Remember when..... spotting a yellow bird was something to tell the whole world; taking a drive down fragrant gravel country roads was Sunday entertainment; back-yard cookout grills were the size of a pizza pan; windmill cookies were a treat; Grandma would let you have a one sip of Coca-cola on the sly? Simple Times will let you cherish those thoughts. Dedicated to Kathy Helton (1932-2005), Mom enjoyed those simple times. She was always there to sponge your tears away and make you feel like the most important person in the world. Even through difficult times, she cemented her marriage together for over 50 years. Let songs such as 'Autumn Leaves' take you through those memories of love-lost passion. 'I Can Only Be Me' will move you to be yourself - just like Mom always said you should. Other vocals, combined with instrumental selections truly make this album special in remembering and reminding what it is that makes our lives really worthwhile. Original songs, 'The Gift' subliminally describes the healing process of forgiveness; 'When It Matters Most' reflects how God is always there for our needs, but let's not forget to pray for God's blessings during the good times; 'Beautiful Day' and 'Time' remind us that it's not too late to appreciate the good things in life; and 'Light Our Way' speaks to praying beyond our own needs. Life is certainly precious. It's not what we possess that makes us somebody, but who we are that uniquely defines our soul. We never really own anything except our souls; we just possess it, reassess it, dismiss it or pass it on.
