I'm just over a year into being a parent, and I feel like I have more failures than success stories (although my wife, who's the best wife ever, assures me I'm doing great). So when I can score a point with my son, I'll take that and put it in the "win" column. That happened recently thanks to Journey founder and guitarist Neal Schon.
My son's a HUGE Journey fan, and we took him to his first Journey concert last year. Since then I've been tweeting back and forth with Neal about my son's love of the band, and music. He started taking sax lessons awhile back, and there are days it can be challenging. Neal was cool enough to send the tweet below:
Those three words put a smile on my kid's face a mile wide. It also made me tear up a little, because I was able (thanks to Neal) to do something for my son that made him happy...and that made me happy. And all it took was a few seconds from a rock legend...and that moment will stay with my son for the rest of his life.
This just goes to prove you're never too big, too successful or too busy to take a moment and influence the lives of others. Thanks for that moment Neal!
