Today is Madonna’s birthday. Madonna the singer, I might add. While I have been a long time fan of Madonna’s I must say I have never met her. I really don’t know her personally nor is she my friend. I would love to meet her and tell her we share the same two middle names.
What would I do if I had the opportunity to meet her? I would shake her hand and tell her what a strong woman she is, what a smart business woman she is and how powerful many of her songs have been for me. I enjoy the fact that she writes most of her own songs. Some of my favorite lines from her songs which are most meaningful to me are: “Nothing takes the past away like the future”; “Traveling down their own road watching the signs as they go, isn’t everyone just traveling down their road? Think I’ll follow my heart, it’s a very good place to start”; “There’s no greater power than the power of goodbye”. I have sent Madonna emails and birthday cards over the years. Today I write happy birthday to her in a blog from Tacoma!
