These Small Hours - For the Love of Bailey
"Our lives are made
in these small hours,
these little wonders,
these twists and turns of fate;
time falls away
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain"
- Rob Thomas, Little Wonders
“Bailey, a blind 95-lb Collie-cross, came into our lives to teach us how to live life in awe and wonder, beyond fear and without limits. She may have been blind, but Bailey instilled deeper vision in us all. We adopted her, but in many ways she rescued us.”
– Verna Lee Bowen, Author
A special note from Rob Thomas, Matchbox Twenty, author of Little Wonders, after hearing about Bailey and how this song impacted the telling of her story:
"Dear Verna, let me first say that Mari and I are so sorry to hear about Bailey. As you may or may not know, LITTLE WONDERS was written about our rescue, TYLER, and since his passing, it has become even more special to us each time I play it or we hear it Also, let me congratulate you on your book. It's quite a feat to actually finish one Best of luck with everything. See you on the road."
