Around this time last year I went to the state fair with my mom. We somewhat accidentally stumbled upon a concert of a country singer I had only heard a song or two from. We watched the whole show and even waited around a bit to get a couple autographs and this photo. I could never have known in that moment how much this photo would come to mean. I didn't know it would be one of the last photos taken of my mom and I together. A memory held in time, shared with this country singing stranger. Well recently I decided to write a letter to this stranger and let her know how important this moment has become to me, and that I'm happy she was able to share it with us. Somehow, by some miracle, my letter actually made it to her. And today, she called me up, just to say hello and thank me for my letter. It still amazes me how much of a bond I feel with someone I've met only once. But Stephanie is a big part of one of my last truly happy and memorable moments with my mother. It was an honor to have her reach out to me. And I just want to share with the world, both this memory frozen in time through this photo, and the fact that Stephanie Quayle is an absolute gem of a person, and my heart is so full knowing there are still people out there who care about others, without even knowing them. Just for the sake of caring.
So thank you Stephanie. For your kind words, your music, and for this moment that I will never forget. ❤
🎶Some days are like whiskey / Oh they burn me / But that's what they're for / Some are like honey / They go down easy / Leave you wanting more🎶
🎶Some are gone before you know it / That's just how it is / How can you worry about tomorrow / When you got all this🎶
And thank you to everyone at WOKO who helped me get my letter to Stephanie. It means more than words can say. ❤
