- Ray Charles, later
"I Can't Stop Loving You" is a popular song written and composed by country singer, songwriter and musician Don Gibson, who first recorded it on December 30, 1957, for RCA Victor Records. It was released in 1958 as the B-side of "Oh, Lonesome Me", becoming a double-sided country hit single.
The song was covered by Ray Charles in 1962, featured on Charles' Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, and released as a single. Charles' version reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1962, for Five Weeks, as well as the U.S. R&B and Adult Contemporary charts. The Ray Charles version is noted for his saying the words before the last five lines of the song on the final Chorus: "Sing the Song, Children". It was also a country No. 1 for Conway Twitty. It was ranked #161 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and #49 on CMT's 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.

From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 02/09/15 - "Gratitude":
Gratitude: The Key to a Happy Valentine's Day
by Melonie Dodaro
Valentine's Day is so filled with pseudo-romantic fluff that its true
meaning easily gets lost: Gratitude and appreciation for that special
someone in your life.
Expressing gratitude has been
shown to give people a big emotional lift. It does the same for
relationships. Gratitude and resentment or anger cannot reside in the
same place at the same time. So once you fill your heart with gratitude,
the negative emotions won't have a place to settle in and will
impossible, but it has possibilities.”
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/05/16 - "TO MY FRIENDS WHO THINK THEY HAVE SEEN EVERYTHING (#31 in a series of 60)":
I think you will enjoy this!
OOH! Thanks, Dools!
