Today's song/Three Little Birds - sung by Stephen Marley

This song, these words are like a prayer to me. 

Over fifteen years ago, a friend had breast cancer, and these were the words in my heart as she went through her surgery. Everything was indeed alright, and there’s never been a hint of the disease since. 

Then last fall when Margaret was in the hospital for those five weeks, the hardest and scariest of my whole life, she saw these three little birds outside her window

and I saw this number plate in the hospital parking lot

We all took it as a sign that Margaret and her unborn baby girl would be fine. And they were.

The past few days, I have been aching with fear because one of the friends I love best in the world is in critical condition, in an induced coma, and on life support. This morning, Three Little Birds came on the radio, and I am praying it is yet again a good, good sign that all will be alright with him.

I couldn't find a good video of Bob singing this, so I thought his son's version would be the next best thing.


  1. Oh Nan, those three birds AND the car tag, that is really something.
    I loved the video, loved how the audience responded with "gonna be alright!".
    Praying for your friend, dear Nan. x

    1. The birds and license plate were really amazing. And thank you for your kindness.

  2. First, my favorite of your banners. then, all the three little bird signs. This touched my heart and soul, Nan. I will pray that the Three Little Birds will see your dear friend through - and you.

  3. Keeping you and your dear friend in my thoughts, Nan. xoxo

  4. Thinking good thoughts for your friend!

  5. Love catching up with you, Nancy, with your blog, the photos of the big kids and the little ones, your thoughts, poems, and music! xx Marty
