"Legend has it there is always a reason why souls meet. Maybe they found each other for reasons that weren't so different after all. They were two souls searching and found a home lost in each other. When souls find comfort in one another separation is not possible. The reasons they are brought together are no accident... Maybe she needed someone to show her how to live and he needed someone to show him how to love".--Poem by N.R. Hart.

My co-worker gave me this beautiful vintage music book today, isn't this cover lovely? A bit of info via Wiki:
Carrie Minetta Jacobs-Bond (August 11, 1862 – December 28, 1946) was an American singer, pianist, and songwriter who composed over 175 pieces of popular music from the 1890s through the early 1940s.
Former U.S. President Herbert Hoover wrote in her epitaph: "Beloved composer of 'I Love You Truly' . . . and a hundred other heart songs that express the loves and longings, sadness and gladness of all people everywhere . . . who met widowhood, conquered hardship, and achieved fame by composing and singing her simple romantic melodies. She was America’s gallant lady of song." Carrie Jacobs-Bond also published books of children's poetry and an autobiography. She drew the artwork for her sheet music covers. The wild rose, her trademark artwork, appears on many of her publications.
Her song "I Love You Truly" was featured in the 2010 Oscar winning film "The King's Speech". Thank you, Pam!
