As If ...

As if I need something else to get the tears flowing these days.  I downloaded Annie Lennox's new Christmas Album (A Christmas Cornucopia) from iTunes tonight and heard the song "Universal Child" for the first time.  I can't imagine that this song won't move every parent to tears, but especially those of us with kids who struggle every day just to live and do those things that too many take for granted - our extraordinary children who are on this earth to teach us all to love unconditionally, appreciate the simple things, accept what we cannot control and to persevere through adversity.

I invite you to join me in a good cry .............

(there is no video with this, just the audio of the song - so,  just close your eyes and listen)





AND, thank you for all your kind and caring words.  Although I may not sign on to blog as often for awhile, I do get all of your comments via email.  So, know that your comments are received and much appreciated.  I love you guys!

Man, that's a good one that did cause a good cry. Just downloaded and I'm sure it will be on my favorites list through the holiday season and beyond. ~Amanda
