    A picture is worth a thousand words

    This was Mary's birthday party, she lived in a foster care home. She would scream with joy when something pleased her. In this case, she just wanted to put her head on my chest and hear me sing. Mary is no longer with us but I will forever treasure this photo.

    Haha yeah, went to Nashville last year and showed those boys the proper way to play a "G." LOL

    And you're right about the vibrations - there's just something innate about having your head on someone's chest when they're singing; that's how I used to put all our babies to sleep, rocking and singing.
