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.

  1. I personally liked the part where she was a t-rex unjustly trapped in the transport device.
