When I was a little girl, a very little girl, my mommy used to sing Away in a Manger to me as a lullaby. It wasn't until I was much older that I learned that it was a Christmas carol. It holds a special place in my heart.
I loved to listen to my mom sing. We sang often as I grew up. We sang while driving in the car, while we worked, while we were sitting around with nothing to do. It was a wonderful pastime. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, I lost my song... not a certain song, but the desire to sing and sing and sing. Perhaps it was when she died young. Perhaps it was the hardships of life. Perhaps it was something else. I don't really know. I'm asking God to give me back my song.
Away in a Manger seems a good place to begin.
