"Hey, Mom," my son David called to me today, "Could you come listen to this piano piece I'm playing?" I complied, proud of him for going ahead and learning new pieces, even when I don't find the time to give him an official lesson for weeks or even months. Despite my good intentions, piano lessons for my boys repeatedly fall to the bottom of my to-do list...and then fall off the list entirely!
There's a clashing sound in my head from my tasks that rush past in a never-ending flood of items on my to-do list; the discouragement that beckons to me every single day is a harsh dissonance in my internal song.
For now, the key is this: don't stop on the dissonant notes!! :)
