I read this thread and I was moved to post. Irene, you have said what we all have been feeling. I was already drawn to the music that Michael performs, but what drew me to Michael was his humanity. He maintains his humanity and shares this - possibly without even realizing it. He reaches out to people in the most endearing and genuine ways.
I will share an experience that I witnessed; though I am leary about sharing this as I feel that it is not mine to share. It felt like I was witnessing a personal experience between Michael and one of his fans... but it is a testament to Michael and so I will post in any case.
After a show, when Michael walked out to greet his fans (he was evidently exhausted) he stood for over an hour signing and hugging fans. There was a woman escorted by two family members and my friend and I directed them up towards Michael. The family members informed Michael that the woman was blind and that she would recognize him by his voice. Michael took her hands and asked how she would know what he looks like. He spoke gently to her then took her hands and put them on his face and laughed and joked about the features of his face as her fingers glided over his nose and lips. It was one of the most tender moments I have witnessed..(I do have some experience working with sensory impaired individuals - and this gesture is one of the most intimate forms of connection) I know that no one here is surprised by it.. nor am I, but it was still a sweet moment and I felt special to be able to witness it.

Mom Buble - thank you for allowing us all to share these little moments with your son; Michael is undoubtedly a talented entertainer, but more importantly, he is a remarkable individual with a noble heart. Thank you.
Shelley

Boricua,

Thanks for that. I've been doubling up my music time, and listening to Michael more than before, because it's the only thing that takes me away from my worries and sadness.

I love coming to this board. It'slike a breath of fresh air for the soul!

Laurie, I responded to your PM. If you didn't receive an answer, could you let meknow here? Thanks,

Andrea

HI LORETTA,
I'M HERE! MY JOB HAS BEEN KEEPING ME UNUSUALLY BUSY. I PEEK IN WHEN I GET A CHANCE BUT I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO CHAT LIKE I USUALLY DO.

I READ ABOUT IRENE'S PLOT TO LASSO MICHAEL AND TAKE OFF IN A CHUCKWAGON. HOPE THE PLAN GOES OFF WITHOUT A HITCH. I WOULD MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP TO SALT LAKE TO SEE THAT!

I THINK OF YOU ALL EVERYDAY. TALK TO YOU SOON. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image http://michaelbuble....s/icon_cool.gif

Hey Loretta,
I certainly can have sympathy... It seems we have the same sinuses..... This time of year with the low pressures that come in. It kills me. Woke up Wednesday at midnight, with a blasting headache. Didn't loose it until late last night. Worked all day, as the show must go on..... But.... was I miserable. Good today... All I'm doing today is ripping my patio apart and cleaning it and setting it up for Easter and the family coming over. Don't ask where I get the energy. I just keep moving..... If I ever stop, I'll never get up again... LOL...
Hugs and take care... and Happy Easter, everyone

And how I would love for you to meet him. I cannot imagine him any other way. I hate it when people say "Cure Autism" You can't cure it, it's who they are. You can help the symptoms that make it diffoicult to function: you can help them learn speech, behavior, and physical tasks, but for me...I wouldn't change the purity of their emotions, or the ease with which they can let go of anger, sadness, and fear.

Danny is so loving, and he simply cannot process ugly thoughts. When he cries, it's with crocodile tears, but when he laughs...oh, Irene...he laughs til he can't breathe...and then he laughs some more!

When he hugs...he hugs with all the strength his skinny little arms can muster! And when he smiles...his warm brown eyes just sparkle.

He is my angel...

Just now, he has climbed ingto my lap...and is bopping his head from side to side as he sings along with Michael's "Save The Last Dance" He is saying,: C'mon, Mommy...sing wit me!"



Sorry, had to take a cuddle break there!


He wants to go to take a bath, and then "you gotta lay down wit me, Mommy, because Daddy's back hurts, and because you love me!"

Can't refuse an offer like that. I get a second to sign off, while Carlos and Danny exchange goodnight I love you's.

"I love you..."

"No...I love you..."

I'll check in after he's asleep, because I love chatting with my new friends!

LORETTA--

I certainly agree with you, as always--"simple is definitely more". Oh yes, crackers in milk--I love that too. In fact, I have to not have soda crackers or oyster crackers in my cupboard very often because I have a very hard time keeping from going overboard eating them. As for milk, I have always had a lot--probably too much. "Everything in moderation", right? (except Michael's music--that is REALLY hard to have in moderation.)

Enjoy the good stuff!!!

Love, Jo

Hi to all!!!

Good to see Marlene Ann stopping for a visit, and of course the "company" she keeps..."two top doggies"!!!

Have to say that what she posted is so true...it clearly points out what is lacking in todays society...and it all comes down to FRIENDSHIPS, friendships that would last a lifetime...keeping company...just fooling around...talking and yes...sometimes dissagrements for the fun of it, just plain old "one and one" between friends...no boxes to hold us prisoners...living life one step at the time, just growing...and enjoying what nature had to offer and specially feeling secure and happy.
So my salute to the good old days!!! wow, never thought I say this, hahahaha, getting olddddd but loving it.

