Imagine if we all heard our parents singing this song to us when we were little,
“It’s a joy to get to know you, it’s a joy to get to know you and I really am liking to
share in your world. When your love is deep and quiet, I can hear you so clearly,
you’re calling forever to share in your world.”
The first time I heard that song, I was so excited! It’s how I feel about my daughter, it’s how all of us want to experience our childhood with our parents, but how many of us even felt appreciated, loved, welcomed or valued?
I encourage any one who loves their child(ren) deeply (or themselves too!) to consider listening to this song by Shaina Noll. It is from her CD, Songs For The Inner Child. Her songs are deeply comforting, deeply healing and beautiful.
Our three year old daughter said to me yesterday, “I think we should listen to this music more often!” Of course! Why wouldn’t we!! I sang “It’s a Joy to Get to Know You” to her last night as she was going to sleep and she sang it with me. I’m not sure life can be more precious than that. I am so deeply grateful for this parenting experience, for learning how to be myself again, for opening up my heart and letting life in more deeply, for the full journey and experience it is meant to be.
Please see this link from Shaina’s website for a video of this song that was made by one of her fans:
It is a joy to get to know you, you are wonderful just as you are and you always were:)
