I’d never heard this song until I ran across it in this post on Peter’s Pondering. The COVID19 pandemic has hurt everyone, not just those afflicted. Social isolation is difficult. Last week, I made the painful decision to turn down an invitation from my brother in Florida to spend Thanksgiving with him and his family. Much as I would have loved to celebrate the holiday with my relatives there, it’s too risky, with Palm Beach County, where they live, being one of the hottest spots in the state for the virus. Not only am I concerned about catching it, but I don’t want to inadvertently pass it on to someone else. So, as you listen to this song, I hope you’ll take away its powerful message that you’re not alone and know that a better day is coming.

New! The Red Dress
Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books
When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
