I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

The song was included later on Dion's greatest hits albums; All the Way… A Decade of Song and My Love: Essential Collection.

So I figured since the overall theme of my blog is giving you soft place to land, I thought this song was just PERFECT! As the year winds down and the day-to-day demands take their toll on our well-being, isn’t it nice knowing that you have an angel looking out for you? Knowing that someone care enough to give you that I can breathe there…I can relax there mantra is the best feeling in the world.
