My teenagers often tell me that I am technologically challenged.  I have to remind them that I am much better than most parents.  (This may or may not be true, but it makes me feel better.)

It is sometimes hard to believe that I grew up without the computer.  I still vividly remember taking Type Class in high school and – yes! – it was on a typewriter.  So, I think my kids should give me a break.  Yes, they are better than me at almost all things technology based, but they have grown up with it since birth.  I think that makes me (and all of you not born in the 90s) pretty amazing.  Just look at how far we have come in such a short period of time.  I had to learn all of these things after my brain had stopped growing!

Anyway, enough about my awesomeness … there is a reason to this post.  Today I am starting a new type of post for Thursdays – “TBT” or “Throw Back Thursday.”  This has been popular on social media for some time with people posting old photos, but I am going to transfer that to Songs of the Day.  I started posting a Song of the Day on my daughter’s Facebook page 4 years ago and we have shared a tremendous amount of music together.  Starting today, on every Thursday I will post a TBT song from one of those days that begin back in October 2009.  The song I selected today is a favorite of mine.  It just exemplifies emotion in music.

Well, gotta run … I am learning how to Tweet today.  I will catch up to those youngsters yet.
