It was a music day this morning, Bella decided. While I was still saying prayers she pulled out the song book and began singing. She climbed up in my lap and I joined in with her when I was done praying.
There are a few songs in the book I don’t know the tune to and every once in a while I try to look one up on You Tube while we’re having one of these singing sessions. If I find a good version we listen to it over and over until I learn the melody and words so I can sing it to Bella out of the book. Today I looked up Jennie Jenkins, a folk song I’d never heard before. I found a few versions. The one I liked best was by Lisa Loeb:
I also liked this version:
