My Daddy


Today my Daddy has surgery. Susan's here, we'll be playing cards and pretending not to worry.

I'll be thinking about this song: From this one place--Sara Groves (if you click that link, you can listen to it, the player's on the right side of the page, it's black. I couldn't figure out how to get it on here.)

I was about to give up and that's no lie
cardinal landed outside my window
threw his head back and sang a song
so beautiful it made me cry

took me back to a childhood tree
full of birds and dreams

from this one place I can't see very far
in this one moment I'm square in the dark
these are the things I will trust in my heart
you can see something else
something else

I don't know what's making me so afraid
tiny cloud over my head
heavy and grey with a hint of dread
I don't like to feel this way

take me back to a window seat
with clouds beneath my feet

from this one place I can't see very far
in this one moment I'm square in the dark
these are the things I will trust in my heart
you can see something else
something else

Thanks everybody. Everything is going beautifully so far-short surgery, only 24 hours in ICU, he actually slept some last night, and I can feel the buoyancy as so many prayers lift me (us) up.
