Topic: Made my Mom cry
Well, today I made my Mom cry, I finally got the courage up to play for someone "my Mom" other than of my Wife. She had been after me for months to play her something so today my Wife and I went to her home, she's 82 years old, and I played her several songs, one an old Marty Robbins song that I remembered as a child that she loved called "El Paso" I only went over it s few times this morning before playing it, but, it was my version. I played "Will The Circle Be Unbroken", another one of her favorites, Keith Whitleys "Don't Close your Eyes" and several more songs that I muddled through.
She was so surprised and happy she cried, to be honest when I looked up and saw that I just about started myself. Also to be honest it was as good for me "or better" because I look at it as just another hurdle I crossed in so far as playing in front of someone other than my wife, actually I think I did pretty well if I do say so myself, anyway, just wanted to share that with everyone, and to let you all know how much I appreciate everyones help here on Chordie, thank you so much!
PS...After just posting this my Wife just informed me tomorrow that I'm playing for her Mom, she has terminal cancer, so I'll certainly play for her, she wants an Elvis song, so I'll be doing it tomorrow again!
