I’m a Wanna Be A Sonshine Girl. . .

“Sunshine Girl” By Britt Nicole

Did you wake up on the right or the wrong side of the bed today?
Maybe your morning’s running right on time or a little late
Head out
Traffic’s slow on the interstate
Take the back way
Will this be a good or a bad day?
Well don’t you worry

[CHORUS]
*I could be your sunshine girl (I could be His Sonshine Girl)
Or the company for your misery
*I could be the quiet one
*Or the life of the party
*Whatever you need, I’m your girl (I’m His Girl)

When you show up does everybody smile and wave or look away?
*Are you feeling beautiful or is this a bad hair day?
*Maybe you’re falling so in love or your heart is about to break
*Will this be a good or a bad day?
*Well either way

I could be your sunshine girl
Or the company for your misery
I could be the quiet one
Or the life of the party

[CHORUS]

Go ahead, freak out
*I’m gonna stay
*So if you’re happy or sad, well baby, you can look my way

I could be your sunshine girl
Or the company for your misery
I could be the quiet one
Or the life of the party
I could be your sunshine girl
Or the company for your misery
I could be the quiet one
Or the life of the party
[CHORUS]

 

After the Sonflower Post, I have not been able to get this song out of “my head.” I do love sunflowers, although I’m allergic to them :). But I have a dear friend, Gaye, who loves them more than I do. So, I dedicate this Post, to Gaye, my dear Sunflower friend. 

I’m a wanna be Sonshine Girl. I use to love rolling down the windows and playing happy music until two streets over could hear it too. (Much to my girls chagrin.)  I painted my first kitchen yellow with yellow wall paper. I’ve left anonymous yellow roses places. I developed a love for lemon trees. One of my favorite summer dresses in high school was yellow. I had more shades of yellow in my cross-stitch thread collection that of any other color. I’d go in looking for blue flowers at the plant nursery and end up in the yellow section. I always wanted to put a big yellow bow in my girls hair (even if it did not match their dress!), who doesn’t want a dollop of sunshine in their hair? I enjoyed painting my nursery yellow because all four babies were surprises! I’ve spent a lifetime with cameras trying to catch just one ray of sunshine of a daughter’s shoulder. I’ve sung to John Denver’s Sunshine on My Shoulders more times than the National Anthem. I would linger in the light of the sun, at the beach, until it slipped below the horizon, gathering every last moment. (Their are limits,I am not the early bird gets the worm in the light of sunrise!)

I am not able to resemble Sunshine, but I can hope to be God’s wanna be Sonshine girl, one day, when I grow up.

  1. 🌻Thank you Tracey,
    I hope and pray that I might be “made to be” a wanna be sonshine girl! You know I do love sunflowers!!🌻 I was blessed to visit Van Gogh’s in Amsterdam & am so intrigued that he paints a vase of 12 sunflowers ~ hum, intriguing indeed! My next (virtual) house is all yellow:-)

  2. As Frank says, there are two ways to be the Light. You are either the Candle or you are the mirror that reflects the light of the Candle. You are our Sonshine mirror!! You shine the Son’s light on us!
