~Just as a mother feels the beat of unborn child I feel the rhythm from your heart ~ you are loved. The music of you heartbeat so piercing and so sweet you are special and unique and ~ you are loved. Yes there are those bad days, bad times, (hard, hard, hard ones too), but, hush now, hush now, do not cry ~ you are loved. I sing for you a heart song to nourish you within You are safe, and you are cherished ~ you are loved. Let my strength pick up your spirits carry you along. You aren’t alone, you aren’t forgotten ~ you are loved. You my friend so beautiful I sing to let you know. Do not be sad, I’m here for you ~ you are loved.
*“On those loneliest days when you feel such despair Reach out your hand, a friend will be there!” *

Just when I think you couldn’t possibly out-do yourself, you go and do it!
Thank you, so much Sheri, just sort of spilled out of me after worrying about another blogging friend of mine! 🙂 xx
Really beautiful Penny xx
Thank you Ruth, enjoy your weekend my friend! xo
I feel the hope and the love floating on the breeze (heading east of course). 🙂
Absolutely heading East LuAnn! 🙂 xo
A timely inspiration in a world that needs someone to call a friend. To have someone to pour out ones heartaches and pain. A true blessing everyday. Thanks.
Thank you very much for your compliment and taking the time (a valuable commodity for us all) to read and comment. I appreciate it very much, thank you.
Penny, thanks for sharing this. I can picture you reciting these wonderful, loving words. They go straight to my heart. Much love and many thanks. xo
After reading your beautiful and moving words I was inspired to do so, Amber. I’m not a singer but I actually came up with the melody for this also. Don’t laugh here, but I hummed it into my webcam so I wouldn’t forget the melody, now I just need to find someone who can sing to turn it into a real lullaby, lol! Much, much love to you my friend! 🙂 xoxo
I can’t wait to hear it sung in person. Much love Penny. xoxo

That is so beautiful! Thank you 🙂
Hello Sally, how are you doing my friend? Thank you too! 🙂
Doing well, thank you, particularly now that our baby granddaughter, now 7 weeks old, is doing well after a frightening start with a brain haemorrhage. We are all breathing better now though the future may have uncertainties.
How are you doing? 🙂
Wow penny that really touched me…
Just what i needed for a new day!! Xx
Absolutely my pleasure, I meant every single word too! xx
Now im crying …
Oh i hate myself ! Sorry
Nah, no hating … you can end up accidentally in a playback loop” that way. You know I have an overactive tear duct (cry easy) but it lets the icky stuff out. So that’s cool. Dry you eyes, I don’t know you, but you write well and I have a hunch there’s a lot more good stuff inside of you waiting to come out … just a hunch! xx
Its just painful stuff that im plodding my way through ..guess just like all my fellow bloggers..
As for the crying im really trying to belong to my family and battling as they only wanna know me if i play happy families “”and cnt anymore ” sorry i can feel myself getting angry oh man…i so wanna belong !! ???were do i fit in life ?
Thank you for kind words !
Just a few things for you to think on here. You happen to fit perfectly within yourself. Sometimes (we female nurturers) forget to nurture ourselves!
Perhaps it’s time for you to be good to you, for you (not selfish but developing personal self worth, a whole different thing!). You’ll discover the family views you differently also. And you’ll end up fitting where you want to fit. How about that?
You are so very welcome, I hope my words are of some value Lisa! They are meant to help, and I base these words on my own experiences in life! Take care of you, Penny xx
beautiful words Penny 🙂
Thank you Gys, dear friend across the seas! 🙂
Haha I had just written a long comment, but realised it was how I feel sometimes 😆 So I’ll just say – thank you Penny
Your most welcome dear friend of mine! 🙂 xx
