lately though, i've been incredibly moved by the videos/testimonials that have graced by Facebook/Twitter feeds. i've laughed. i've cried. i've become so giddy excited that i thought my heart was going to explode.
so once again, i'm dusting off the ol' blog (a regular occurrence) to bring you some of my faves of late. and quite possibly for the opportunity to laugh & cry with you. because i haven't done that today. :)
1. the story of an English boy who stuttered.
my son, jacob, needed speech therapy when he was younger... and every now and then, the stammering creeps back. not a whole lot. but a little. they just have so much to say, and they're so excited to say it... it gets overwhelming.
THIS one really hit home. (get the tissues.)
2. movies written by kids.
haha! joe & i near DIED watching this one. my heart was so ready to laugh after the Mushy (previous) video.
3. two guys rocking out on, yes...cellos.
my background is in classical music. i started piano lessons when i was 7, and even went on to study the piano in university. i love classical music. but i love ALL KINDS of music so much more. what these guys did here is nothing short of extraordinary. i think i've viewed the video...oh probably 40x times. no word of a lie.
so there you have it. a bit of a random post for a thursday. :)
hope you & yours are all well on this day. what did ya think of the #snowpocalypse blizzard yesterday?! pretty amazing, eh. and today was the calm after the storm. quite lovely.
