My daughter came quietly into this world, but not without the sense of adventure that she still seeks out today. She was, and still is, BRAVE, tenacious, and lovely. Without medical intervention, I'm not sure either one of us would have made it past that day. Her umbilical cord was wrapped around her and every time I would have a contraction her heart rate would drop. I had an emergency c-section and she was quietly lifted from my belly into this world. I had never known love until that day and when things were scary, I was lucky to have my own mom there to support me.
The love for our children is powerful.
One song that I am recording on this album is called Raspberry Kisses...you know, the kisses that you make on a soft baby tummy that makes them squeal with laughter... the kisses they give back to you when they grow older for that same treasured tickly feeling and uncontrollable laugh.
Raspberry Kisses is a song to remind ourselves to enjoy our children in the very moment that they are in because they grow up much too fast and we can't get that time back. Those moments are the ones we'll cherish when we're old and gray -- the times when you let yourself be a kid again and play, have pillow fights, dance in the rain, or cuddle up together and watch a movie.
I love the saying, "When you're old, you won't regret the things you did, only the things you didn't do."
Thank you for helping me take a risk and follow my dreams. This is snippet of a very rough mix of Raspberry Kisses. I'd like to dedicate it to all the mothers and fathers out there. Please find it in my songs posted on this website.
