Occasionally as parents we are able to do something so fantastic for our kids that we create a dream come true. It doesn’t happen often, I have found. In fact, it often ends up being quite by chance. But when it happens, it is most assuredly one beautiful thing.
Last weekend we took my daughter and our foreign exchange student to Nashville to experience the Grand Ole Opry. An American institution, the Opry has been airing live on WSM radio for 85 years. It just would not have been right for us to have hosted an exchange student here in the South and NOT taken her to the Opry. Right?
We knew that Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley would be there when we bought the tickets. Honestly, that was enough of a reason for Scott and me to go. But as is the norm with performances at the Opry, on Wednesday before we left for Nashville, they added a new performer to the show:
And yes, that would be my twelve-year-old daughter’s favorite singer right now. To say that she was excited would be an understatement of epic proportions. She was beside herself with anticipation. This photo captures that exuberance that is one of my favorite qualities in this beautiful daughter of mine.
I think she is amazing!!
Here’s a bonus pic … my favorite one I took during the show.
Tell me, what is one beautiful thing about your children?
Linking up with my friend Brooke to share #OneBeautifulThing.
