A while ago I went to watch Tony Memmel play in a coffee shop downtown Waukesha. He played Owen’s Song … let me tell you it’s even better live than as a recording. I don’t know what it is about his music that soothes my soul … but whatever it is it sure does the trick.
Today while working on a bunch of Little Warriors stuff (more details coming soon!) I had my iTunes playing in the background. I had totally forgotten about this video until this morning. I had to watch it again. I’m so proud of Owen. I’m proud to say that I am his mom. I’m honored that God chose me as his parent. I don’t know what I did to deserve him, but it must have been something good. I’m certian I can say this about each of my four boys. Even though Owen is gone, he’s one of the biggest blessings in my life.
As I pause from my work, I close my eyes and I just listen. I listen to the sound of Tony’s voice, I listen to the words he sings. I just take a minute to listen. It gives me just a moment to find my balance again before facing the next challenge of the day.
ps please forgive me for singing along
