In 2005, 2 weeks before my firstborn was married, I wrote and recorded this song to be played as a surprise at their reception. Nothing like waiting till the last minute and all. *rolling eyes* I put down the guitar tracks first, then recorded the singing. We did it each part with one take because I knew the more I sang the words, the more my voice would break. *grin* It was REALLY hard to get thru it! The collage was done just before the recording, and I couldn't find just the right song so I sat down and wrote one in an afternoon.
They were definitely surprised, and it went over very well with everyone. Kleenexes were the fashion that day...I like to share it with those in the midst of diapers and runny noses and temper tantrums. It somehow puts it all into perspective. I'm not an overly religious person, but I've always felt my kids were gifts from Someone Very Good. And that the Someone knew exactly what They were doing in giving me the kids I have.
So when my son was little, I used to tell him I was so glad Jesus gave him to me....that He chose me to be his mom. I said it constantly to him. That's the foundation for this. Hope you enjoy....decorating fluff will resume sometime soon, I promise.
