Music helps heal the broken spirit. I’ve always felt that way. And on this, a particularly challenging day as I miss my mom, I was thinking of a song that Mary Chapin Carpenter performed back in 1994 that was inspiring to me then. And it is again today.
” You know we got this far, darling, not by luck, but by never turning back
Some will call on destiny, but I just call on faith
That the world won’t stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, to what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way.”

with an inspiring and incredible performance by the great ladies of country music.
It made me smile today. Maybe it will do the same for you. And if you have come by everything the hard way, as many of us have, here’s to your strong heart and perserverance.
Happy birthday Chapin
