Tonight, I somehow stumbled across this video and it's one of my most favorite Tongan hymns.
It makes me think back to Sunday afternoons I use to spend with my parents, in my childhood home. I would practice church hymns on my yellow piano, and my Mom would sing along. Since she's a natural Alto, I would sing Soprano and then we'd switch so I could learn the Alto parts. Occasionally. my Dad would join us and hum along to the Bass part. My Dad had such a beautiful Bass voice and I miss hearing him sing, in church. When my Dad would join my Mom and I, we'd switch over to singing Tongan hymns. I was always grateful that he would join us and teach me about some of his favorite Tongan hymns.
Tonight, as I was singing along to video above, my heart and mind found its way back to those cherished Sunday afternoons that we spent together. I miss Sundays like those.
