Last week I shared with you a Thanksgiving Tragedy – the story of my son Logan’s friend Bailee and her fiance Taylor that were in a tragic accident less than three hours after getting engaged.
Taylor’s sister was killed in the accident and Taylor suffered extensive injuries that will take months of rehabilitation. Many of you have offered up prayers in their behalf and many of you also generously made a donation to a fund set up to help them with their medical expenses. One of my amazing blog readers even volunteered her assistance to help with their insurance problems. Where they thought they would have no coverage, now thanks to the help of one of you, they will receive some coverage. Their needs are great though. You can read more details of the story here.
This last week I also received an email from another Taylor – Taylor Olsen. Taylor is a student at BYU studying Media Music. I am proud to say she is also a reader of my blog.
Even though she doesn’t know Bailee and Taylor extremely well, she was very affected by the tragedy and as a singer/songwriter,she ended up writing a song about it.
The song talks about how love is what keeps us together in hard times. The first time I listened to the song, and about every time since it brings tears to my eyes. The lyrics and music are beautiful as is Taylor’s voice.
She is now offering her original song “Love is the Glue” as a way to raise money to continue to help pay Taylor Morris’ medical bills.
The download for this beautiful song costs what ever you would like to give.

I want to give you a little update on how Taylor and Bailee are doing – they are doing great and miracles continue! They have amazing spirits and attitudes. My son Logan was able to spend a bit of time with Taylor last week and went for a walk with him as part of his therapy. He said that Taylor carried his walker most of the way!
Taylor has been released from the hospital and both he and Bailee are now in Utah and living with some amazing friends and mentors of theirs. This is enabling Taylor to be in outpatient rehab which is a huge blessing!
Please share this post on Facebook and with your friends – let’s share Taylor Olsen’s beautiful music and help Taylor Morris’ recovery – all at the same time!!
