Music Monday! Rihanna – Diamonds

It was my Dad’s birthday yesterday. Memories always flood back on this day, including the last time he and I heard this song together.

My Dad and I were sitting together at his crazy wedding in Mexico City, finally having a moment to ourselves after a whirlwind few days. Rihanna’s sultry voice comes on and my Dad happily leans over and whispers, “I really like this new song.” He giggles in his classic way, then asks me if I want to dance with him.

Ever since, I always try to shine bright for him.

He would’ve been 69.
