I'll Fly Away
Tonight Star Belle played a set for the volunteer firemen of Beaver Crossing. The kids sat eating at a fold out table beside us while we played, and I looked over and winked at Nora, and she winked back. Later when I looked at her again, she was eating the noodles I'd spooned onto her plate, and I told God how much I appreciated that she liked them (she's going through a picky-eater phase). I was thinking all of this while my mouth was singing other words and my hands were strumming chords. And later yet, I glanced her way and she was singing along: "I'll fly away..." And when we finished, she sat on my lap and told me I had done a great job and asked if I would like her to fix a plate for me from the potluck, so I could eat, too. But I just held her instead, and we clapped for those receiving awards. When it was over, she pretended to be a T. Rex stomping in boots through the rain. I love her.
