Something to Warm Your Heart
Imagine a studio musician who devotes his time (with the help of other studio musicians) to write, arrange, and record PERSONALIZED SONGS written for seriously ill children and teens called Songs of Love. I first saw them on 60 minutes with Dan Rather. If you want to be inspired ... do this: click here to go to their site ... and ... click on the video. In 10 seconds you'll be captivated with this man's heart and generosity. Well, anyway, I sent them an email and asked them how we could get a chapter started in Lubbock for our special children and youth facing tough medical treatments and times. We're not sure where all this is heading ... but at a time when we're celebrating love ... I can't help but share SONGS of LOVE with you . As of right now, they have written and delivered 8,600 songs ... and they're hoping to hit 10,000 in August! If you know of a seriously ill child or teen that is facing a difficult medical time or treatments, click here to send me an email and I'll see it is forwarded to the right people.

Come on, Lubbock ... let's live it up in 2006!
