The Wind Beneath My Wings

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. 

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. 

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?
