When we came home after the birth of our granddaughter, I found a tattered copy of Roses For Savanna, and other bedtime stories on my kitchen counter, along with a rosebush in a glass jug, cookies, and a card—gifts from my neighbors. I was puzzled until my wife read the note: “Thought you might want this back.” Daleen had given them the book years ago when their kids were young. The inside cover had my daughter’s name written in her fourth-grade cursive. My granddaughter’s name is Savanna. Today, Savanna is 5 and loves to hear the stories, in the old book, told over and over again.
How nice was that?

What wonderful memories you have my friend.
it is funny. When my daughter was little I made up a song for her. I called it the moon song. She asked me to sing that song at her wedding.
