It’s my friend Maddie’s birthday today.
Back in 2015, when Maddie was just graduating high school and we were honoring her and the other members of her class at our church’s youth group, I wrote and played this song for them. It’s been a special song to me because they are all so special to me, but I’ve never gotten around to recording it (as I haven’t for many of the songs I’ve written, unfortunately.
Well, for Maddie’s birthday, that’s finally changed. Happy Birthday, my sister, my confidante, my…dude [does finger guns]. I hope you have a wonderful day, and that this recording in some small way reminds you of how much I love you and am proud of you. There’s still a lot of journey left, and I pray that you will continue to be a wanderer and feel the road on your feet for years to come.
Happy birthday, Mads.
