One of my favorite songs is The Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler; from the movie Beaches. The song depicts the relationship between two woman, Bette Midler and Barbara Hersey, and their undying friendship, love and devotion despite their differences. I love Bette Midler as an actress and singer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaches_(film)
Whenever I hear it on the radio, I think of my husband, John Anthony Marin, my rock, my ever positive influencer in my life, the most resilient person I know, who kept me from shrinking into the depth of despair as each sister-in-law left this world because of Huntington’s disease. http://www.hdsa.org
John was the wind that supported me as we traveled through turbulent times in our life; he is still my biggest supporter and I would fall to the earth without him. We now travel together into a smooth, calm breeze of peace and tranquility.
So I ask you. Who is the wind beneath your wings?
