More about Anne Britt:
Anne and her husband currently lives in Keizer, Oregon. After raising an awesome blended family of six children, they are now enjoying the empty-nester life. Anne grew up in a musical family in southern Oregon and took to the piano at a young age. As an adult, she enjoys collaborating with other musicians of all ages at Linfield University, local high schools, and in the community. Anne has also discovered a talent for composing music. She has always enjoyed listening to and playing music in a wide variety of styles, and now she’s able to carry that into her writing as well, experimenting with everything from New Age and classical to boogie-woogie, swing, funk, and gospel blues. She likes the challenge of taking a simple, familiar tune and putting a new twist on it to give it a different feel. And composing allows her to take an experience from life and capture the sights, sounds, and emotions of it in music in order to relive the experience and share it with others. In addition to music, Anne likes to play pickleball and wallyball, hike, go on bike rides, and bake delicious goodies to make up for the calories she burns doing those other things. She hopes to stay active to a very old age so she can continue to explore the amazing places around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Song background:

When an acquaintance from our Runners Anonymous group, Gay Tregaskis, sent me a poem she'd written and told me the story behind it, I was honored to be able to put her beautiful and touching words to music. The story is best told in her own words: "When I was expecting my first baby, I wanted an antique rocking chair. I found one listed in the newspaper that said, 'old, but loved.' I remember going to look at it with my husband in November. It was old and worn... the seat springs were broken, the fabric was faded and torn. I loved it! We bought it for a forgotten amount and my sweet mother-in-law had it repaired and re-upholstered for my Christmas gift. Our little son was born on January 31st. I spent hours and hours just rocking God's little miracle. On Mother's Day that year, I woke up and just began writing. There were only one or two lines I shifted. It felt like all the babes and parents who ever sat in the old chair wanted me and mommies-to-be to understand the precious moments spent rocking and bonding. It still brings tears to my eyes. These words are a gift given to me for my children and all who they touch. Our moments to share pass on fleet feet... especially with our children. Please - if any of my poems can be given forward in song, this is the one I want parents to share and to be impressed to never forget how quickly time passes - to cherish the 'now.' If singing our song will give pause for parents to bond, then those souls passed on who visited and inspired this verse will have peace."
