The Hope, #1136


My Mom is just landing in Israel as I write my blog this morning.  She is there on a mission with a group of amazing ladies from my community.  I have some big guilt about not going with her, because this is a women’s mission especially for mothers & daughters.  While you all might think I’m awful for not going, I must defend myself.  My grad school semester is about to start in a couple of days, and it would have been really hard to have missed the beginning of a semester with no time on the mission designated for homework.  I’ve committed myself to grad school and doing a good job in it, so though the sacrifice this time is big, it’s what I needed to do.

That said, I am already following every word of all of these women on Facebook.  So far I know of their travel craziness – re-booked plane tickets and snotty-nosed germy seat neighbors.  Most importantly, I know that they have landed and are waiting for some of the other ladies to land and gather at Ben Gurion airport.

Sure, I miss not being there, but I am so excited for all of them to have this experience together, and so I want to give them all a song today.  Ladies of the Heart to Heart mother/daughter mission, this song is for you!  Enjoy every moment, because I’ll be following every step of the way.


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!
