There are moments that you remember, that change your way of thinking, that change the trajectory of where you were going. For me, Whitney Houston’s rendition of The Greatest Love of All was one of those moments. To this day, I shed a tear easily when I reflect back on how this moved me, altered how I felt about myself, kept me going as a kid. Even today, when I’m feeling low, I recite the words and if I can, I play this song, this version and I’m always inspired.
The power to do that — the power to touch a life like that with your gift, is so mysterious to me. I pray I use my talents and gifts just as brilliantly. Thank you Whitney Houston. May you rest in peace.
