wide as the ring of a bell

I just walked out into the fresh morning snow to feed sheep and the opening bars of Sodom South Georgia sidled up on the playlist. I know every word by heart, and it is impossible to sing it without smiling, a bit of a canter in every step. Even the crows seemed to bob their heads with the lryics.

The day can't get any better.

Jenna-Your words are a song to my heart. I have a little girl who's always singing/humming something. We take violin lessons, but call them (her choice) fiddle lessons. We're also designers, with fabric, not pixels. I say we, but want you to know she's age 6 with a mind beyond her age. My job is to let her use it and keep her young.
We'll be holding seeds this spring, too, but in town, still.
Our farm is coming and your story inspires me to do what I can right where I am...until.
Blessings to you....

So glad that you had a good start to your day! I think sometimes the songs we wake with seem to pick us and what we need for the day. It happened to me this morning this way.
