My cd collection series continues with this, post number 35.
Tom Nix would occasionally play special music at Cathedral of Hope in Oklahoma City. Tom would play piano and sing. Once he sang this song:
I liked it so much that I began to request it. Eventually Tom gave me the cd Grateful: The Songs of John Bucchino. A variety of stars from Art Garfunkel to Liza Minnelli perform the songs on the album, all written by John Bucchino. They are easy listening with smart lyrics. This is not the music I normally listen to.
But when we drove a few weeks ago to meet the woman who had selected us to adopt her child, I grabbed a bunch of cds that I thought would be relaxing. This was one of them. Michael had never listened to it before.
As we drove back from the meeting, I played this song "Grateful" and then the song "This Moment" sung by Kristin Chenoweth:
Since then, I have played these two songs repeatedly as I've imagined holding my newborn son.
