From the twinkle in their eyes
Then a touch of the hand
To the swelling of her belly
To the day of your birth
When she held you in her arms
And together
They looked to the heavens
"Thank you God for own little piece of heaven. Thank you for our star."

When I was first a star was when I got in to the "ag" program at school... now the only reason I say that is because it was an "I told you so" moment!!!! I had been tested three years in a row and each year I didn't get it! So when the "ag" teacher told me I got in.... because of my eog grade I felt like ha ha ha See I told you nanananabooboo I was right you were wrong!!!!
but seince then my STAR moment was when I was pulling into Nathen and Beckys little yard and walking up to Nathens door... my heart jumped out of my body and it hit me right then..Image.. I was actually there!!! It wasn't a dream!!!! (although I am haveing seconed thoughts about that) I had a wide wide grin on my face because it was like WOW!!! I am soooooo lucky to be meeting thease people!!!! I can't believe it still how wonderfull they are!!!!!!!! Image Image Image Image

Out of all the times that my grin gets the bigest... and I think "oh I really do matter" things like that... I'll have to say that waching the sunset with a friend is the best thing in the world (yes better than Ben & Jerrys Ice cream)!!!!!!

Once,when Arlo was talking about Steve Goodman and the story about the City of New Orleans, he also added a part about how it is important that we get the chance to meet our "heros", the people who have guided us from afar.That it is important that we each keep in mind that we need to try to offer the same "meeting" to people who may hold us as heros.
This past week, as I joined Xavier on vocals and guitar for several songs, I had one of those revelation moments...singing "This Land Is Your Land" with Woody's grandson, in 5 part harmony with the band, The Garden Song with Arlo's son, City of New Orleans, Stealin',...How can I begin to say what it meant to me? There we were, surrounded by the kids I've taught "Guthrie" to for years, sharing with them our own historic event.
It was a moment of Past, Present and Future coming together in sound. I am still blown away by the beauty of it all.
I was so proud to show Abe that these kids know the importance of his heritage, and how it has become our heritage too. The kids sang along with us and one came up and sang part of The Garden Song on stage...she being a child who aches to play the bass guitar, now has somemore positive incentive. Another child, in 1st grade has been playing guitar for a year. He stood there, wide-eyed hanging on every note that Tim and Randy played. Getting to talk with them afterwards also reinforced his young musical passion.
For several days here, heros were everywhere, and we all were one great big shining star!!
