The first time I heard this song was over two years when darling daughter and I were visiting family in Texas. My nieces were singing it and doing all these crazy hand movements and claps. They tried to teach darling daughter and she was trying hard to keep up. Fast forward about half a year and we were at a friend's house and once again, a girl was trying to teach darling the hand movments and words. Darling was getting better at it and never got discouraged that she was always a few beats behind. Granted, her cousins and friend are a year or more older than her.
Keep fast forwarding and I heard the song on the radio and darling daughter and I turned up the volume and rocked the car while I drove. It goes without saying it was one of the first songs I added to my playlist. Every time I hear it I think of her, my nieces, and our dear friend. How can that not make you feel happy? And happy feelings are sometimes much needed along a marathon course.
And the song....CUPS by Anna Kendrick.
