So SO sorry, but I CAN’T resist

I realize this post is probably incredibly socially inpet, but I just received the highest praise I can imagine, and I want to share it.

I was wandering around the house singing songs I’d just heard, and my 14-year-old son said, “Mom, why don’t you sing songs on the radio?” I was sure he MUST have been being sarcastic, so, in order to be sure of his tone I asked, “What did you just say?” He said, “Seriously, Mom, you should sing songs on the radio!”

Whoa!

Granted, he IS a sweetheart, but realize this was coming from a . . . TEENAGE . . . BOY . . . to his MOTHER . . . who was walking around the house singing randomly. I think it’s one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received and something I will treasure.

Don’t worry. Not only will I not let it go to my head, but you may also rest assured that I have no plans to pursue a recording contract! The air waves are safe (well . . . from me at least). Sorry, I have no control over the actions of Paris Hilton.

Why should you be sorry? I think it’s fantastic! I feel teenagers often speak pure truth when it comes to praise. (Much else just get mixed up on the way out their mouths, or they actually ment to be mean). Even if you’re going to keep your singing in closed circles, just lean back a moment and imagine the delight your grandchildren are going to experience, having a granny who can sing. Actually sing! And how good it will feel to you, too! When they beg you to sing it one more time: “please-please, the song about the rain, just one more time!” (Here I of cause refer to my own favorite: “Early morning rain”). Good moments are here to treasure, and they will just keep coming! Don’t stop singing!
