‘Tis the gift to be free

Holiday Performance

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

No, this post doesn’t have anything to do with gardening or food or any of my normal topics, but when my four year old filed into this soulful theater with the rest of his little schoolmates singing this it made me all teary eyed and I thought I would share. We send him to a Montessori school in our 100 year old community center that places strong emphasis in developing each childs true sense of being, something that is very important to Scott and I. We hope in this big world full of commercialism and keeping up with the Jones’ that both of our boys figure out just who they are and find the place that is just right for them.

May we all find the place that’s just right for us.

  1. What a great post. Elliot sang this song for us yesterday, which we hadn’t heard before, and we realized it must’ve been from the holiday party.

    Thanks Peter. I don’t know why, I just think our little ones singing this song is just the cutest thing ever.
