FOREVER 3 = The best start to my day!

         A few months ago, I was taking a creative writing class with my friends Olivia and Debbie, and Olivia and I went to the final showcase of all the classes that they were having of the community education program.

At the showcase, there was a woman who performed a song she wrote for the songwriting class that, quite honestly was one of the sweetest songs I have ever heard. It brought both Olivia and I to tears while she was singing it.

I approached her after the showcase ended, and asked if she would mind sending the lyrics to me in an email, and so we exchanged emails and I was so excited to get a copy of the lyrics... well, I lost her email address because of my organizational skills (or lack thereof) and thought after I hadn't heard from her for months that she had forgotten me and that I would never again hear the song.

Last night, I was thinking about it randomly and was feeling pretty disappointed about it, and then woke up this morning to an email in my inbox from her! In it, I found a link to her video on YouTube, and she told me that she had recorded the song and her brother in law had made the video.

This made my day! I am so happy to finally have this song whenever I want to listen to it! I think it is so beautiful, and absolutely fitting for mothers of little ones.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

With Love,

We were both bawling. Glad she didn't sing it right before we went on or I'd have a hard time reading my piece. Remember the girl we thought was deaf... but wasn't.... So sad.

She WASN'T?! I didn't know that. What was going on?

Olivia Carter said...

Oh man, didn't we talk about this after. How I say her talking to her friends after, like normal. I think she just sung like that. Poor girl. I felt bad... and then I giggle.

Oh no, you didn't! Oh goodness.
