Caught off guard by this mother's touching gratitude, Adam cleared his throat before speaking.

"Thank you, that meant a lot to me," he finally managed to say. "I'm so sorry to hear about your son, but I'm glad he found a degree of refuge through my music."

"Wallace," asked Norman, "how much of an impact do you think you have on your fans?"

"I have no way to really answer that," replied Adam. "Whenever I receive an exceptionally touching letter from my listeners, I like to think that I'm making a difference. But you can't equate record sales to touching someone's life. I can only pray that God uses me to the fullest measure that He can."

"What goes through your mind, when you realize that you're effecting people in such a profound way?" inquired Norman.

"I think the first thing that occurs to me is an overwhelming sense of responsibility," answered Adam. "Then, it's usually followed by a slight case of panic. It's like the Bible says, 'unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.' [Luke 12:48] I've been given much, and there's not a day goes by where I don't feel the responsibility of it in some fashion or form. But," he smiled, "it's always a great encouragement to hear from people like Doris. It reminds you that what you're doing does count, no matter how small or insignificant you may think it is at the time. If you're doing it for the right reason, it will count."

"And on that note," smiled Norman Jones, "we end our broadcast. I encourage you to join me next time, when I talk to Bill Anderson about his best-selling new book, 'The Sum Total of Us: Money Management for Couples.'"

The light on the camera turned red, and Charlie suddenly realized that the interview was over. She had made it through the entire hour without stuttering or tripping over herself when she spoke-- at least, she hoped she hadn't.

"I enjoyed our time together," smiled Norman, collecting his notes and handing them off to an assistant. "It was very enlightening."

Adam gave Norman a sideways glance, while someone unclipped the small mic hanging from the lapel of his suit jacket.

"I was referring to the comments Charlotte made," explained Norman.

"I know what you meant," replied Adam, helping his wife out of her chair. "I had no idea she was going to say those things about me."

"I thought she was charming," smiled Norman, nodding in deference to Charlie.

Charming? Charlie hoped that wasn't code for "gushed over her new husband like a teenager." But Adam only smiled, and Norman shook hands with the couple before they left the studio.

The sky was just beginning to turn color as they climbed into the limousine and headed back to their hotel.

"Are you embarrassed I opened my mouth during the interview?" wondered Charlie, hoping that Adam's response wouldn't be in the affirmative.

"You did just fine," he patted her hand.

Even with that less than enthusiastic vote of confidence, Charlie didn't think Adam's behavior was too out of the ordinary. He seemed to have a lot on his mind, but given the events of the day, that was hardly surprising.
