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.

Love, Mel

ps please forgive me for singing along 🙂
