A Cool Cover...and a Moment of Gratitude

I received a link from my daughter, who is currently studying in New York. I never told anyone how difficult it was for me to close the door to her dorm for the first time and fly home without her, knowing that I won't be able to be mad at her for coming home late and a million of other things I managed to be mad about. I only knew that she wasn't coming home with me and that she's grown up and soon won't be coming home at all!

This is the link she sent.

I've never seen anyone sing that classic, "Stand By Me," with more soul and pizzazz, and it moved me deeply. I played the same clip over and over again, all of a sudden realizing how many have "stood by" me! All of you who read this blog, those who believed in a small tea company that said "yes we can!" and all those little farmers who said yes without any certainty of financial rewards, and just on my say-so sent out 200 tea pickers, for example! I have so much to be thankful for, you all are certainly included...
