I had a wonderful moment yesterday. Actually, it was about four minutes of wonderful.
A few weeks ago, I was watching the Grammys and the group, Lady Antebellum performed. I liked their music so the next day, I spontaneously bought one of their CDs. I don’t often buy CDs so this was a big purchase for me. Since that day, I have been listening to the CD in the car because Chris and I don’t have a stereo at home.
There is one song on this CD that just moves me so much. Every time I hear it, my eyes well up with tears… and I mean, every time. It doesn’t matter what kind of day I’m having, when I listen to this love song, I just get lost in the lyrics and the music because it communicates so beautifully how I feel about my husband. I told Chris about the song and he smiled. One day, he was driving in the car and he listened to the song on his own. He smiled again.
We hadn’t listened to the song together however, and that got me thinking that we needed a stereo in our home. After all, I’m married to a bass-playing musician and we both enjoy music. Chris quietly plays music on his computer but it’s just not the same. So, I decided to take the money that I have been saving up from tutoring and give Chris an early birthday present.
Chris was like a kid in a candy store. As soon as he got home from the music store, he set it it up. We listened to the demo CD to appreciate the great quality of the sound. Then, I decided it was time to listen to the love song together.
So, in the mid afternoon, Chris and I stopped everything, put on the Lady Antebellum CD and slow-danced in the living room. For those four minutes, nothing else mattered. We just held each other and danced.
It was worth every cent of that tutoring money.
