Some of you might have grown up hearing Dick Clark play songs on American Bandstand, asking for ratings from eager teens. If it was a song with a strong beat, it rated high. My mom would get a high mother rating because she provided a beat for my life I could “dance to.” The resounding mantras of my mother’s words echo in my heart:
Take the high road.
Be part of the solution.
Be a loyal friend.
Search for God until you find Him.
Celebrate all you can in life because life can be traumatic. Look for times and ways to mark the moments that matter.
