There are so many people in our lives that come and go but truly do leave us changed as a result of their presence. Sometimes those people do not get the recognition they deserve as being such an important part of our lives, even if they were with us on our journey for only a brief time.
I wrote this on the way home from a friend’s house one night in January. I was struck by memories of all the people who helped me grow in so many ways over so many years. I was filled with overwhelming gratitude and love for them and this song is the way it came out. I walked in the door of my house, sat down at the piano, played and sang it. I love when that happens!
