The End of Growing Pains.🌲

August 27, 2019

Good morning and happy Tuesday! After several long months–this is it. The end of this collection of writings called “growing pains”. I’ve written about my own grieving process and now denial simply melts away and acceptance grows…

Thank you to every one who has supported this blog. It is because of YOU. I am grateful beyond words.

So, now it’s time for me to clean up and reorganize. Something is on the horizon and I look forward to sharing new adventures with you!

Be well and keep love alive with all that you do and say! This is an awesome community! 💓

With so much love and gratitude,

This image of a young woman with her aged, dying grandmother to whom she asks, “…sing the song again…”

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead and trust that ALL is as it should be…even if it looks scary.

With love and gratitude,

Hi dear friends and readers. After many long silent years, this is me learning (attempting) to speak/sing my native Ukrainian. Whew! This was a tough one for me…on many levels. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and kind words. 🙏🏻

With love and gratitude,

Nina Zain

This is for you, Baba.

Lullaby for a Friend. 🐸

This is me learning to read music again after many years– with the help of:

A lovely little hymn I Am With You words written by Fred. P. Morris and music by Robert Harkness. This song (and many others in the public domain) can be found here:

For my friend who is feeling sad and lonely today. You are not alone. 😊🙃😊

With love and gratitude,
