When I was little one of my family’s favorite movies was The Jungle Book. Not only because of the story and animation, but also because of the songs. The soundtrack is one of Disney’s best. I remember singing along as a family while we watched the movie, and even in the car rides on the way to and from Grandma and Grandpa’s. Fast forward to a couple years ago when my parents came to visit us here in Vegas, my Dad brought some DVD’s of family favorites to share with my kids. Jungle Book was one of them! It brought back all of the fond memories and made me excited to start new ones with my own kids.
One of our favorite songs from The Jungle Book then and now is The Bare Necessities. Although music does not play as big of a role in the reimagined version, Disney made sure to make a tribute to this special song.
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They’ll come to you!
As a mom I cannot help but worry about different things that come our way but I also need to remember and show gratitude daily about how truly blessed and lucky we are. Our bare necessities are each other, visiting family, having dance parties with glow sticks in the living room, cuddling up on the couch to watch a good movie (like The Jungle Book), singing at the top of our lungs to our favorite songs, and so much more. It is those simple things, those bare necessities and moments of pure joy that are life’s true blessings.
What are the bare necessities of your family?!
