My niece got me into Taylor Swift. She's fourteen going on fifteen, passionate about music, and a total joy to be around. You can't not smile around her.
Talking on the phone with her about the newest album, she gushed, "Don't you just love the song Fifteen!! It's my favorite!" To which I replied, totally laughing, "That's because you're a teenager."
She asked what my favorite was and I said, "Best Day. It always makes me cry." And she replied quickly, "That's because you're a mom."
So today, even though I'm not her mom, she sent me this video. It still makes me cry.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there.
