I don't know what kind of music you prefer. I'm not even sure what I like best. Guess the most honest answer to that question would be oldies. Maybe I'm trying to relive my youth, maybe not. But a close second would be country. As the (country) song goes: " 'cause they're songs about life."
A while back, I was shopping at Sam's Club. I was busily shuffling the goodies from the cart to the back of the SUV, and looked up to see a young Mom. She was parked next to me, and had her hands full with three little kids, two of whom were screaming. The third was reaching for something and about tipped out of the cart. She looked at me and said, in her most desperate voice "I wish I was YOUR age!"
When the shock of that comment wore off (how could she tell I hadn't just left MY 3 screaming kids at a sitter's?) I just smiled back and said something lame, and went home and spent the next 30 minutes looking in the mirror. Not really, though I was a little hurt!
I wish I had said something to that hassled Mom to help put everything in perspective. Something that a Mom of MY AGE, in her wisdom, would have learned to help someone of HER age. Something like Trace Adkins would have, had he been at Sam's that day. Something like this...
