A few hours ago we were at the store buying last minute party supplies for Grace's 6th birthday party that we are celebrating tonight. As we were walking, Willow began singing her ABC's. She gradually got louder and louder and just as I was about to tell her to quiet down, a feeling came over me that said, let her sing. I continued to shop as I wiped away the tears. Her sweet little voice was too much for me to take as I thought about the parents who no longer had their precious children. I pushed my cart around the store in tears of gratitude that I had my daughter right beside me . All of a sudden shopping with her felt like such a gift. I said a silent prayers for all those parents that would have given anything to hear the ABC song again- and in my heart I said: sing baby girl, sing.
