Sitting at the piano, I played a simple seven note melody. Stewing around with it for a while, I knew I wanted to write a song to describe the heart of a caregiver.  Playing with it bit more, I kept coming back to that simple melody.  After a while, I reached out to a friend and veteran songwriter, Buddy Mondlock, and we wrote this song together. 

There's a lyric in this that sums it for so many of us caregivers:

"I know there will be sorrow. We'll face that somehow.  But my hands can't hold tomorrow ...I can only hold you now." 

Gracie asked to sing it, but she also expressed a great deal of nervousness about performing it in the studio. Asking her why, she replied with tears in her eyes, "This is an important song to you, and I wanted to get it right." 

She did.  

We hope you enjoy this bonus content from our podcast. 

You can listen to this song on all streaming platforms or get it on Amazon or Itunes.
