Singing Moments

Sometimes we just feel like singing….

This evening my friend asked me to join her for church choir rehearsal. I don't sing much anymore so I felt awkward but as soon as the choir director had us vocalize and begin our first song "In the Garden" everything changed. All of a sudden the voice I thought I had lost came back as if heaven't gates had opened up that "lost voice." Oh how beautiful those moments of singing were.

Sometimes when we give up complete hope in our abilities it's really amazing how having a little faith can change everything. That's what happened this evening at choir rehearsal and I cherished all those wonderful "singing moments."

Never give up on anyone or anything because "Miracles happen everyday."

Baby Moments



It's a new year and every moment this year a new baby will be born somewhere in the world. Oh what JOY.

Babies are ever so precious. Today I got to see a new born girl who was in the bookstore with her parents. There I was sitting near the fireplace and right near me were her devoted parents cuddling their little girl. It was so fun to watch her gestures and baby sounds. She was adorable!


Let's be thankful for the babies that bring a smile to our faces and enjoy the moments we have to  observe them.

May each baby born this year have a happy and fulfilling life journey filled with sweet moments.


HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
