Today as my piano student played his song, my heart was just overwhelmed.  You see, he was playing “Lean On Me.”

This lanky football player who will soon be headed into high school.

And his mother sits in my living room just around the corner from where he plays.

Having recently had surgery for breast cancer.

Quietly she rests and listens to him play.

Her hair is gone and she faces more chemo.

Who can call you when they need a friend?
