Ethan loved to listen to piano music. He told his dad that he would be playing the piano one day.
His dad always encouraged him to try new things, but this time there was no support from his dad.
Ethan wondered why his dad felt that way. After all, he figured it couldn’t be that hard to do.
However, he was fortunate to receive support and encouragement from his mother. She secretly arranged for him to take piano lessons.
After a year of piano lessons, Ethan and his mother decided to surprise his dad.
She persuaded his dad to go to a piano concert and that was the night his dad found out about Ethan’s piano lessons.
Ethan was so excited, and he played a beautiful song. It was one of his dad’s favorites.
His dad was so surprised and proud of Ethan and he had tears in his eyes when he hugged and congratulated him.
Ethan could not see his dad’s tears, since he was blind, but he felt them drop on his shirt as his dad hugged him.
