The average human heart weighs about ten ounces—that’s more than a gerbil and less than a can of soup. And yet, sometimes, the heart can seem so very heavy.
But there are friends and puppies and kittens and sunsets and rainbows and fields and mountains and rivers and soup to make the heart feel lighter. So the weight of the average human heart is sure to vary, which makes it less like a can of soup and more like a gerbil.

It was early in the morning when I wrote that first paragraph and I was listening to a poignant recording by friends Wayne McKinzie and Rene’ Janiece who perform as Bittersweet Highway. The song was ‘Who’s Gonna Love You?’ which is about to be released on video. It’s a sad song and sadder still now that Rene’ is battling cancer.
I saw this glad-hearted woman at the coffee shop last week and her smile was as radiant as ever…bittersweet you might say. To follow their music and their health challenge, check out their website and their latest music video at the links below.
