4th Grade Program

Will's class at school was having their 4th grade music program. They had asked for people to sing parts. He signed up and came home and announced that he got the part. When the day before approached I asked him "Hey I haven't heard you sing or anything? Are you still doing the solo part?" He told me "I don't think so, because I don't sing in the microphone" "Why not?" "Because when I do, everyone can hear me sing" . . . "Well that's the point honey". I had to call the music teacher to find out if he was singing. So sure enough he had a part that he had NO IDEA it was going to be in front of everyone. My heart ached for him and the embarrassment that I knew he was feeling - - - BUTTTT!!! I could not be MORE PROUD of him for going through something that was incredibly hard because he committed to do it.

The song was"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey, you'll never know dear how much I love you, so please don't take my sunshine away!" So we were driving in the car the day after and I was telling him how proud I was of him for doing his best!! I knew he was nervous. I started to cry - I told him there were no word to express how much I love him. He yes there is mom . . . my song. We both sang the song together.

Oh my goodness, I love how tender this is. I have felt that same heartsickness for my children before. Nothing is worse. What a great kid Will is, and I think that's so amazing that he went through with this because he was committed. He has a great family, and I'm sure you're all proud. Too sweet!!