Irene...

My heart has heard your voice today! And it wants to share my peace with you!

So, it snowed in Northern Virginia yesterday. Northern Virginia considers any snowfall to be a snow storm. And Prince William County considers any snowfall to be worthy of closing school.

I had two doctors appointments (for myself) scheduled for today, during what would have been school hours. I was at peace. Until it snowed. And they closed the schools. And I have two kids home, and two doctor's appointments. Not so much peace.

So I take my shower, and come downstairs to find my two children in pajamas, sitting on the couch with both dogs and their Nintendo DS games, actively engaged in playing with each other! Hugs, kisses, and goodbyes, while I leave them (and their grandfather, who lives with us, but is totally clueless about all things children) and go to my first appointment.

When I return home with both hands in braces...arthritis in one, and carpal tunnel syndrome in the other... I find my children seated on the couch, with both dogs, playing their nintendo games. Hugs, kisses, and lots of praise for Jesse the older sister living up to her responsibilities, and lunch, then off to the next doctor with both kids in tow.

I leave them in the waiting room, playing their Nintendos, side by side, and return to them 15 minutes later, with a handful of prescriptions for my very uncooperative sinuses...and there they are, smiles on their faces, waiting patiently and quietly for me.

We drive home, listening to our favorite singer, and here I am, typing away to you, while they play quietly in their rooms.

Now THAT, my friend, is PEACE!

Life is good! The house is a mess...the laundry is in piles...I've got a brace on each hand, coming apart at the seams, and being held together with duck tape and nasal spray (These contraptions are, after all, the equivalent of modern day duck tape, are they not?)...but the house is at peace...and life is good.

And so, my friend, I will sit on the couch, and read the rest of the book I started, and check in again in a couple of hours. Until then,

Cyberhugs to all!

Andrea, Peacefully enjoying the quiet!

Irene, my dear, you poor misguided soul.....

There will be no duel between you and Marc. He will be incapacitated completely. I plan to ask the anesthesiologist to give a "little extra something" to keep him knocked out all night long, so even crutches won't do him any good. He is just using idle threats that won't pan out.

Don't worry, Hon, I have it under control completely. He won't know what hit him. Maybe it should be you and I out on the town with Michael. What do you say? Are you going to share him with me?

Excuse me?! Publicly bullied? Chastised? Your so-called assumptions and judgments are way, way out of line since you don't know any of the details going on as I see you just registered on this board today. I suggest that before are so quick to judge that you equip yourself with knowledge first before you plunge into this one.

Goodness, I may have registered today but I have been reading all along, so I am equipped with knowledge, thank you. People post about their everyday trials and tribulations and some are as gracious as to share their personal insights and experiences on life, it truly is a lovely place. I was merely suggesting that in between all of the warmth, someone seems to be going selfishly insane trying to make sure that people answer them and short, demanding posts about emails and PM's amongst other peoples kind words just seem out of place.

Michael is simply my most favourite person, so I hope that you all wouldn't take my posts the wrong way.

Have a wonderful week!

To Amber and my dearest friends,

This thread has been fairly quiet and last week or so. I'm sure it has to do with the holidays.

Marc is gone for a few days so I am sitting here with tons of time to think and reflect on the year gone by and the year to come. I feel so lucky to have found this thread last July. My life has been blessed countless times ever since after meeting all of you lovely people here.

Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but tonight I feel kind of like anything will be possible in this new year ahead of me. Remember that ant who moved a rubber tree plant? Well, I'm starting to feel my muscles flex bit these days and am ready for anything and to conquer some of my fears.

We have laughed together, cried together, and taken imaginary trips over wild sea waters on a ship (with a captain who went AWOL by the way -- you know who you are Ms. Irene) and then trekked in a covered wagon towards our destination. I must say that I enjoyed those trips immensely and think we all reached our goal and then some, didn't we?

Our goal was love and the enjoyment that our kindred spirits share in the love of Michael's fabulous voice and his knack of sharing the love of what he does with each and every one of us. What a year it has been and how his talent has affected us!

Isn't it kind of good when a person has some downtime to just sit and ponder the meaning of life? I still haven't figured it all out yet but hope to get there some day. The house is silent, I hear the clocks ticking, and there's no other sound except for "It's Time" playing softly in the background. Sometimes I am compelled to turn up the volume as loud as I can stand it for certain songs because I simply can't sit still even if I wanted to! And I can't stop smiling. I guess Marc has it right when he refers to those Happy Hearts because they are everywhere.

One thing I do know ......... my life is so much richer now that I know you lovely ladies (and Anthony..........sorry), and that is all thanks to Michael. Our common love of his music is what brought us all together by fate. Oh, what a voice. Oh, what a lovely demeanor he has.

That certain young man who wears a baseball cap and has a right leg with a mind of its own certainly is very special indeed!

The song "Home" just came on. That's how I feel about this thread. It's home for me. He could not have said it better. And home is a beautiful place to be.

Have a good evening everyone. I am thinking about each and every one of you tonight.

Laurie
