Daily Prompt: Always Something There to Remind Me

This beloved tear-jerker from John Michael Montgomery takes me back to blasts from the past.

I didn’t have a lovely childhood. But the few treasured moments I was allowed to escape to my aunt’s house was full of pure happiness. My parents and my aunt would meet at a halfway point of three hours to exchange us kids. So the long car rides to fun-town began with country music, young conversations and joy filled memories. We would sing at the top of our lungs to every word of this song. Of course when you are 4, some of those words mush together to make it sound like you know the lyrics, but it’s all the same I technically know the song by heart.

She would take me everywhere. Shopping, play dates, the beauty salon she worked at. Her love for me just beamed like blinding sun rays out of the cloudy sky. I adored her more than life itself.

When I hear this country song or others from circa the 90’s, I have fond memory flashes to a time of innocence and freedom.
