Joyce, at Brookside Cottage, is hosting 30 Days of Giving Thanks.
MUSIC! Music is highly under appreciated in it's commonality! We hear it all the time - on TV, in stores, restaurants, commercials, movies, etc., etc., etc.. I think we hear it so much that we don't really HEAR it. But we do associate specific songs with all the important occasions of life. We carefully choose songs for weddings and we remember what we loved on the radio when we went to high school or when our children were born. Can anything quite stir our hearts like God Bless America or Amazing Grace - or if you're like me, something by the Beatles or Rolling Stones from my high school days? Music excites and brings us to our feet. It brings peace, rest, and comfort - I go to sleep with ear phones on most nights. I rock my grandbabies to sleep with sweet lullaby's. I adore a good concert. I can't wait to see Johnny Mathis in November and Mannheim Steamroller in December - Yahooo!
I love music and I am thankful for it's presence in my life.
