Many of us, myself included, have suffered through difficult childhoods. It is with greater clarity that we are able to evaluate our past from an adult perspective. Though we may be cognizant of the root of our pain, our childhood experiences were tightly woven into the cloth that made us who we are today; they are embedded in the fibers of our being. But those of us who have done the painstaking work know that healing is very possible. We can reweave our own cloth.
In 1996, while working through my own childhood issues I wrote a song called, Blossom, Grow, and Soar. On behalf of children everywhere and forevermore, I would like to share these words.
