Good morning and happy Saturday! I went to bed past midnight, which for me is REALLY late, and woke up singing Beach Boys songs since we went to their 50-year reunion concert last night. What a treat! After three hours, my thirteen-year-old asked, "How many songs do these guys know?" Fifty years' worth, I suppose, though they actually only sang 47! Anyway, I only know a handful of people who are still at something after 50 years; my Godmother has been married for more than 50 years (Congrats Sue and Clay!) and our dear friends David and Cynthia Hearn just celebrated their golden anniversary, my Aunt Norma retired after 50 years as a classroom teacher and one of our Assistant Superintendents (Myrlene Kennedy) has been in education in FISD for over 50 years. Their dedication and commitment inspire me!
In honor of the Beach Boys and their musical legacy, I've decided to put Saturdays aside this summer to showcase an inspirational song. So, get some coffee or tea, turn up your speakers a smidge and enJOY my first Saturday Song:
Today I'm Gonna Try To Change The World
by Canadian artist Johnny Reid.
