I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    Well, that’s a tune I have never heard before, but listening to the whole thing like that almost made me cry. Very nice tune. Thank you for sharing, and of course again thank you for playing along with us at Monday’s Music Moves Me. I always enjoy your tunes and your company! Hugs my friend. I applaud you!
