Hi there! I know it’s been awhile since I last blogged but there has been a lot going on…
We have now joined the rank of emptynesters!
Two days ago, it was extremely bittersweet saying goodbye to our daughter, Amelia, as she embarks on a year of service at the Bahá’í World Centre. I am excited as I know it will be an incredible year of growth and learning for her. At the same time, it is a huge adjustment in our lives ending as the children are no longer at home. I was reflecting today what a gift it has been to parent two children who are now out in the world spreading their wings.
As we were driving to the airport, I sat with my daughter in the back seat of the car so that I could enjoy being close to her for a few more minutes. I suggested we sing one final prayer together before leaving. Fighting the tears, we chanted in unison and treasured the precious moment. We have sung together since the day she was born (well almost)! 🙂
I’m grateful that I am now fully occupied with my upcoming album in honor of the bicentenary of the Birth of The Báb.
Amelia recorded her last vocals the night before she left! Thankfully we got everything done just in time.
Next week I look forward to announcing the title for my new album. Stay tuned!
