Erin's Journals

Thursday, June 2, 2022

Just a thought… Teach your children to dream big, that the sky is the limit and that anything is possible if they want it bad enough. [Billy Cox]

You can watch a video version of this journal (and you’ll want to today) on my Facebook page, or here on YouTube.

Hey there and hello from somewhere on the beautiful Rhine in Europe – likely in Germany, where we spend most of the week. I have for you today a video that I’m just so thrilled to be sharing.

It’s not our two-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter Jane playing Mozart. I mean, I’m sure she could if she wanted; the way she runs for the piano the minute she gets in our front door is a joy to behold! (Okay, maybe not.)

Colin? Well, let’s say that seven-year-old Colin doesn’t have Jane’s musical enthusiasm. We had fully hoped that with Lauren’s and Phil’s talents, we had the makings of the next James Taylor or Taylor Swift. Nope…that doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Maybe LeBron James or Jonathan Swift, given his skill set, but probably not a musician. So that’s why one of his answers here came as a surprise. I did suppress my laughter; who am I to question his ambitions? Our job is to encourage, enable and applaud. Or gently usher into another lane, if the opportunity or need arises.

Anyway, enjoy this candid lunchtime conversation and I’ll be back one week today with a new journal for you. Monday we’ll be flying, so I know you’ll understand me missing one. There WILL be a new Drift with Erin Davis sleep story on Tuesday June 7th. I love this one: it’s called The Necklace, which I’ve also titled, “The Jewel of Denial,” about a woman who just can’t be happy with what she has, and oh, the price she pays! It’s a good one. Take care, my friend, and have a lovely weekend, won’t you?
