During our lives, we meet many people. Some we admire, others not. Some bring us joy; others, sorrow.
But no people form us more as human beings than our parents parenting. I’m fortunate to have had two caring, loving parents who helped me and my sister grow up with integrity.
In March, 2009, I produced a short slide show video on YouTube about our Mom and Dad–Ken and Sally Prows, dedicated to all parents everywhere who care deeply about their kids. So far, over 6,000 people have watched it.
Photos are magical. They capture moments in time we want to remember. In our age of video, it’s comforting to know that pictures remain forever in our memories–especially of the good things that happen to us.
A while back, my sister and I found the words to a song Dad wrote over 30 years ago. We weren’t sure whether he ever wrote a song and played it on the piano (he played by ear). So I decided to write my version of “Sometime,” which tells of his love for Mom and his desire to have Mom equally love him. It’s the first piece in the video. Parents parenting.
Also included are two other songs I wrote–one instrumental and another vocal–called “Go Out and Sing” and “Love and Forgive,” a recent song so appropriate in these troubled times.
The ten minute video is really a tribute to all loving parents, who give everything to make sure their kids grow up happy and live lives of integrity, love and compassion.
Enjoy the video about your parents parenting.
