Jim, touching heartfelt words,I hope and trust each parent in Newtown will know we send love, caring thoughts and so much deep sympathy, at this saddest time in their lives. Lovely lyrics and Elton,so fitting today. Greetings from Jean
Jean, I am sure the parents of these children and families of the adults slain are benefiting from the love and caring thoughts from all over the world.
With the way I am feeling this morning, you could not have picked a more perfect song. Enjoy your Sunday, Jim!
We are all feeling a little 'altered' Kim and will for a while.Thanks for dropping by and have a great day.
It is. Thanks Pat.
Hey Jim!Just wanted to say a few things here to you...I love those photos of the sweet baby from a recent post, her tugging on the sock, the obvious enjoyment of all there (including the dog!), I love those tins you showed us also, especially the one with the imprint (does it make that imprint onto a cake?), and I MUST tell you that I do seem to be taking greater CARE in cooking and baking because of Ivan and reading his blog. Did I find Ivan from your blog or from Terry's in Colorado? I know I found you through Martha's blog. So thankful!Oh! And I saw Elton John in the 70's in Atlanta, and he gave such a great concert. I said afterwards he could just play the piano and I would go to see him.
Hi Kay! That morning spent with my nieces was a lot of fun and enjoyed by all.I faintly remember that tin leaving a slight imprint when my Mom was using it. But, I will just have to get at it soon and find out!Ivan IS an inspiration for sure and I too am happy to have 'found' him here.I hear Elton still gives a good concert. I bet back in the 70's he 'brought the roof down'!!
Jim, I meant to also say how much I hope that the families are helped to bear this tragedy by all prayers from all over the world. I hope they do feel the love. I did not mean to sound flippant here. Just wanted to make sure that you knew that. (That is what I get for trying to type a comment in about 30 seconds!)
My heart is heavy for the families. So heavy.
That heaviness will lift for all of us in time.
Beautiful choice for a tribute song. What a terrible tragedy for all the families.
Thanks Debra. I thought Elton could convey 'the child' each of us has better than most.
Hello Jim,Thank you for that - love that song and it's good to listen to the words. So sad...Ivan
Most welcome, Ivan.
Thanks Jim. We all needed that.
We sure did, didn't we.
that was very lovely, as always Jim. Thank you.
Thank you, Jim. xx
Beautiful song; a great choice for a tribute. What a horrible tragedy this is.
Jim-- such a beautiful and peaceful song..... makes me almost cry though. The whole world is sad right now--Vicki
Elton John has so many songs that speak to the heart, and this is such a beautiful song. This horrific event in Newtown is just so hard to fathom. Looking at the faces of those twenty children is heartbreaking; I can't imagine what anguish their parents must be feeling. I look at the adults too, and it's very hard - because their faces could be the faces of any of my fellow educators. Such a waste of lives. My hope is that finally people will start getting serious about caring for people who are mentally ill, addressing violence in our society, improving elementary school security, and reforming the gun laws. We've been sad after too many tragedies and not gotten serious about dealing with the problems.
Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
