Did you know that you are a rock star?
Yes….you….the one with the coffee mug.
Or the hot tea.
Or the breakfast cereal bowl.
I’m talking to you.
You probably hear that all the time.
But today…..I wanted to be the first to tell you.
You see….I know.
I know that….that I know….that I know.
There is something that you can do that is off-the-charts.
And I know that you don’t want to brag and that you probably don’t even realize how special you truly are……so I just wanted to remind you.
Because that’s what friends of rock stars do.
Maybe you can cook the best sweet potato casserole or paint a room in a day or grow a vegetable garden that would make P. Allen Smith sit up and take notice or find the perfect piece of brown toile dinnerware at a yard sale for only .50 or play the banjo with your toes.
Or maybe you are the best listener.
Or the best friend any one could ever have.
Actually…..I’m a little in awe of you.
Yes….you….the baker…the shopper….the gardener….the listener…..and the incredible friend.
I’m in awe of your amazing listening skills and your humor and your intelligence and your ability to greet each day with a smile.
And I am blessed.
Because today you are here.
And for just a moment….in the middle of this harried and hectic life that we are all so busy living…..I got to spend a little time with a rock star….
….just like you.
PS This post is dedicated my very own teenage rock star and his overwhelming, intimidating, mind boggling,…..but going-to-be-off-the-charts-amazing school speech today.
PPS And just in case you were wondering….it’s been snowing here.
