A couple of Saturdays ago, Riley and I took a day trip to Phoenix. We visited with some of my siblings and their kids. We had a nice time visiting. I usually like talking to my kids in the car too, when I can get one to myself like that. We did talk, but she does not always want to talk as long as I want to talk. She doesn't always want to take a picture when I want to take a picture.
How did we fill the car hours? We sang. Riley has a lovely soprano voice. She sings notes that my voice only dreams about singing. I like to sing, but I sing alto. As we sang different songs (her playlist) I noticed that she and I do not often sing the melody. She chooses to harmonize and go higher, while I harmonize and go lower. In many areas of life, she and I often choose different paths and have different opinions. In Road Trip Harmony (yes, I capitalized that!) we do not choose the same notes at all, but we blend. We complement each other. We bring out good in each other. I love this harmony, and I love this girl.
