This song written in SATB has become our "family song" and we have sung it on many family occasions. It is fun to have family members harmonize in 4 parts. It was written many years ago for a skit for our church in which a rebellious teenager finally realized the blessing of having a caring family. It could be used in a church setting or simply enjoyed being sung by your own family. My oldest daughter Delsy wrote the words as she has done in several of our other songs and she and I collaborated on the music. She is a high school English teacher and has written many beautiful and thoughtful poems.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
