Oh to be a mother! You spend your life worrying about how they will cope out in the real world: will they eat enough, wash behind their ears, set their alarm clocks so they are not perpetually late for everything, get their hearts broken, forget to put gas in their car, the list goes on and on... and then they come home with 6 months worth of laundry and stories about how hard it is to juggle class work and their social life - 'it's all so hard mum"! But for the few weeks you have them home again in the summer, those moments of stress subside and you are grateful that they are safe and well and yours.
My boy Joshua
Josh is studying music at Bennington College, Vermont. Much too far away from home in Virginia but what's a mum to do. Below is a link to one of the songs that he wrote recently. He usually plays acoustic guitar but he let rip on his Les Paul electric for this track! Take a listen when you get a chance - this ol' mum would greatly appreciate it!
