I'm not sure how many people actually read what I write for the description box (under each one of my videos). The GREATEST VALUE, for me, comes from any person who discovers great value from what I've shared. I'm nearly brought to tears, EVERY TIME, when complete strangers let me know that I've helped them because of what I've shared. These, once complete strangers, become timeless friends. My heart is constantly frazzled because I'm not able to respond to all of my YouTube friends who have taken their valuable time to let me know how they feel about my efforts. Thousands of people have sent me messages, commented on my videos, and/or my profile page, and have blessed me with many wonderful praises, thoughtful sentiments, and kind wishes of good luck. I AM SO SORRY IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT I'VE NEGLECTED. PLEASE FORGIVE ME. I respond to as many as time will allow, on top of enjoying the videos of those who are happy to share their efforts with me. I will continue to do my best to respond to all of the kindness that's been shared with me.
This YouTube journey is an investment for me. I'll patiently wait for the day when my children truly appreciate what I've done. When they read and enjoy all of my personal expressions, as a whole, I'm praying that they'll come to realize that I've done ALL OF THIS for them, and for my entire family. God willing, YouTube will stick around, my YouTube account will still be intact, AND, I'll still be alive, when Ever, Emersen, and Cara, will come to me, smother me with endless embraces, and have that appreciation become tears rolling from their eyes. Silently, I'll look into each of their faces and hope to find the magical recognition that I seek. I can dream, right!?! I know. That part about me being "silent" will be a MIRACLE!
I've enjoyed sharing this wonderful adventure with my family, whether they've liked it, or not! I've brought my loved ones into the fold, and I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm also very proud to share the video time with my children. Ever, in particular, has thoroughly enjoyed this YouTube journey! In fact, Ever insisted that he kick off 2011 with the very first video of the year! Without further ado, I present Ever performing two short piano pieces, rolled into one video. Enjoy!
