After my mom played the piano today, my dad encouraged her and told her how much he loved to hear her picking up and working through a new piece. My mom took a few minutes and reminisced about her last piano teacher. She started lessons with her after playing for about 40 years. Yet, she said she learned so much from her and playing with her was a completely different experience. She explained that her beloved teacher helped her to play the music with feeling – with her soul. My mom took lessons from her for 23 years. She was dedicated to the woman, continuing to visit and play for her as her health failed. My mom misses her still after 15 year since her death. I have such respect for my mom – her dedication, her humility, and her open-mindedness to have more to learn even after decades of practice.
I Found God today in my mom’s dedication and humility.
