My mum taught my son a little tune on the piano one afternoon last week.
She invested time and effort into making sure he got the keys just right.
And pretty well, every day since then, I have heard him tap out the same tune – almost like a little ode to the time he had with her.
Her tune keeps playing well after she’s gone.
What tunes have been passed on to you?
And what tunes have you passed on to others?
I think we all leave a melodies behind us wherever we go – some sweet… some not so much.
I can think of a lot of different tunes left by friends over the years – words and moments which emerge as poignant memories.
Some relationships have been like a symphony, leaving their mark on me forever.
Everything we say and do has the potential to leave a mark – sometimes long after the relationship has ended.
How will you impact the people around you today?
What ‘songs’ will get stuck in their heads for days after you meet?
How will you make a difference, and allow others to make a difference to you?
