AKA Day 16 of 365
About 6 months ago, my honey and I bought my oldest son, Kyle, a Martin guitar because he graduated top of his class. It was a promise I made to him when he had just finished his freshman year, graduate valedictorian and you will get a Martin. You see, my son LOVES music. No, really, I mean it oozes from his every pore. So much so that I don't think I have ever seen him walk by any kind of musical instrument without at least smiling at it and touching it in some way. He can pick one up and within minutes seems to be playing it like he had been doing it all his life. I love to hear him play guitar because he seems so peaceful when doing so. He looks so calm, so happy. I love this side of him. He had just posted on facebook talking about how he loves the sound of a new set of strings, and he loves his Martin. I love knowing that we were able to provide something for him that he cherishes so much and that, when well taken care of, could give him a lifetime of pleasure. This knowledge brings me pleasure. He deserves it!
