NOW WE ARE OLDER

LESSON WITH PEACHES 7/27 WITH “ONLY TEARS.”

My post title is from my song “Only Tears.” It was the second to last song that I wrote, before I gave up my music for thirty years. The very last song that I wrote was the one I played at my own wedding, “Song of Joy.”

I have written about this song on prior posts. Although Cheryl inspired this song, it was for all of my wonderful friends that enriched my life before I got married. I’ve kept in touch with many of my childhood and college friends.

However, there are several that I have lost touch with. I often think about those friends. Long ago we were so close. I wonder what they are doing thirty years after our youthful adventures. I hope to find out someday!

I have enjoyed reconnecting with many, special people in my life during these past six months.

Out of nowhere, came the inspiration for me to add another verse to this song. I am recording it this Sunday, and I’m imagining a great arrangement will certainly enhance my song.

This weekend will be full of music for me, and that means I will be soaring and my heart will be exploding!

TODAY I WANT TO WISH A HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY CHILDHOOD FRIEND, JONI!

BOTH MY MOTHER AND JONI SHARE THE SAME BIRTHDAY – ISN’T THAT INTERESTING?

Joni is very close to my mom. Here they were celebrating receiving their AA degrees at the same time from Valley College.

This picture was taken only two months before my son, Jason, died. I was on vacation in Carpinteria and Joni visited me.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY OWN MOTHER TODAY, TOO!

    Hi Judy,
    Is it faith for me to be here at Borders listening to your music? I went to your website which I find is so inspiring. I’ve been waiting for God’s answer to my prayer… whether to divorce my husband of 15 years or stay together and work it out. Then I read your stories and your compositions. After reading your story, I was enlightened… I realized that I can’t just give up my marriage. I got to do something about it… I should learn how to love myself first to be able to love my husband again. Your stories made me realized my mistakes… my imperfections, and realized that I can’t live without my soul mate, my bestfriend… my husband. Thank you so much, Judy.
