A Song for New Beginnings

Several years ago, when I married Eric, an old boyfriend sent this song to me. I was so touched by the lyrics that it became one of my favorite songs. Somewhat later, my darling second daughter moved to New Zealand, as far as she can get from me and still be on the same planet. My broken heart remembered this song, and how appropriate it is for a parent and child relationship, and I sent it to her. Recently, I sent it to a good friend to use in a slide show of his beloved niece. His niece is handicapped, and he is constantly reminded he won't always be there to wrap her in his love and care.

And now, some very dear friends of mine are embarking on a journey of their own. I am sending this to you, my friends - to tell you I'm happy for you, and excited, and that you can always count on me. I'll be here for you.

"When You Come Back Down" - by Nickel Creek, a song about New Beginnings, faithfulness and devotion for a friend, lover or beloved child. I hope you will take the time to listen to the lyrics. I'm going to leave this up for a bit, so I can listen, too..and be reminded how valuable old friends are to me.

I'll be back this weekend with an announcement of my newest kit, Family Traditions, and a scraplet or two to help you kick-start your heritage scrapping! For now, thank you to everyone for your support. You mean the world to me :)
