My brother’s good friend delivered a baby boy who had no hope for living more than a few hours on this earth. It just wasn’t meant to be. The family was able to be in the room and hold this perfect little baby until he just fell asleep in the mother’s arms. It was a bitter sweet experience for all of them – and a very painful one for the mother. She was having difficulty getting past the ache. My brother asked if I could write a song just for her about this baby. We spent time on the phone talking about the experience. She shared some very tender feelings with me. It was a thrill to have this song come to me pre-packaged by someone who was having a life-changing experience of her own. When the family heard the song for the first time, her little girls made a remark about the last note. “Listen, Mom! It’s an angel’s bell.”
