    1. Thank you for your comment Diana. I for one am always lifted hearing her sing. Bett’s voice is perfect match for this song.

  1. Beaches remains one of my favorite movies of all time. And this song is so beautiful, though it often makes me cry because it makes me think of my mother. She died of cancer when I was 28 years old. She reall was the wind beneath my wings, and continues to be. Awesome song!

    1. It really is a good feeling to learn that our share of Bette’s song, impacted you with the great memory and love for your Mom. So precious! Good music really keeps love alive. Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Big hugs!💗💗💗💗💗

    2. Beaches is a film that has touched the hearts of many. Bette voice brings us to terms with many underlying emotions. And this song is very uplifting. Know in your heart Carol that you will see and experience your Mom’s phenomenal love again… 🎶💗💗

  2. You are probably wondering what I meant with “Joni! D sad Lunda “. There are super wp errors. I meant to say, so glad to know. This’d is crazy. Over three months ago, the errors resulted in me calling someone’s photos as shit instead of shots. And referring to another as an Oreo. The words change after posting. I hope they (wp) swill resolve soon. I love the miniature cup cakes and coffee , they go fast in fast in cyberspace. Enjoy your day dear Joni!🌺🍂💐
