Andrea Pearson: Keeper of the Stars


In case you haven't heard, my dear friend over at Goodnight Moon hosts the What's YOUR Song? Link-Up every Thursday.  It's as simple as it sounds: pick a song, post it on your blog, and link it up. 
 
 
 The last time I participated in the link up, I shared Miss Willie Brown's "Freeland," a beautiful song about military spouses keeping the home fires burning.  Since then, several anonymous commenters have added songs to my Deployment Songs playlist, one of which I wanted to share today. 
 
 
My song choice today is called "Keeper of the Stars" by Andrea Pearson.  I know nothing about the artist, but the song moved me to tears.  If Miss Willie Brown's song is my anthem for military spouses, then Andrea Pearson's song is my tribute to military brats. I dare you to watch without a box of Kleenex.

  14. I definitely cried. I'm a Canadian Military Spouse and military brat - but we were stationed in the States when I was younger. That song is amazing, thanks for sharing.
