tweeties. Too bad they won’t recognize me because they’ve never seen my face (i NEVER post face pics in my twitter avi/dp/twitcon) and I’m in a bit of a disguise. (lol) What can I say, I love being a mystery to people.

What IS important is paying my respects. Funerals give me panic attacks (one of my followers described to me what a panic attack was because she’s has had them before and helped me through a couple via twitter lbvvs. So now I know that I’ve had them before.). The outpouring of emotions gives me a headache as well. I’ll do my best to stay as long as I can but if I feel an attack coming on, I’ve gotta bounce.

I’m playing My Saving Grace a couple more times before I head in. I’ve got her and her family in mind. The loss of a loved one is always hard and even though I’ve never met Nelle personally, she was great to have interacted with on twitter. Her followers are awesome! I’m glad we have mutual followers. I’ve even gained quite a few over the past few days. It’s been awesome seeing the comradery amongst polynesians on twitter since Nelle’s passing. I hope it continues.

Sending love… with kisses and hugs



My Saving Grace as performed by Mariah Carey

I’ve Still Got A Lot To Learn
But, At Least I Know Where I Can Turn
When I’m In My Times Of Need
Just As Long
(As I Know All Things Are Possible)
Just As Long As I Believe

Verse 1
I’ve Loved A Lot, Hurt A Lot
Been Burned A Lot In My Life And Times
Spent Precious Years Wrapped Up In Fear
With No End In Sight
Until My Saving Grace Shined On Me
Until My Saving Grace Set Me Free

Chorus 1
Giving Me Peace
Giving Me Strength When I’d
Almost Lost It All
Catching My Every Fall
I Still Exist Because You Keep Me Safe
I Found My Saving Grace Within You

Verse 2
Yes, I’ve Been Bruised
Grew Up Confused
Been Destitute
I’ve Seen Life From Many Sides
Been Stigmatized
Been Black And White
Felt Inferior Inside
Until My Saving Grace Shined On Me
Until My Saving Grace Set Me Free

Chorus 2
Giving Me Peace
Giving Me Strength When I’d
Almost Lost It All
Catching My Every Fall
I Still Exist Because You Kept Me Safe
I Found My Saving Grace Within You

And The Bountiful Things That You Do
Lord Thank You
For Delivering Me

And Giving me Peace
Giving Me Strength
Giving Me Hope When I’d
Almost Lost It All
Catching My Every Fall
I Still Exist Because You Keep Me Safe
Always My Saving Grace
Pulls Me Through
I Found My Saving Grace Within You

(Yes You Are ? You’re My Every, Everything)
Within You ——-
(Only, Only You)
Yes Lord
(Only You)
My Saving Grace Lord Is You

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete

Weightlifting 🏋🏼‍♀️ in the #offseason is going to get REAL for Cass! #shotput #discus #strong #athlete #thrower #thrownation #fieldnation #tracknation #tracklife #mtpulaski
In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach.

It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos. Next year we’ll be back with a vengeance. 🔥💪🏾#redsmoke #govikings #trackandfield #state #illinois #Class3A #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife

This brought a #smile to my #heart. ☺️ I truly miss her! @gamecockthrows #GoGamecocks #KDYoung #8TimeStateChamp #coach #athlete #shotput #discus #champion
💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
