That Glorious Day

Last week I got an email from a lady named Shelley Murley. She is a friend of my sister and other friends of ours. She is the mother of four and on the side she is a song writer. In her email, she told me that our mutual friend told her about me and she has since been reading my blog.  

She wrote, "One morning as I read your beautiful words in your blog titled "Breathe" almost an entire song quickly formed in my little head.  It wasn't until you wrote "Blame"  that I was able to completely finish it."

I got this email just as I was coming down from last weeks high. Shelley's email continued, "After many gentle promptings, I decided to record the song this morning. I am in no way a professional singer (I usually use talented people for that job) but this time, I wanted you to have a song today. I know with all my heart, that you will one day be with your sweet Camille again, and it will be a glorious day."

I too know that day will be glorious. I think Shelley has a lovely voice and it is perfect for the song. Thank you so much Shelley. This song gives me peace and hope. It expresses my feelings all too well. 

Please enjoy the little movie/slideshow I made to go behind the song and you may want to grab a Kleenex before you watch.
