With a Little Help From My Friends, #714


We’re going on Day#3 of my daughter being away at camp, and of course, I haven’t stopped thinking about her.  The camp posts daily photos on their website, and already, I am searching in every photo for a glimpse of her.  This morning, I found the best possible picture I could have hoped for.  Here it is:


My daughter has a friend!  I am sure she has many, but just look at this photo.  My daughter and this sweet little girl that I know nothing about appear to already be close.  This makes a Mama’s heart soar!  This picture tells me she is adapting and is getting along well.  She’s okay, and I’m breathing a little easier this morning.

It’s funny…I received a Facebook message from the camp song leader & the camp director.  Their words were reassuring and kind, but nothing touches me like this photo.  A picture truly says a thousand words, and these are really good words.

My song of the day is one about friendship.  The Beatle’s lyrics, “I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends” is really resonating with me this morning, because I know that friendship is what’s going to make everything okay.  Click HERE to go to Youtube to hear this awesome Beatle’s classic tune, as I sit with a smile on my face knowing my daughter is doing well!


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
