God made me for a reason and nothing is in vain
Redemption comes in many shapes with many kinds of pain
Oh sweet Jesus if you’re listening, keep me ever close to you
As I’m stumblin’, tumblin’, wonderin’, as I’m travelin’ thru
— Dolly Parton, “Travelin’ Thru“
Today is Dolly Parton’s birthday.
It’s also the birthday of Buffy Anne Summers.
Reason No. 427 that Dolly Parton is even cooler than you may have realized: As a partner in Sandollar Productions, she was an uncredited executive producer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
