Today was a difficult day for my girls (and me as well)…
Some of my readers may find this postsilly. If you do, please keep your comments to yourself out of respect of others’ feelings.
In January 2018, one of my girls was introduced to KPOP, specifically an up and coming new boy groupnamed Stray Kids. She shared her interest with her sisters and me, and thus began our crazy KPOP adventure! Many of you may have even read some of my posts on what this adventure has meant to mylittlefamily of four.
We found out this morning that my girl’s favoritemember, Woojin, is leaving the group. The first sound I heard from my Samantha this morning was her anguished cries as she wrestled to wrap her mind around the idea of no longer seeing her favorite music artist perform.
Y’all, it about ripped my heart in two…
Music is a pretty powerful thing. My girls and I have a deep passionformusic. I credit my dad for this insane love for all kinds ofmusic and the artists who create it.
So today my house has been in “musical mourning“, coming to terms with the changes to be faced in losing a key member of a favorite group.
Whatever “personal circumstances” that lead Woojin to feel he needed to leave the group, I wish him the best and hope everything turns out well for him.
For my girls, especially Samantha, I know this will not be the last time there is grief involving music.It’s hard not to get attached to those who bring us joy through their artistry. As much as I hate that they must feel the sorrow, I’m thankful I had a chance to be there to help my girls through it.
How about you, readers? Doesmusic impact you an emotionallevel? Have you ever had a day ofmusicalmourning?
