This Woman's Work

Anyone watch American Idol last night?  Did you hear Michael Lynche do his version of "This Woman's Work"? ... that ended in this reaction

And it wasnt because the song made her sick & she couldnt sit up... it made Kara actually cry...

And believe me, I'm not making fun of her in any way - wanna know why?  Because she at least had a pretty cry going on.... I was sitting home on my couch with an ugly cry going on... (with Ricky sitting next to me saying "What is wrong with you?" haha!!!)

That song just gets to me everytime.  It has been a favorite of mine since "She's Having a Baby" & Kevin Bacon is sitting in that waiting room for his wife to go through emergency surgery...

And then, So you Think You can Dance did this song in the MOST beautiful dance EVER... & yep, that had an ugly cry going with that too...

The words to it are to touching too...showing how strong a woman is & how God created woman differently - to do our own work that was designed for us...

Then this line - The words that say:
But I cant stop thinking
Of all the things I should've said that I never said
all the things we should've done that we never did
All the things I should've given but I didnt

It just hits me everytime... what a life of regret & "woulda & shoulda's" is - how heart breaking it is...

And then, yep, I end up looking like Kara again...

Does this song get to anyone else? Did you see American Idol last night?  What did you think?

And for your dancing enjoyment - here is the So you Think you can Dance version with the song... Got your Kleenex's ready?


  1. I don't know why, Rebecca...but that song, or maybe his version of it, didn't get to me, at all. In fact, I couldn't understand why Kara was crying over it. I'm, usually, such a cry baby, too, so I can't explain it! I am a big fan of Alex Lambert and Tim Urban. I think they both did so well last night...and they're just as cute as can be!

    What a GORGEOUS dance!

  2. this was one of my all time favorite dances on SYTYCD!!! Here I am crying again!!!

  3. I haven't been watching AI - but I've gotta say how young Kara looks in those pics - almost thought it was a teenager -- I need to find out what she is doing!!!

  4. I'd never heard the song before last night, and haven't watched any of the dancing shows, but I was glad to see Big Mike do well.

  5. Big Mike did an amazing job !! I loved it. Getting ready to see you is leaving. I hope he's in.

  6. I've loved this song since She's having a baby too!

  7. holy smokes that dancing is intense! looved it.
