Well that was unexpected

My parents are in town for S's graduation tomorrow, so this evening I played the three songs I've written (thus far) for my character in my YA romance novel so my mother could hear them.

She liked the first one. Loved the second (and insisted it needed to be recorded and "out there" in the wide world). And then she cried through the third one because, she says, it's so gorgeous.

Well that was unexpected.

I haven't quite gotten past the surprise of it, but it is indeed nice!

Thanks, Laura. I'm especially pleased with the lyrics to the third song in particular. And having a hit song would certainly help pay the mortgage!

Oh, wow! And no matter how old we grow, parental approval means so much.

That is so wonderful. How beautiful that your mother is so supportive of you. I know you are talented, and I have not heard the songs but I know they are beautiful.
It's just that I never knew that kind of love from my parents and it really touches me to hear about it. I am happy for you.

Re: well that was unexpected
Thanks for that vote of confidence. It's not something I've always had, either, but they have their moments.

A musician can't hope to move an audience more than that!
