I have always loved to sing.
As early as I can remember I would memorize lyrics so I could belt it out.
I would sing along with the radio everywhere I went.
This obviously annoyed many of my siblings, so I often heard the phrases, “STOP SINGING” or “SHUT UP!”
Even as an adult I am occasionally told to stop singing.
But, the shower has always been the place I can sing without interruption or feedback.
So the other day I was singing my favorite tunes in the shower.
As I stepped out of the bathroom, my daughter was standing there smiling at me with a look of admiration.
“I really liked your singing Mommy.”
The simplest words hold the most love.
I felt so loved by her in that moment.
Kids tell you what they think so purely, and their positive words are life-giving.
This little moment was a great reminder for me to say all the positive things I am thinking.
Never hold back the positive because it might mean the world to the person hearing those words.
