    Beautiful! Hey were you at the dvd shop yesterday? I heard Ming say his name as I was leaving. He is tall!

    merry christmas julie ming and anthony xx WOW it was a harp lol i was sure u were just trickin! AWESOME!!! ❤ love and hugs xx

  9. I think the red strings are C and the black strings are G. But don’t take my word for it. It is beautiful! And he looks so handsome with it. GOOD JOB JULIE

    • jmgoyder says:

      You’re right! Ming is used to playing guitars and he can read music so he got the red C but not the G – I’ll tell him in the morning – thank you! Have you had a good day too or isn’t it Christmas yet?

  10. Northern Narratives says:

    That’s wonderful. Merry Chritsmas.

  11. That is awesome!!! Merry Christmas!

  12. That is just priceless. So glad it went over well. Now you’ll be treated to beautiful music for your reward. I mean it’s sure a lot nicer than the aftermath of giving him a set of drums.

    What fun! The wife of Gordon Bok, who wrote “Turning Toward the Morning” is quite an accomplished harpist. Her name’s Carol Rohl – you can see a little about her and her instrument here . It’s a wonderful gift – I wish I were young again and smart enough not to give up my guitar!

  14. What an incredible present, Julie!And Ming looks right at home with it. Music: one of the greatest gifts you can give 🙂 Have a wonderful Christmas.

  15. Wow what a gift and good to read that he loved it……………the harp is not something we think of people playing very often but the sound of a harp is just so pretty…………

  16. Louise Kirk says:

    Wow!!! a Harp! I can’t wait to hear his original song- ‘I like coffee, I like tea’ 😉 what a truly wonderful gift Julie. Look forward to catching up in the new year, love to you all, Louise & Ian xx

  17. Louise Kirk says:

    whoops, I mean…”You and me, cup of Tea”…;)

  18. OH my goodness! Sooooo extremely jealous right now!!!

    What a lovely gift … and I’m so happy that Ming are pleased with the gift. A harp isn’t what all young man has high up on the wishlist. Wonderful and what a great photo.

  20. Your son reminds me of mine, the hat, the longish hair and the intense focus on the instrument. As I was reading all of the comments, I kept thinking that you are most definitely a great musician’s mom, meaning that any musician would be thrilled to have you for a mom. Musicians as children are definitely a different breed.:) I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!

  21. FlaHam says:

    Julie, Does Ming play “the Blues” that music is so harp friendly? I am surehe will love the gifts.

  22. FlaHam says:

    Julie, what a wonderful gift, though i was thinking of a haromia when you said harp. I recently was a story about student hap players and was very interesting. I wish Ming much success. Take care, Bill

  23. dcwisdom says:

    What a cool gift! Whatever made you think to get him a harp? That gift surprised us all, I think! 🙂

  24. Lynda says:

    I hope to hear a recording of Ming someday, Julie! There is nothing more lovely than the sound of a harp. My sister-in-law played the harp for our wedding. It was so beautiful.
