Whew! I Did It

Day 30 of 30 Days Challenge

Well, I made it. I committed to writing a post every day for thirty days and publishing them. Today marks the thirtieth day. In a way I’m glad it’s done. That little stress is off the board. Now onto other things.

During this adventure there were times it was hard. It scared me I might not be able to come up with enough

My mom played a guitar and all my favorite country western singers played guitars. I wanted to play one too.

Mama had an old black and brown steel string guitar. She played old cowboy songs and sang along like Patsy
Montana. I’d sing too. Our favorite was I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart.

I don’t know what compelled my mom to learn to play, but for me she inspired me to pick up the six string and strum away.
