Comfort


I am editing like a mad woman for my website and feel completely isolated....good but a bit isolated.

This photograph instantly made me think of the song Comfort by Deb Talan. I have included the lyrics below. I heard Deb wrote the song for her friends that were having babies. Now some years later she has had her own!

***oh and I have a little tip I learned about making layers work that I am going to go post on my business blog right now....*****

Comfort by Deb Talan

When everyone has gone to sleep and you are wide awake
there's no one left to tell your troubles to.
Just an hour ago, you listened to their voices
lilting like a river over underground
and the light from downstairs came up soft like daybreak
dimly as the heartache of a lonely child.

If you can't remember a better time
you can have mine, little one.
In days to come when your heart feels undone
may you always find an open hand
and take comfort wherever you can.

And oh, it's a strange place.
And oh, everyone with a different face
but just like you thought when you stopped here to linger
we're only as separate as your little fingers.

So cry, why not? we all do
then turn to one you love
and smile a smile that lights up all the room.
Follow your dreams in through every out-door
it seems that's what we're here for.

And when you can't remember a better time
you can have mine, little one.
In days to come when your heart feels undone
may you always find an open hand
and take comfort, there is comfort.
Take comfort wherever you can, you can, you can.

hey you -

I listen to this song at least once a day. I love it. It speaks to me on a really deep level, especially when things are crazy in my world. Sigh.

Thank you for giving it to me on a different level.

I love your photography...you have made the photo of this little one a timeless treasure. Breathtaking. I would like to say also that congratulations on getting your weight down. It is a struggle for us moms and after the kids are a certain age we can no longer blame it on them and the pregnancy anymore. :) You are beautiful, by the way, and I love the pictures Sarah Smith and Boho girl took of you.

One question about your picture...how do you get that awesome frame on it?
