For my Start a Smile, I decided to do something for my grandparents. They have always loved hearing me play my saxophone. Every time I had a concert they would always come. Since they’re both from Poland, I learned a few Polish songs to play for them on my saxophone. After I learned the songs, I face timed them and played for them. They both got so happy once they heard me play. They said it made their day and them saying that made my day. It’s really not hard to make someone smile in this difficult time that we’re in right now. You don’t have to prepare songs like me, it’s the little things you can do to make someone smile. Me playing for my grandparents was my way of showing them how grateful I am that they’re in my life. They are always there for me.
