Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Piece By Piece

In March Kelley Clarkson's new album Piece By Piece came out. Downloaded it and spent some driving time getting ready for her tour beginning July 11. Got our tickets for the concert on our 40th anniversary July 12 at the Xfinity Center. (See how much my hubby loves me? Lol)

The first single hit the radio a few weeks ago and as soon as I heard Heartbeat Song, I knew we had a new Kelley. Up until now, her music was filled with a lot of anger. Until she met Brandon Blackstock, now her husband. Heartbeat Song was the first happy song she ever wrote. Its bouncy, playful, and gives us a glimpse of a life completely turned around.

I'm two thirds of the way through the album and the title song Piece by Piece caught my attention. “Men can be kind and a father can stay” is a line from the song. Piece by Piece is Kelly's answer to Because of You, a video that tears your heart out. Song by song Kelly tells us how she has evolved and become whole by her marriage to Brandon and the birth of her daughter, River.

I like the concept. Usually the important changes in us take place over time, piece by piece we are dismantled and rebuilt again. Whether we are talking about letting go, weight loss, changing our diet for the better, adopting an exercise routine, etc….it all happens piece by piece.

And so, as another day goes by, thank you for the insight, Kelly, and I'm looking forward to the concert this summer!
