The title of this post was taken from the song After The Storm by Mumford and Sons.
Music is a big part of my life and it always has been. As a teenager I really liked alternative music and as I dated and married Mike I really got into heavier stuff. I appreciated the artistic talents of many different bands. About two years ago I started listening to Mumford and Sons, and I feel in love with them. After Mike passed away their song After The Storm became one of my favorites. There were many nights I would put that song on repeat and let it play all night long. The lyrics simply resonated with me to the absolute core.
The kids by default get to listen to a lot of my music and some of it has worn off on them. The other day Sebastian made this Facebook post:
I took a screen shot of this and posted it on my Facebook with a message that said "I must be doing something right as a parent :) love that he loves Mumford and Sons." My mom, bless her heart, read my post and wrote on my wall. Here is what she said:
"Who the heck is Mumford and Sons, you must mean Sanford and Son. Great TV show from way back."
Then she made another post that said:
"Sanford and Son were not singers."
Oh, my dear sweet mother. Gotta love her.
