This year at school, we're having a Thanksgiving assembly and the call was put our by our music teacher to form a staff chorus to sing the song Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant. While I'm what most would consider tone deaf, or on some sort of tone deafy spectrum, I do like to belt it out now and then. Especially at school assemblies when we sing This Land is Your Land and Free to Be You And Me. So I decided to sign up.
Our first practice was yesterday afternoon and I had so much fun! It was so invigorating! When was the last time you sang with a group of people? I'm telling you, you should try it. And of course it was an awesome group of teachers. You guys now how cool teachers are right? They're so much fun to hang out with.
I've always loved this song by Natalie Merchant, but it wasn't until practicing the lyrics over and over that I realized how sweet and well said they are. And I just kept feeling like I was singing about my parents. I was feeling bummed that I didn't think to play this song for them at my wedding- but then I thought I should at least share it on my blog.
I love you Mom and Dad! When I hear these lyrics, I think about you guys.
Who would you sing this song for, readers? Let me know about it in the comments!
PS- Thank Your Parents is the title of an Oneida Trilogy set and I think it's one of the best album titles ever.
